  1. Split time watched across days

    Over the last few months, I noticed that I've become really obsessed with finishing watching things before midnight local time to avoid messing up my dashboard graph with stats that appear on the "wrong day".

    It occurred to me tonight, after yet another movie finished just after midnight, that actually, software can solve this problem.

    I propose that Trakt take the timestamp and duration of each item played into account when generating graphs, such that if (as happened tonight) I finish a 126-minute movie at 0:03, 123 of those minutes still appear in the graph for the previous day, and…

    • 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.

      • Restart TV Show Progress While Keeping Episode Watch Count

        This problem mainly arose with the most recent 2.0 update to the trakt addon in XBMC, I love the two way syncing system however, when I want to rewatch a tv series I can't make use of the XBMC "watched" feature which is a pain. This happens because if I mark the tv series as unwatched (to start tracking my XBMC progress again) it will automatically mark it as seen upon next load.

        I often watch videos on different systems so the two way syncing is like an angel from heaven, however I think that some sort of system on…

        • Let us choose if we saw the 'regular version' or the Director's Cut of a movie.

          There are movies where the Directors Cut signifcantly changes the movie. Sometimes I saw both versions, sometimes only the DC. I'd like to add which one I saw.

          • Create parent shows

            It would be great to have a parent show that includes all seasons and episodes of its children shows.

            For example a CSI parent show that would have all episodes for CSI Las Vegas, Miami and New York under one chronological list. I see all theses shows as one and would like to know what the next chronological episode is, and how many episodes are left in the group. Other examples would be NCIS, NCIS LA, NCIS NO, and The CW D.C., Arrow, Flash Super Gil, Etc.

            • Ability to apply a dark theme across the entire website?

              It would be really amazing if you could make a dark version of the website. I suffer from Horton's (also known as cluster headache) and while I love the site and use it practically every day, it can sometimes be pretty painful, because of its brightness.

              But even people without any similar conditions could benefit from it, seeing as a high-contrast, dark theme would reduce eye strain.

              I wouldn't mind if you made various other themes, offered up 1 for free, so regular users could see what it does, and then make the rest a VIP feature. Or do what…

              • Embedded Preview Trailers For Movies and TV Shows

                When browsing the dashboard or home page on trakt, I occasionally find some interesting movies or TV shows that I would like to preview.

                I thought it would be neat and convenient if a user can hover over a poster of a movie or TV show, and be able to view a trailer straight from trakt without having to search for it on youtube or through some other media source. Bascially if a user, hovers over the poster and clicks play, a pop out embedded video of the trailer would start playing.

                • Make 'Data refresh' available for everyone (improves it for everyone ;)

                  Hi,

                  so I changed some shows in TMDB. I guess I could now manually refresh it in trakt. Wouldn't it make sense to allow this for everyone? Currently, I would have to inform you (or support) and they do it manually... if you could just tell all wrong show info complainers to go to TMDB, fix it and they just hit refresh when done, you will never have to fix something manually ;)

                  thanks,
                  chris

                  • Movie language matching with "original title"

                    After coming by this too often:
                    Please rely on the original title language from TMDB only as a fallback. It's wrong on tons of foreign movies due to the fact that the field was added just over a year ago.

                    I would take the language field as the default and only if multiple languages are found do a comparison with the "original title". Wouldn't hurt to display all of them anyways though ;).

                    • "What to watch next" roulette.

                      "What to watch next" roulette.
                      A feature that picks something at random from your watchlist. This would be great as I have A LOT of movies to watch and have trouble deciding which to watch. Sort of like "shuffle" with songs except it's with items in your watchlist.

                      • Refresh on dashboard and progress pages.

                        It would be cool if you didn't have to refresh the page after ticking off a episode on the 'on deck to watch' widget and progress page, instead making the episode box refresh. This allows the whole process of checking off shows the be seamless.

                        Cheers!

                            In profile we have "Favorite movies" and "Favorite TV shows" that show things according to the option, for example I use "Random rated 10" and shows all movies that I rated 10. Would be nice if I could choose my real favorite movie and tv show independent of my ratings.

                            ps: I'm the worst explaining things and sorry about my english I'm brazilian.

                              Like on the Website MyAnimeList. When visting the history page of someone elses profile it would be cool to see a little statistics on top which shows how many shows/movies you both watched or rated the same.

                              • Lists Intersections

                                Hello,
                                I would find it very useful if I could hide shows/movies which are (or are not) on other of my lists.
                                For example, I have an "Oscar Race" list with all of the contenders for the Oscars 2017, and once the nominations are announced I could quickly check which ones did or didn't make the cut, just by choosing to hide the ones which were on the actual "Oscars 2017" list.
                                This would also be helpful for someone who has lists based on mood, and could see in the "Feel-good" list which are also on the "Network Television" list…

                                • Rotten Tomatoes score

                                  I know this has been suggested (and declined) before, but adding Rotten Tomatoes rating would be great.

                                  I know Trakt already has user ratings (I've been rating my watched titles myself) but it would still be nice to compare the community ratings with the critic's from Rotten Tomatoes.

                                  It has an API - as opposed to IMDb, for instance - so it might be possible.

                                  • 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...

                                    Basically, it would be great if the filtering…

                                    • Mutually Exclusive Lists

                                      Allow certain personal lists to be marked as mutually exclusive, meaning that if i add an item to such a list, it should automatically be removed from any other mutually exclusive list.

                                      • Actor & Crew for TV shows on season or episode level

                                        Via TMDB I can enter actors and crew on season and episode level. Via trakt I can only see the actors from the latest season.

                                        This means that I cannot search on actors / crew that has participated to an episode or season of a TV show (except if they participated in the latest season).

                                        This is inaccurate. For example: You have a TV show with a main character during 9 of the 10 seasons. Because the main character is replaced during the latest season, this actor is not displayed via Trakt (because Trakt only displays actors from the latest…

                                        • Popular Actors, Directors and other Cast.

                                          Just how you can sort for the most popular television shows and movies, it would be nice to also bring up the most popular actors, directors and other cast members.
