The video backdrops feature is pretty nifty. :) Sometimes I have multiple video backdrops, and it has occurred to me that it could be nice (on a per-backdrops-folder basis) if there were a way (perhaps through special filenaming?) to designate:

  1. that only a configured number of backdrop videos should play;
  2. and that whatever that number is, the videos should be randomly selected from the total amount from within the backdrops folder.

For example, perhaps with one item (movie, tv season, etc.) I have 3 video backdrops and I only want 1 to be randomly selected and played. But for another item maybe I have 5 video backdrops and so I decide I want 2 to be randomly selected and played.
