Great functionality, have something like this in my tree.

Your patch duplicates the VideoScanner code, which is a burden for code 
maintenance. Wouldn't it better to:
- make VideoScanner in mythvideo gui (in)dependent depending from where 
it is called
- put VideoScanner in a separate lib, or link against the mythvideo lib 
(the latter being less nice since it's not installed in the default libpath)
