Dave Richardson,
    Jamu does not processes any multi-part video files (e.g. VOB).
See: #2 http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Jamu#Jamu_limitations

If you had the following MythVideo paths:


"movie.avi" would be processed correctly but "VTS_01_01.VOB" and 
"VTS_01_02.VOB" would be processed as two individual video files. If you 
have many VIDEO_TS directories with *.VOB files then do one of the 
1) Do not use Jamu (jamu is an optional alternative to the official 
MythVideo meta data download method)
2) Turn your VIDEO_TS into a single iso file
3) Convert the Video_TS into a mkv file

I have not done either #2 or #3 myself but I have read enough to believe 
that it can be done. Be aware that iso files will not play if they are 
in a video storage group, but they will play if they are in a local FE 
video path. Check for more details in the mailing archives.

A few days ago a bug was reported that Jamu -MJ (janitor) option was 
removing the image files for movies in a "VIDEO_TS" directory. That has 
been fixed and the patch will be released in the next day or two.
