Video (Browser|Gallery|List) browses files
If set, this will cause the Video (Browser|Gallery|List) screen to show 
all relevant files below the MythVideo starting directory whether they 
have been scanned or not.

Video List Loads Video Meta Data
If set along with Browse Files, this will cause the Video List to load 
any known video meta data from the database. Turning this off can 
greatly speed up how long it takes to load the Video List tree

No way to do that.
