Yes, this is what I've been doing...

Can you think of any possible reason why the videos that are in this
directory would not appear within the Video Manager, aside from having
MythVideo not set to look in the right folder? I've setup MythVideo's
"directory for holding video files" setting...

I'm starting to think that this directory is a directory on the
Frontend? Since I store my video files on the backend, is there anyway
to specify a directory on the Backend, if I'm correct here?
