Tried to find a way around Moviesheet with the Moviesheet as a Thumbnail. (and without having to use the dummy file method)
I created a method of having a Moviesheet + Thumbnail gets displayed at the bottom of the screen. (bonus… has a ‘Reflection’ as well)
Also, all files eg. Movie.mkv Movie.jpg Movie.xml are contained in one MAIN folder. No subfolders are used with the method. (It is a simple Navigate --> Click --> Play Movie)
This is NOT a ‘Covertrickle’ method !
This method only requires you to create ONE sheet whenever you want to add a new movie.
(And also if you delete a movie, everything is still in correct alphabetical order.)
The Moviesheet in this Demonstration is a small resolution… but the navigation is fairly quick.

I did experiment with Larger Resolutions, but unfortunatly the navigation became horribly slow (unworkable)
This Method can also be applied to wall sheets,wide thumbs etc… with carefull design and layout.
I can post a Visual Explaination of how i achieved this. One hint: i got the idea from “Photo View” and some of its code.
This Gallery view is a Work In Progess (Thumbnail spacing needs alginment tweaks, ‘Watched’ and ‘Favourite’ Overlays need to coded and graphics designed)
Oh, visuals inspired by “Xperience”
