Hope your other questions from yesterday was answered. Let me know if there 
are still open questions. 

Regarding new features. I'm open to other people sneaking in new features for 
the next version, but personally, I will be more than busy with finishing the 
improved video support.

Regarding mplayer. I agree that it might be a bit hostile to insist on mplayer 
on the system, but even just thumbnails for videos are done with mplayer. So 
if you do not have mplayer, and you have a single video you will be doomed :-)

It would be rather a lot of work to ensure all code paths works fine even if 
mplayer was not installed, so in that case I'd rather just insist on it.

BTW: If your system offer mplayer2, please use that instead of mplayer, as 
mplayer2 is much better at extracting length of videos.

Having trouble finding a given image in your collection containing
