    That's right. It is hidden for video and photos, since album artist is typically related to music files only.

    Oh drag. I made use of that field since I could not add my own. I used it to sort certain types of movies to group them together. Guess I will hold off on the upgrade.

    We have just added Comment as a searchable field for smart playlists, so you could use that. Album artist just did not make sense for video files.

    Our next version we are planning to add a lot more metadata - including the type of video, so that should help.

    As long as I can get the functionality it is cool. What I do is add something like James Bond in the field. Then I can create a smart playlist of all movies with James Bond in the field and sort by creation date. Then I have a list of all my JB movies in one list in the order they were created.

    Understand. We're planning to have a new "Keywords" field for general purpose handling as you describe.

    Just a follow-up. You could use the Genre attribute for "James Bond" and this would allow you to nicely organize your JB movies. So the Genre field for a James Bond movie may contain something like: Drama, Action, James Bond. This has the benefit of listing James Bond under the Genre active playlist for you.
