I understand and thanks for the explanation. It is not a big deal, as
I already shared it via samba.

Videos and music are at first sight frontend based, because they can
only be managed through frontend plugins. But, they are actually not
frontend/host based, because every frontend can  see/delete videos
from the other frontend. It is somehow not consistent, but the reason
is probably laying in "very early days of Myth development".
