Hi

I love MC. Couldn't live without..

I sniffed the behaviour of the file access of MC and I have a suggestion to speed things up:

Let the user select (Options) if he wants to include "-trailer" files or not.

I noticed that MC searches for all sorts of media files (.avi .divx .xvid .mov .mkv etc) containing "-trailer" as a suffix, which it apparently won't find 90% of the time.

My stupid NAS is the bottleneck of my network, I know, and its Samba server is kinda old.
But still, when I select a movie in MC, it takes 0.2 seconds to search and load the fanart, 0.1 sec to search and load the .nfo, 3.7 sec to search for a non-existing -trailer.* file and 0.1 seconds to search and load the .tbn .

That's 3.7 seconds too long...

When I add dummy "-trailer.avi" files to my folder: it takes only 0.5 sec to load and display the data in MC.


You could also include a selectable filetype list for general file searching or add checkboxes within the Options Dialog containing the different media file extensions.
Myself, I only use .avi and .mkv files in my folders. So I'm not interested in MC browsing for all the other formats.

Again, thanks for your work.

Cheers
Bunts
