"loading..." (busy/activity/progress indicator)
#21
i know xbmc is currently in a feature freeze, but this seems more like a finishing touch than a new feature imo.

it would be nice if xbmc would display a progress bar or something while loading a file (especially a dvd).  i constantly get about a 4-5 second pause between selecting a movie and the start of playback.  the pause itself isn't much of a problem, but it would seem much more polished if it there was something to indicate that xbmc was wokring and not just hanging.

whenever i have friends and family over and they are playing around with my videos in xbmc they always think something is wrong because they click on a movie and nothing happens for a few.  sometimes they start clicking a bunch of different buttons thinking they have done something wrong and i have seen an instance or two where it caused xbmc to lockup.  i don't fault xbmc for locking up in that scenario, but some sort of "file loading" indicator would all but eliminate the confusion and make things seem more responsive.

just my $0.02!
