  1. Add YouTube video links to episodes

    A good amount of shows have canonical versions of their episodes uploaded on YouTube.

    It'd be useful if there was a way to "link" episodes with those specific YouTube videos.

    This unique video ID (the part after /watch?v=) would ideally be exposed through the backend for API clients. As for the website, instead of embedding the video, a simple link would be fine since I don't think you guys are interested in turning Trakt into a viewing platform.

    The reason I'm interested in this is, it's always been a hassle to keep track of your subscriptions and the content you…

    • Allow unknown watching date

      i'm a Trakt noob. when my favorite iPhone app completely shifted over to using Trakt for their backend, i had to create a Trakt account if i wanted to continue using it. so i did.

      recently i learned that the Trakt website lets you also track Movie's & such too (yes, i had not visited the actual website until recently); so i began to explore the site & thought i'd start filling in what i've seen & wanna see etc.

      i was astonished to find that i could NOT add any movies to the "History" & "Collection" areas without providing…

        Your points make sense, but as before this is still not something we plan on supporting. I’ll move this to researching, but I don’t anticipate changing this in the near term.

      • Button report

        I believe that a button for reporting erroneous duplicate or registered titles would be good! For I have seen several series registered as movies and personal giving checkin anyway. And with the button would be easier to report, rather than being created topic here.

        • Most Watched boxes customizable

          During my childhood I watched many animes such as Dragon Ball Z.
          If I check-in the seasons the TV Show becomes my most watched TV Show by far.
          Therefore this will never change since it has over 200 episodes and no new TV Shows today will have that much (I think)
          I would like to be able to add this TV Show in my watched list but don't think having it as my most watched TV show is really relevant.
          This applies for movies too.

          Suggestions

          - Allow in settings profile section to choose if Most Watched boxes should refer…

          • Sort shows by number of episodes left in current season

            I would like to not only be able to sort shows by remaining runtime or total number of episodes left, but also by how many episodes remain in the season I can currently watching.

            For instance, if I just watched Arrow Season 2, Episode 21, and last night I watched Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 15, it would be nice to sort by "episodes remaining in current season" to see that I only have 1 episode of Walking Dead left vs. 2 episodes of Arrow left, so I could finish one season of one show tonight.

            • Suggestion : Hide/Show option on tv show main page

              Hi,

              The idea would be to have two options on each tv show main page to see and handle the "Hide/Display" options for this show (in Calendar or progress page)

              Just a thought, I think it would be nice.

              • Calendar - Hide Watchlist

                This idea was declined in November 2013 as "Not planned right now" so 3 years later maybe it could pass ?

                http://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/3575835-calendar-hide-watchlist

                Every time I add a TV Show on my watchlist I have to add it to my calendar's hidden items.

                But I could understand why this idea isn't approved : Movies watchlisted have their importance in the calendar.

                So why not only allow to hide Watchlisted Tv Shows from Calendar ? We can currently hide special episodes.

                • Group list items by genre or year or other fields

                  Hi Justin,

                  I love the genre filters in collections and history, would be nice if there was like a submenu in Hide button for genres, if possible.

                  If not, it would be great (if possible) to add an option to group a list items by their type (tv/movie) or genre or year... etc, in the same way that history/collection item are grouped by days, using the separators.

                  Would be really helpful with mixed lists and watchlists. Please and thank you.

                  (also would be great if the sort options apply to each group's items, but I'm trying to not be greedy

                  • Wanted (in collection) / Wishlist

                    As many of us are indeed collectors, also focusing on collection automation within trakt.tv, people may want to differentiate further between stuff they like to watch (Watchlist) and what they actually like to collect (Wishlist - as seen and implemented in apps such as Movist)

                    Having a separate smart Wishlist, which is updated automatically as soon as items getting collected, may give us the best of two worlds, in addition reducing the management impact of the given Watchlist especially when it comes to bigger collections.

                    • alexa

                      There's a great deal of interest in controlling Kodi and apps like it using Alexa, however to make that work, the app needs a remote server that can connect to Alexa's cloud servers. At present, the only way to set this up is using an elaborate server system, like this: http://www.howtogeek.com/249336/how-to-control-your-kodi-media-center-with-an-amazon-echo/

                      It seems to me that Trakt already has almost all the tools to make this work without needing an elaborate setup. You have the library of the Kodi user. You have a connection from Kodi to the internet. What you still need is a way to send commands to…

                      • Add "where" and "with" fields

                        It would be nice to be able to indicate where and with who has been seen a particular movie/episode. In particular:

                        [1] Every "watch date" should have its "where" and "with".
                        [2] In the "where" field I can write what I want.
                        [3] In the "with" field I can write what I want or add a trakt user.
                        [4] If in the "where" field I enter "Sunshine Cinema", this place is automatically saved in a specific "Places" page, in which I can add/delete/edit all the places.
                        [5] The places in the "Places" page are automatically suggested when I set the…

                        • Same display/sort options for all pages

                          Can we please have the same display/sort options for all pages??

                          A few examples of what I mean.

                          - Be able to view a personal list by "last watched"

                          - On the main page lists Trending/Popular/Played etc. Be able to hide as well as fade

                          - after searching be able to use the filters to sort by most popular/Plays/date etc.

                          - be able to reverse the sorting of all sort options, ie. Progress page cannot have "recently watched" reversed. Which would be great to see what I haven't watched for a while...

                              It would be cool to have, in the Watched Progress & On Deck, the option to sort by "Next episode to air", so that one can easily see which series needs to be caught up on the fastest.

                                • Network activity - show friend's rating of item

                                  Hi,

                                  Network Activity panel on dashboard should show rating of item, that my friend watched/collected (of course his rating and only when item was rated).

                                  It shouldn't be major change, but when I see that my friend watched movie, I would like to know his rating without visiting his (or movie) page.

                                  I guess it could be mentioned by someone somewhere, but I can't find it, so I've decided to post it as new idea (if it's duplicate - sorry)

                                  • Recently Viewed (actors)

                                    Being quite fond of imdb's feature "Recently viewed" which is keeping track of recently visited actors pages, I wonder if something like this is possible and of course desirable within trakt.tv.

                                    Together with https://support.trakt.tv/forums/188762-general/suggestions/4215471-recent-visitors-to-your-profile this could add a new information angle and later on help finding trakt buddies of similar taste.

                                    • Co-productions ?

                                      Hi,

                                      The countries involved in a tv show or movie is a really interesting detail.

                                      Tmdb has this info under "Production info" > "Production countries"
                                      Could you import it ?

                                      Thanks

                                        • Differentiate between ep, season and show

                                          In collection (trakt.tv/users/user/collection), maybe the overview would be better if it automatically shows a tv- series as one season if all episodes in said season has been collected. Same if all seasons in one series have been collected.

                                          As it is right now, it will show every episode (in All Types). The episodes clutter the view;

                                          If I own a DVD with season 1 of Breaking Bad, I do not want this listed as seven individual units, but rather one unit, because it is one season on one DVD.

                                            Planning to look into this and maybe add a setting to group things with the same season and date. For now, you can also filter by shows which will group them together.
