The 'videometadata' table contains all information regarding videos
stored in MythVideo.  However, be sure to note that this table
references all of the filenames and coverfiles by absolute paths.
i.e. you would either have to maintain the same directory structure or
re-write the filenames/coverfile paths in the database.
