Add Director and Sorting

Hi there.

 

This two things were present on old MediaBrowser and would like to see them back.

 

The first is to add the director's name below the title of the movie in the details page. I know that you can find it in the "Cast and Crew" section on the page but usually you have to find it at the end of the cast pushing the "more" button and scrolling down. Too much work.

 

The second is to implement different sorting options in the page of an actor or a director. Actually movies have an alphabetical order wich is not best if you want to follow an actor or a director's career though time spcecially for people with a los lot of work behind their backs,  and there is no way, or at least i coudn't find it, to change it. A realease date order will be much better for that.

 

Thanks

Your first one is already there in several of the apps and should be getting there soon in others as we make the detail screens more consistent.

Great! Will the user be able to click on the director and see other works (similar to how it works in the Cast/Crew list)? Exploring by director is a very common workflow in my household.

In apps designed for point-and-click interfaces, I would imagine, yes.  Perhaps also in the TV ones at some point too but discovering the fact that you can do that can be a bit more tricky when you have to navigate to it via a remote control.

Thanks ebr.

 

What Tremas says is precisely what i use to use it for :)

 

I use the Android and both Emby Theater clients so I'll wait for it.

 

Any chance to see the sorting thing implemented?

​The overall request may be similar to the one I started to separate cast and crew here:

Maybe we need to combine them along with this request as they are all different solutions to a similar root cause of the director/crew being hard to discover:
