I have a fairly large movie collection (5k+) starting with films from the 1920's and in the absence of "smart" playlists how about a filter by decade option? Filtering by year works, but if I want to watch something from say the 1950's I have to start navigating from the 1930's and work my up to the 1950's which is quite a few number of pages. Another option might be to have Years running vertically much like the alphabet when viewing by title.

Just wanted to add my support for this feature. We switched from Plex to Emby and my wife really misses this option. Thanks!

These plugin are very impressive, wish I had the brains, but think I'd prefer the years filter to be replaced with a decades filter with supplemental years sub filters.

I remember DECADES being an option years ago when it was still Media Browser. It was in the options tabs when you entered your MOVIES library next to GENRE. Someone had also made up a nice set of DECADES fanart. Would be nice to see it return in a future update.
