General

Language
Select your countrycode here. If your language isn't available translate the english file in the language directory and send it to me.
Template
This sets the design to use. Each template can have multiple styles (color schemes). Just try them and use the one you like most :-)
List columns
This is currently only used in the 'modern' template. It defines how many columns are used to show the browsing list. If set to 1 it shows a list like the default template.
Cast columns
This defines how many columns are used to display the cast list in a movies detail view. It depends on your screen resolution and the chosen template how much space you have.
Automatic DiskID
VideoDB uses a DiskID to identify disks. This ID is different from the VideoID which is assigned to every video automagically. This allows you to have multiple videos on a single disk and let them become all unavailable when you lend the disk to someone.
However if you don't have a fancy namingscheme for your disks and just want to number them, VideoDB can suggest an ID when adding a new video by increasing a number. If you want this enable this option.
Order by DiskID
If you enable this parameter the list of movies in the "all" view will be ordered by DiskID instead of the video titles.
Default mediatype
Select which mediatype should be suggested when adding a new video
Default language
This is different from the language setting above. This is the language that will be filled in on default when you add a new video. Leave it blank if you don't like this.
Default filter
This is the page that will be opened when you start VideoDB.
Show TV Episodes
If you want TV Episodes to be included in the browse view by default enable this option.
New Movies
You can enter the number of movies shown on the "new" filter.
Maximum items per page
Number of items to display on each page. Use 0 or leave empty to disable pagination.
Language flags







Here you can select the flags which should be available as JavaScript buttons in the edit form for quick language selection.
No more than five should be selected.
Remove Articles
If selected, articles are stripped from added movies, e.g. The Angel is stored as Angel, The.
Adult Genres
Movies in the genres you select here will only be visible to users with 'adult' permissions. Hold down the CTRL-key to select multiple genres. (Only applies when multiuser support is enabled)
Show tools
The tools menu will show the contents of the contrib directory. Contents of the contrib directory are useful contributions to videoDB, but not fully tested and might be hazardous to security.

Network and Security

Local network
Here you can define your local network. Users who access VideoDB from somewhere else can not edit the data anymore. This is a regular expression so you may even give some complicated term here.

Examples:
^192\.168\.1\. allows 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.254
^(192\.168\.1\.|127\.0\.0\.1$) the same as above plus localhost
^192\.168\.1\.22$ allows IP 192.168.1.22 only
^(192\.168\.1\.22|127\.0\.0\.1)$ the same as above plus localhost
leaving it blank allows everyone

Attention: If you make a mistake here you will lock out your self from the config page!

IMDB Browser
This allows you to browse the IMDB through VideoDB and add movies directly from within their site.
Cache expiry
VideoDB can cache external queries to avoid unnecessary, time consuming requests and lessen the load on the external (e.g. IMDB) servers. Use this setting to define the maximum age of local documents (in seconds). Defaults to 5 days.
Actor thumbnails
This tries to find a tiny image for each actor from the cast and to display it beside the actors name.
Actor thumbnail retry
This defines when to retry to load actor thumbnails that weren't found last time (in seconds). Defaults to 3 weeks.
