    If I add a movie from my movie library into the queue, then select the movie from the queue, I have the option to play a trailer for that movie. This would be a great feature to have while browsing the menu library too! I'd love to be able to see trailers directly in the movie library without first adding the movie to the queue, then navigating out to the queue.

This would be awesome - searching for trailers individually is a drag. It'd be really nice to be able to access the trailer right from the movie library!

Even if you didn't add support for finding trailers online via a scraper, it would be nice if you supported playback of a local trailer. I'm not sure what the naming convention should be, but if Boxee sees a file called trailer.xxx or movie.name-trailer.xxx while scanning for the library, it could offer to either play the trailer or the main movie when you select the movie for playback. Some of the XBMC skins support local trailer playback this way, but implement it by actually having a separate "Play Trailer" option you can select in the movie's information screen.

I agree with everybody! When you have a huge library of movies or friends that never heard about a movie, being able to watch the trailer is a really good solution. I think XBMC has this option, and it streams directly from the internet...

One of the most requested feature and it's "Deferred". Not good!

This can't be that hard to implement! It's just a UI change!
