If you look at the info on a video and it says you've seen it 5 times does
that mean you watched it last week or not? I decided to keep a last played
date (which is MythMusic also does) because with a date you don't have to
remember how many times you've seen a video in the past or compare with
other videos, you can just instantly tell if it's the one you want.
My code is rather rough though and it's against 0.21 fixes. It'll take me a
while to get a dev system setup and the code cleaned up for a patch.
