Movie Collector (Windows)

v23.1: Movie trailers now appear as clickable thumbnails

November 25th, 2022

Another update for your Movie Collector software, that could make using the software quite a bit faster and more responsive!

In this update, we are changing the way Youtube trailer videos are shown in the details panel. Instead of an embedded YouTube player (which can be very slow to load), the trailers are displayed as a list of video thumbnails and title. Just click to open the video on the Youtube site.

This new setup has the following advantages:

  • Browsing through your movies is a lot faster now.

    No more annoying “hangs” while the Youtube video loads.
  • It resolves the problem of many videos not being “allowed” to be embedded nowadays.
  • Clicking a trailer will now always open it in your default browser!

    (previously it always opened in Internet Explorer)

Prefer the trailer videos to be embedded?

Wanna go back to having playable trailer videos embedded inside the details area?
Just use the new setting that can be found under “Tools > Options > Customization”, at the bottom:


  • Statistics weren’t showing correctly in Light/System skin
  • Update IMDb rating/votes report: The votes column did not show the right number
  • An access violation error could occur when using Update from Core on a box set
