Any thought of being able to display the inside cover images for those multi-disc cases that actually had a separate section for each disc?

I don't know if the inside image was different across the various editions of the same movie, but in many cases the inside image added to the visual experience (i.e. inside cover for Mission Impossible). Being able to show what all came in a Box Set, Collectors Edition, etc. would be cool as well...
...the Uncut & Special Edition of Terminator 2 came with a memo from James Cameron explain the additional scenes in the uncut version
...the Masterpiece edition of the Lion King came with six lithographs (ever wonder if the same 6-lithographs were used, or not?)

Hello!

That would be nice indeed (in a way Discogs.com does it for example) but there are a few issues:

  • Cover size to be backup'ed daily already stands at 3.5GB today and climbing with the back covers submissions
  • Back cover was already a trick (only Front cover was initially designed for)
  • It could be turned into a slide show but the information from the author couldn't today be retained outside (it would require a new database table)

My next focus for coding (apart from upgrading to Debian 8) will be:

  • Adding the Dolby/DTS Trailer information for AC3 and DTS releases
  • Adding the SACD/HDDVD/DTS CD section -- I really want to put my collection up there, Discogs isn't very good with them
  • Adding all formats to the LDDb Shops

Eventually we can revisit the cover slide shows at that time :-)

And we did!

Example: click on the cover picture of Life and Death of the Hollywood Kid (1994) [ML 691]
