Feature Request Without Patch.

Not to mention something you can already do from the INFO menu...

I'd say this is a bug - see "Utilities / setup: > "Edit Keys" > "Video" > "DELETE" The option is there, but it does nothing.

Please note that this is talking about "Media Library" > "Watch Videos" - and NOT "Watch Recordings" where the options works as expected (and as mentioned, user can delete the video file using INFO menu and / or "D" key to delete.

I noticed that this is a common request, and since the fix should be simple, it might be worth the attention.

Thanks, Andrej Falout

Again, it is already possible to delete videos in MythVideo? using both the delete keybinding (which is set globally, not per-plugin) and the menu. There's nothing to fix.

Thanks for the reply, Robert. Can you then please help me understand how?

Option one you mention (delete keybinding (which is set globally, not per-plugin)): Under "Utilities/setup">"Edit Keys">"Global" there are keys for: 0-9,down,eject,escape,help,info,left,menu,nextview,pagedown,pageup,preview,right,select and up. There is no DELETE key that I can see anywhere?

Option two you mention, ("the menu", assuming you mean the menu displayed when global key for "MENU" is pressed while a video file is selected in "Media Library">"Watch Videos", the menu shows options: "Select action: Filter Display, Switch to browser view, Switch to gallery view, Cancel" Again, no Delete.

So how do you do it? Can you please confirm in your setup? My version is 0.22-0 on Suse 11.1

Also, the key set in "Utilities / setup: > "Edit Keys" > "Video" > "DELETE" as mentioned before, has no effect, which to me seems like a bug - If understood the purpose of the setting correctly, it should do something, or not be there?

Thank you for your help. Kind regards, Andrej Falout
