    I'd rather have taxonomy/hierarchical folders.

    Would also be nice if we could log into our Photo Hosting sites and not only Flickr !!!!!

    I would have thought the skim video tech from iPhoto would be more useful.

    coverflow would also be confusing. what i want is a grid style like in the itunes movie store on apple tv

    Yes I would like a grid broken down by genres, just like in the store.. That would be much easier for us with large libraries.

    It is very unlikely that we will get a fix for this though... But we can hope right?

    What Apple needs to do is AT LEAST make the "focus point" of the scrolling images in the middle (like it is in cover flow) and not over to the last title on the right.

    When you scroll through, you can comfortably see each title as you go... until you get to the end of the screen. Then, you only get one new image per click and you're focusing at the very end of the line.

    Instead, the highlight should be in the MIDDLE and right clicks move the next title INTO my centered highlight area, instead of moving me along to the end of the page.

    Like cover flow, but without the fancy angles and tilts (though I agree full-on OS X style Cover Flow would be best).

    Once that's fixed, apply it to "My Movies" and "My TV shows" as well.

    It's like this:

    Where it SHOULD be like this*:

    (*Unless of course you can give us actual Cover Flow... in which case I vote for that ;) -Hell, even the "Carousel" effect from the .mac web galleries would be impressive looking.)

    Please, let Apple know. I also sent in my comments yesterday. I have a growing collection of "home movies" I've been transferring to digital format so we can watch years of the kids growing up on our tv. There is a huge need for some method to organize this movies other then just one long list all mixed in with commercial DVDs that have been backed up to the drive.

    It is a mess.

    I agree. The interface for My Movies is lousy. SOMETHING needs to be done!

    I FINALLY found a place to submit feedback on the :apple: site!


    Here's what I sent to them if you want to echo my sentiment.
