I think the general consensus is, don't have non-vdr stuff under /video 
directories! Have you tried setting the permissions on the directories so 
they cannot be removed?

Eeeek! Also makes permissions a bit more complex than just changing 
ownership to the non-vdr user.

Can you put the directory elsewhere and use a symbolic link in /video, and 
check it exists before running vdrconvert?
