Menu from a folder

Hi there,
I have a bunch of videos organised in folders, I want to create a menu that will map all of these videos and link to them.
Is it possible to do this with MenuWriter? do I really need to create a page to each and every video?
what would you guys recommend as the appropriate work flow?

Many Thanks :)

An easier way is to do this dynamically. So create one page that plays your video dynamically based on a ulr variable, for example:

playvideo.php?Video=Video.wmv

And just use menu writer to dynamically create those links. This will probably require you to create a database, but if you don't want to go that way, then you will probably could still do it with one page, but you will just add the links in Menu Writer for each video.
