More commonly know as the video list in list view mode  :)

The third column in this (the actual video list) has the format "{Title}
{Season}x{Ep} - {subtitle}", e.g. "Stargate Atlantis 5x01 - Search and

There's an lot of duplicate content there - the Title and Season are

subtitle is not visible, its cut off, when really its the most important
part of that column.

Ideally I'd like to see just the Episode number and subtitle in the third
column. Is it possible to implement this? maybe as an option of theme flag?

I tracked down the relevant code in videolist.cpp, Line 855:

  QString TitSeasEpSub = QString("%1 %2x%3 -
