Switch UI to something like Plex

The video posters can be shown in a "list" and scrolled through with arrow keys. Jumping to video titles by the first letter.
This implies grabbing more data to store in the video db.

This will NOT be done in nodejs, despite how "easy" it might seem to implement. I'd rather stick to GTK/Cairo, perhaps building a library for display functions like this.
The UI should look like Plex's where you show all video images to start, sorted alphabetically. Then allow sorting by Genre or some other field in the db. I also need a search function that can be navigated to or easily "popped up". Perhaps just typing will cause a filtering of the display.
For movies we show by movie title. For TV shows we show by show title only (not by episode). Once the show is selected then we show episodes by title, either in a list (easier to read on a small screen) or with screen caps of the episode (use ffmpeg to grab and cache those).
In any case I'll probably need a sorted list of titles that points back to the real db.
