This is something that we on the Shotwell team discussed for more than
a few minutes. ;-) The rationale for including "Play Video" in the
Photos menu even on the "Photos" page and graying it out is as
follows. On all pages that contain mixed media types (e.g., tag and
event pages) "Play Video" always appears in the "Photos" menu. That
may not be the best place for it (and indeed, it's not the most
discoverable thing -- an item pertaining to videos in the "Photos"
menu -- go figure), but that's where its ended up. Hence, because it's
not so easily discoverable, we wanted it to appear (albeit sometimes
grayed out) on all media pages, even those containing exclusively
photos, to help users learn where it is.
Nevertheless, you've brought up a good point and I think we should
think about it. I've opened a ticket that addresses this and some
other media-type related menu issues here:
