I found it already, but thanks-

Because I want it to be in Videos, not in recordings ... I use
recordings list only for fresh things. Everything is being deleted or
saved somewhere else after watching. Example: I recorded the movie
"Mississippi Burning" today and I want to move it to Videos to be able
to access this video with MythVideo ... I also like cover pictures in
MythVideo etc ...

I am going to check the list ... I just started writing a perl package
for archiving videos and converting to some other formats: creating
AVI for  my windows mobile phone, making MKV files with included
subtitles etc ... I have already this stuff, but in a few different
shell scripts.
