Ehm, no I believe these are the ones :-)

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).

Off course, one has to start somewhere and obviously any starting point is a good starting point. I thought I’d share some different settings with the list so others might benefit from it.

Whenever you hit a picture again, it's "reset", so this only happens if/when you have more than one movie in a row.

Ah, I haven’t even noticed this yet, I’ve got a bunch of folders with pictures, one with movies and a folder with a large amount of pictures and some movies. I haven’t come across this occasion yet :-)

I’ve noticed that after selecting several movies, the medium sized previews add up, but when you reload the page in your browser (Safari/Firefox/Chrome on a Mac) all previously selected movies disappear (at least visibly, I’d guess also from the DOM tree). My JavaScript skills are very, very rusty (and that’s an understatement). In the upcoming autumn/winter time I might get some polish for JavaScript :-)
