How can this script be used within MythTV? Is there an area to enter
in the movie you want? Is it to get the trailer for a movie you have
in the mythvideo section?
I think I'm going to work on a more browsable trailer plugin. One
that mines the list of avaliable trailers, and allows you to browse
and play them. Make it extensible to handle any of these trailers
I was thinking of using MythNews as a skeleton for this, any other ideas?
