Thanks for the pointers. I think i found what I am looking for in the
video-ui.xml in the defualt-wide directory. This the section I think
controls the Video List display.
<window name="tree">
<textarea name="breadcrumbs" from="basetextarea">
<area>50,20,1180,40</area>
<font>basemedium</font>
</textarea>

<buttontree name="videos">
<area>40,50,1200,310</area>
<numlists>3</numlists>
<spacing>10</spacing>
<buttonlist name="listtemplate" from="basebuttonlist" />
</buttontree>

<textarea name="title" from="basetextarea">
<area>40,400,1200,40</area>
<font>baselarge</font>
</textarea>

<textarea name="s##e##" from="basetextarea">
<area>50,380,400,30</area>
<font>basemedium</font>
</textarea>

<textarea name="subtitle" from="basetextarea">
<area>50,420,400,30</area>
<font>basemedium</font>
</textarea>

Anyone know what is going on here? I was looking for something to the
effect of "Title #x# - Subtitle" in the top right and
"Title"
"Subtile"
in the bottom left.

What does the numbers in the <area> represents?
