This will work but the side effect is you lose whatever descriptions
or posters you may have set up. For a handful of videos it's no big
deal but for dozens or hundreds...
The idea posted earlier about using a sql statement to "move" the
videos in the DB is the cleanest approach. I'm not sure why the OP
doesn't have a videometadata table unless (s)he is checking on a
fresh install which has never had the mythvideo plugin activated.
