Two ways *without* using Jamu:

1. Metadata Options->Reset Metadata

Though this means you have to visit each file in MythVideo in turn,
which could be tedious if you have a large number.

2.  Move the files out of the MythVideo mounts/Storage Groups, scan for
changes, then move back again, scan for changes.

i.e make MythVideo think they have been deleted and then add them back

Assuming all the affected files can be identified with a single shell
glob this is just two "mv" commands regardless of the number of videos.
