Are there other hiccups other than those two (?) you mention below? 
(encoding adjustments and duplicate videos when next/previous).

Yeah, I guess there's no "one setting to rule them all" regarding 
encoding. At least not if you want to have decent encodings of newer 
videos. One could of course look into creating a "database" that gives 
different encoding for different camera models (based on EXIF-data), but 
it's not on the top of *my* todo-list (mostly because I only shoot 
videos with newer devices).

Ah, yes, this issue. It's probably the most annoying one that I 
currently have. Happens only with movies, and regardless if you go next 
or previous (as long as the next/previous also is a movie). Whenever you 
hit a picture again, it's "reset", so this only happens if/when you have 
more than one movie in a row.

Haven't looked into it, but I guess it's a minor JavaScript-fix.
