mythutil --scanvideos inserts full path of files breaking mythweb

Cc: Ticket locked: no


When I run mythutil --scanvideos, all my videos get inserted into videometadata correctly. But if I run it a second time, the filename field is updated with the full path to the video which breaks mythweb. After the first scan, I can see the videos from the web, after the second, I can't.

Mythtv frontends even on other hosts can still see the videos. But they are shown via the full path which has to be navigated down to the video directory.

The only workaround I have right now is to delete whole table before rerunning.

I didn't realize it at first, but it's actually toggling every time it's run. Full path -> relative path -> full path -> ...

Sounds like you have a broken configuration where you've set both a Videos Storage Group and a "local" path for Video Library pointing to the same directory structure. (Note, too, that these settings may exist/conflict on different hosts.)
