  1. HDR metadata in collection

    I would like to add HDR format as metadata in my collection, like HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision and HLG. If a movie has no HDR it could be set to SDR.

    • Improve PWA

      I'm an Android user and I've often searched for native apps that integrate with Trakt but I always end up returning to the Trakt website itself because it offers more features, is more robust & also is quite quick.

      For a better integration into the OS I always add the website to my homescreen to have the Chrome bar removed and have a separate entry in the Recents with the Trakt icon.

      Now over the last few years/months Google has improved upon this simple add to home screen feature and offered "deeper" integration.

      For example PWAs can show up in…

      • Use rel="next" and rel="prev" for next and previous episodes

        This conforms to web standards. The idea in detail:

        When a user views an episode or a season, he/she can access the next/previous episode by using the arrow keys. I am aware that this is a custom implementation only working on the trakt.tv website.

        There is a web standard defining the "rel" attribute for a elements. This can have many values. The values which are relevant here are "prev", "next" and "up".

        A website can use this attribute in links on a page to denote them as the prev/next/above page respectively.

        For trakt, this would work out as follows: rel='prev'…

        • Alert me to special local screenings of movies on my Watchlist (besides new releases)

          It'd be great to be notified on the Dashboard when there's a special showing happening near me of movies that aren't new releases. There are lots of small, independent theaters that do special screenings, re-releases, or film festivals, or whatever.

          For example, I had Vertigo on my Watchlist, and there was a showing at my local theater, and it would've been great if that appeared on my Dashboard.

          I know getting to that data is difficult, and a lot of it is probably impossible to get in a usable, automatable format, but there are a lot of showtime sites that…

          • Incorrect network data

            It seems TVDB doesn't support multiple networks anymore...
            TMDB does.

            For example
            Netflix picked up two shows

            Money Heist (previously Antena 3)
            Lucifer (previously FOX)

            but all the previous episodes (from the former network) are shown as been aired on Netflix. So at the moment data is incorrect and it changes the values in Year in Review for example.

            • Better YouTube embeds on trakt site

              This concerns the embedded YouTube trailers throughout the site.

              I noticed that those are little to not customized at all. In fact, it is possible to customize how an embedded YouTube video is displayed: https://developers.google.com/youtube/iframe_api_reference

              The thing which bothers me most is when you pause such an embedded video mid-watch, a video rail is shown at the bottom above the scrobble controls. This is not useful to trakt users: They want to watch the trailer, not drift off into YouTube universe.

              The properties which would be cool to be used on trakt:
              * controls=0 (disables additional, unnecessary player controls)
              *…

                • Progress Filters

                  In Progress view, there are options to filter by Completed and Ended. However this filters as Completed OR Ended. I'd like for an option to filter as Completed AND Ended, so any that I have seen all episodes but is an ongoing series is still visible. And any that have ended but I haven't finished watching are visible.

                  Thanks

                  • Easier add to list functionality

                    The list section is great, but lacking a quicker way to add films. An option in the UI at the top of the screen allowing checkboxes to add in bulk to a list would be very beneficial in building quick lists.

                    I am currently trying to find a quicker way of reviewing my films I have seen and building lists for friends as must-watch films, but to add 300 or so movies is very laborious.

                      • Watchlist Default Hidden Items

                        I would like to be able to go to my watchlist with, for example, Unreleased movies already hidden, instead of having to hide them each and every time I go to it. This could be added to the "edit" screen underneath "default sorting". It would be "default hidden items", or "default filters".

                        • Add tmdb movie collections

                          When you lookup a title like
                          When visiting tmdb and looking at a title for instance "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" it is shown it's part of the Star Wars collection.
                          Also when visiting https://www.themoviedb.org/collection/10-star-wars-collection you can easily see which titles are part of this collection. I was thinking it might be handy that we could just click through to a collection and see which titles are part of this collection.

                          • A more personalized and complete list (Like MyAnimeList)

                            What i find really annoying with using trakt, is the way you have to seperate shows or movies into seperate list for your personal "status" on that show (Like i need to make my own list for shows that i have dropped, have on hold or have completed (and you have the default Watchlist for shows you want to watch.))

                            So what i think would immensely help organize our shows/movies, is to have a more "Complete list" of every show/movie and their own "Status", like they do on MyAnimeList. (Or we could just have a new system of "tagging" shows,…

                            • Receiving Timeout when trying to load my Watchlist

                              Over the past couple days I've been unable to load my watchlist. I always get a Cloudflare timout, either Error 504 or 524. I can navigate the rest of the site ok, but I cannot access my watchlist. As a little background, my watchlist has about 2100 items and is always a bit slow to load, but I've never seen these timeouts before.

                              • Hide Seasons (or specific episodes) in the Calendar

                                When you hide a season from your watch next, it still appears on your calendar. If you try and hide it on the calendar, it hides all of the episodes for the show. This would be great for picking up a show partway through a run, or dropping a show if you want to stop watching.

                                • Shows reappearing in Watchlist. Delete all button needed for the watchlist.

                                  Every show in watchlist (260) are reappearing after being deleted. It’s too many and takes too much time to delete them one by one.

                                  Watchlist NEEDS a delete all buttons. Not everyone is capable of performing scripts to mass delete items on a page via a browser console.

                                  I’ve disabled any apps that were syncing with the watchlist. Please fix it!

                                  • Dashboard & Friends activity

                                    One area where trakt currently is severely lacking is keeping up with your "network"/"friends". The number of people you can follow before the dashboard looses it's usefulness is probably a mere 3 users. Capping out at 12 recent items is quite harsh. A single casual user these days can probably nuke that feed in an evening alone (watching, collecting, commenting, lists, etc.). Going above that you can pretty much scratch that area of trakt. If you want to find out what certain people are enjoying you are forced to click on their profile AND "study"

                                      • Custom genres for anime

                                        You previously added some genres based on keywords on trakt. I would like to propose the following to be added to that list, primarily having anime shows in mind:
                                        - Harem (http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2859) (could be handled as romance but shows usually have no "winning" girl)
                                        - Slice of Life (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2864) (imho the biggest one since "drama" doesn't fit at all)
                                        - Mecha (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2638)
                                        - Ecchi (https://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=tag&tagid=2856) (could be handled as "erotic" to cover regular content too)
                                        - Romance (TMDB has yet to create this as a genre for TV shows..)
                                        - Horror (same..)
