imdb-bulk-update.pl will update the database AND fetch info from imdb in
relation to the whole or parts of your database.

If you don't want the imdb bits, there may be a command line switch so
that it JUST updates the database, or you can read the script and come up
with your own solution (if you can read/write perl!)

Basically a script needs to look through everything in your videos
director(y|ies), isolate the files that are movies (as opposed to
pictures, text files etc), look up the videometadata table to see if the
file is already in the database, and if it isn't use SQL to insert a row
in the videometadata table.
