I, for one, welcome your new work on MythVideo!

I especially like your Series idea since I have many series and then a
bunch of random stuff (commercials i've saved, random clips of car
stuff, etc) that all gets treated as one now, it would be great if
along with the Series I could also create a "group" to group these
random recordings and have them treated like a "series" (though they
wouldn't really be).

You will not find a lack of ideas for MythVideo (as with MythMusic),
so I suggest going through the wiki wishlist and implement what *you*
would find useful and once your done with that (or sick of it all) see
how many more ideas come out of the wood work =D
