No, you don't get it, I was not happy with that solution. We hate the
interface to Videos, so I have hacked a system that makes Videos show
up in the Recordings screen, as it's more intuitive to use, and better
organized for our usage, and works well enough, with the occasional
manual tweaking required.
For our use case, this works. For your use case, it doesn't work. Your
use case isn't superior to mine, nor is mine to yours, just different,
I don't get why I need to be forced to use your scenario, especially
if there is a potential solution that can fit both use cases.
Again, I'm not sure why we are arguing about this, and why people have
such a vehement opinion about it, nothing has been changed, and
nothing has even formally been proposed, other than an idea floated by
Michael Dean. I'm sure he's chuckling away somewhere... :)
