[mythtv-users] Anyone working on a Movie Trailers plugin? Considering writting one

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?
