    I dont see why not.

    Just dont ask me how its done Im no coder.
    I would really like to see this happen then the kids would know what movie they want rather than resetting the movie a couple times.

    i'm sure this is possible, but even if mplayer_ce were to implement it, it would have to be up to you to provide the cover art, and rename them to match the name of your video file, and have them saved in the right location on the drive... all in all, a lot of work

    my suggestion... maintain a database on your pc using a program like emdb, it can add movies + info + cover art from imdb'd database. Pick your movie using this, then just launch the title with mplayer

    i recommend a wd tv. it's a cool little device that plays 1080p/5.1 stuff from a usb drive. and its only $60. the firmware is GPL, so it is really easy to customize the little guy. i got mine set up with my network so it plays media from my pc with a samba share. it also shows imdb info and box art.

    no, it isn't quite as sexy as wiiflow. but it is 1080p. i will gladly trade in the coverflow crap for the ability to play blueray rips from my pc.

    And I would gladly trade the coverflow for my ps3 and its ability to play 1080p.
