More udpates (layout and bookmarklet)

I have updated the video bookmarklet so that users can select from multiple videos on one page. I personally love this feature, because websites especially blogs will have multiple videos on a page.

I also cleaned up the layout for the gallery. I know it is really boring, but I really like layouts with minimum graphics. Sites like reply mostly on css to get the job done. Restricting the used of graphics keeps the page size small, less work for my server and faster page loading.

If you are using one channel to organize your videos (Favorites for example), your gallery's homepage will now display all the videos in the channel, instead of listing the channel itself. When a user creates an additional channel, the gallery homepage will revert back to displaying all the channels.

On my todo list is the add logic to resize the thumbnails to a standard size (140 x 110). Currently I save the thumbnails as is because I was not sure on what size I was going to stick with.
