A dynamically configurable one I do not think so.

Write a playlist file with a unique extension like .pls, put it in
your myth video file tree. It is simply a list of the files you want
to play, like:

#cat /var/lib/mythtv/video/starwars_all.pls



in mythtv setup add a custom filetype as pls and set the player to:

mplayer [your usual options] -playlist %s

rescan your videos with video manager.
