Video tab needs work

"Video" tab needs to be more like "Audio" tab. With different window/pane/column options etc. I'm currently importing all of my video media into Winamp and all I can work with is this single playlist format. I'd really love to see large icons, like DVD cover artwork for films/TV shows if possible. Also, needs more in-depth column selctions - not sure if this is an issue with Windows lacking the property details (metadata) for inputting "Film title" or "Show title" along with "Episode title" rather than using "Artist" and "Album" to properly organize a video library. Also unlike in the Audio tab, how artists are alphabetically listed when their band name begins with determiners like "The" or "A" eg. The Beatles are listed with other artists beginning with letter 'B', this doesn't seem to be the case in the Video tab playlist.
I'm just a perfectionist that has long been waiting to organize my media library... The right way. Winamp has always been my favorite for this, just wish it still had that Gracenote feature to put in to use.

For a media library it's about using the best tool for each job. For me that is Winamp for audio and Kodi for video.

The video playback function in Winamp is best considered a convenience thing. I subscribe to podcasts in Winamp and a couple of them come in video form, so it's nice to be able to play them there in Winamp, but that's pretty much all I use it for.

The video tab is just to show the video. The video files will show up on the ML tab. I don't see what the problem is?

Indeed consider video playback a convenience in Winamp, not a preference.

You can make your own.
Right-click on Local Library, and then chose Add Smart View.
Configure to your liking.

Even with the improvements you want it is still lacking the control you get with something like the Media Player Classic branches, or the bloatfest VLC.
My DVD rips include chapter marks and often 2 subtitles and audio tracks. Winamp can't handle the standard extras.

Mashups ? Smells like a lot of "Fishy Business" to me.

Perhaps they want a "video pane" in the ML panes? Or a pop out video window?

But I agree, winamp is not something I use for video.

when you click on the default ML section for video it is a 1 pane list.
A throwback to a time before people amassed lots of videos..... and a time before they then gave all that up for streaming (then cry when the net dies).

It is just a "smart view", so a new default wouldn't be too hard for a next upda.... oh.
DIY time, until Winamp 6

Right, I agree, but I'm just guessing they want a pane where the playback can be previewed in? But whatever it might be, i set video to off in prefs.
