Well, I agree that storing meida files separately would be wiser, but being
able to point to those files from within the EPG.data file without abusing
description or other fields with tags-reinvention will be helpful.
The use is simple, show more information for programs. Many sities of the
channels provide that information already, including pictures and movie
trailers. There is also IMDB that can be used. As an example, MythTv has a
nice use of IMDB for stored movies.
Same can be implemented for live movies as well.
