I haven't tried this but code in the middle of VideoList::buildFsysList
implies that mythvideo will do what you want. You have to have myth set
to monitor media devices and mythvideo set to browse mode to get that
particular bit of code to run. Presumably you'd have to have
automounting active but if it works with regular DVDs then I assume
you've got that part working OK.
