Then put the Video Gallery button where you want it. BTW
there is no reason you can't have the same button in two
places other than it's bad style but if you want that one button by itself
higher up in the menus, you could do that.

I tried to have this in the xml file:

     <text>Video Gallery</text>
     <text lang="FR">Gallerie vidéo</text>
     <text lang="DE">Galerie</text>
     <text lang="SI">Galerija filmov</text>
     <text lang="FI">Videogalleria</text>
     <text lang="DK">Film Galleri</text>
     <text lang="SV">Filmgalleri</text>
     <text lang="PT">Galeria de Filmes</text>
     <text lang="ES">Galería</text>
     <text lang="ET">Filmide galerii</text>
     <text lang="RU">??????? ???????</text>

---That's the same code from the videomenu.xml file, but it didn't work, so
at the moment I'm stuck with just going to the video menu with the 4 default
options. When you press ok or enter on that menu item, nothing happens. Any
ideas? Try for yourself and see if you can get it working.
