Congrats! Sounds great. How about having MythVideo ignore any
extensions that aren't mplayer video accepted? It would certainly
require making a list of acceptable video extensions, but I think
it would be worth it. Sometimes I get a bunch of files in my collection
(for example Thumbs.db from silly XP) that aren't videos and it
clutters up the video lists.
