As I said in the other post, i do this and it works great.
I keep in mind that video can be store on the default location, on a 
CD/DVD or on a usb drive (when mediamonitor will alow it)

this feature need mediamonitor, and work even if you have more than one 
cd/dvd drive (i think i have only one ;-))

I hope to terminate this patch a t the end of this week.
