Strange. did you try to do the same thing in videogalery or in videotree 
  (with the option "show new file" disabled) ?

Yes, i would like to do something like that. probalbly when you insert 
the first time the media, and allow to modify this tag in editmetadata.
somebody tell me that they used "book" to store cd like me then i was 
thinking to add an entry in video setting wich is a pattern. then for me 
i can put "Page %1" then when you insert a media you could select Page 
1, page 2, .... Page n, or enter a name yourself.

I will retry videobrowser to find what is wrong.
