I don't know if you mean adding a link to a video file for the movies trailer or not, so what I am about to say might be off topic, but I would when a profile has "Trailers" checked off, it would be nice to have a list of WHAT trailers are there.  Often it is not even the one for the move in question.

There are alreay some skins available out there which allow you to "link" trailers to the profile.  'Mithirandir' and 'Roolku' come to mind.

Alternatley, you can do it using the notes field of the default skin.

I agree 100%.  We should have the ability to list ALL of the special features on the DVD.  Rather than a simple checkbox that says "Commentary", I would like to know how many commentaries and who is on them.  Instead of a checkbox for "Featurettes", how about a complete list with description and running times?  Same goes for all of the other features.

Hopefully this can be implemented one day...

I wish we had a way to at least differentiate between trailers for the movie on the disc and trailers for other things. The only trailers I consider a 'feature' are those for the film on the disc or trailer collections that might be related to an actor or crew member on the disc.

I'm tracking this with tags since the checkbox for 'trailers' tells me nothing that I care to know.

I think having the ability to describe the trailers, or for that matter specific descriptions of Special Features, is by far more useful than being able to link to trailers Online. Trailer links have a habit of disappearing in due time

I suppose you could link to the trailers on-line, but all of mine reside on my hard drive, so I don't have to worry about a link breaking.

In my personal opinion.. I agree... I would rather be able to have description for the extras then this. After all... this is doable now by simply turning on the HTML for the notes section and linking to them there. Granted it isn't shared... but as skip said if we used links to online they would eventually disappear anyway.
