Continue Watching?
« on: May 28, 2015, 08:58:42 am »

Is there a Continue Watching section somewhere, or a way to turn it on?  With the Theater View right now, i have to either remember what i was watching and navigate to it, or i might be able to use Playing Now.  But what i'd like is something similar to Netflix's Continue Watching section - a list of shows or movies you've been watching.  For the TV shows, it would be ideal to just show the cover art for the whole show, rather than listing individual episodes.

Did i miss that feature somewhere?

You can actually now set up a View for exactly this purpose, because Matt loves us (Hendrik was in there trying, though).

This is the magic:

I have one now, and it is wonderful. I've been meaning to write up a How To on this. It isn't too terribly difficult to accomplish. I'll try to get around to that sometime soon, but it might not be until this weekend.  If we get to Sunday and you haven't heard back, bump this thread.

Thanks, glynor.  I'm bumping this as per your suggestion.  I'll review the details of the link in the meantime.

Doh.  I meant to.

Sorry.  I've still been fighting a cold I got from my 4-year-old, though, and I spent all my goof-off time finishing the Rename, Move, and Copy Files wiki article this weekend.

I'll get to it (but not tonight, I'm tired).  It is possible now. Maybe not exactly what you envision, and it takes a little elbow grease, but it works extremely slickly.

I look forward to seeing this write-up as well. It could improve the WAF quite a bit.

I'm currently using a separate Theatre View view and a specific Keyword to place the current bunch of TV Series we are watching into their own view. A more automated method based on what was watched recently would be great. Of course, I'm making assumptions as to what would be displayed in this "Continue Watching" view.

PS: Just think how strong your immune system is becoming with a 4 year old helping you to sample every bug possible. :D
