Bright idea: use storage groups for video as well as recordings.
Unbright idea: make storage groups only usable with the Internal
player, when Internal is not ready for primetime.
I know the devs are great, really busy and do it in their spare time.
This is not a criticism, just a minor rantette. I think you'd have to
say many people now prefer h264/mkv video files, and probably also
have many dvd's, either as platters or ripped. Unfortunately Internal
doesn't seem to be reported as working well on either of those
Anyway, 0.22 is a long way from 1.00, so lets encourage the devs to
keep working on this fantastic project!
