Sorry, this is not planned.
My personal opinion about this: Other media like images or movies may distract the learner from the text.

I have been thinking of adding support for movies to LWT. I know that we are free to fork the project, but I don't want to implement something that is planned in the original LWT. Now that I know that movies won't be in LWT I think I will get on with implementing it.

In detail, the characters recognized in words are the following ranges:
؀-ۿ   \x{0600}-\x{06FF}
ݐ-ݭ   \x{0750}-\x{076D}
ﭐ-﷼   \x{FB50}-\x{FDFC}
ﹰ-ﻼ   \x{FE70}-\x{FEFC}

Please look at these lists to see all characters in these 4 ranges:
Overview
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_alphabet
In detail:
http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0600.pdf
http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0750.pdf
http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/UFB50.pdf
http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/UFE70.pdf

If you want to remove characters from these 4 ranges, you have to modify them so that
the unwanted characters
aren't anymore in these ranges.

Ex.: Instead of specifying ranges A-I, you can also specify a string of allowed
characters, like: ABCDEFGHI.


Ok thank you, that makes a lot more sense now! I will see if I can get it to work like
I want.

You are very welcome to do so - even if you do it just for you personally and not want to publish it.

It would be great if you would post your final (best) language settings for Arabic here and/or in the language
settings spreadsheet http://bit.ly/xwF3EJ

Thank you!

I've been trying to use this online Pashto dictionary in LWT but haven't been having much luck. Is there a specific
way that I need to be formatting the URL when I set it as a dictionary in LWT?

The search term is not part of the dictionary URI, so it cannot be used automatically within LWT.
You can use it manually via copy & paste in a separate window.

It is a very nice tool indeed and I'm going to use it while reading new texts.
However, one feature that it lacks for me at the moment (or I just haven't discovered how to cope with this yet) is linking several words together - that is, different verb, noun, etc. forms to their origin. For example: different forms of German adjective with endings: -e -er -er -en could be linked to their base form and they all would be updated simultaneously, rather than each one as another word.
