Going back to the MythNews topic.  The support in MythNews doesn't 
require  much else except the title for displaying enclosures.  The 
point I was making earlier is that your efforts are great and would be 
better appreciated by extending MythNews to support the management of 
videos features you've added because the RSS display and management of 
feeds is already there and ready to go.
