Did a transcode to indexed JPEG's?  :)

You'll want to go into the Video Manager.  If the JPEG's are gone but
were previously in the DB, the Video Manager will prompt you, asking
whether you'd like to remove the entry from the DB.  If so, select "Yes
to all" (or whatever the exact wording is) and it will clean up your DB.
