The most current version of MovieWiz has had some changes around this function. I don't have the code in front of me, but I think this is how it works:

- In the plugin, when you attempt to play a title, if it is NOT found, it attempts to see if you transcoded and searches for the movie filename with a different extension (ie .avi, .mp4, .mov,...). If it is NOT found, I believe it marks it as hidden (ie. appends @@ to the title). Hidden items will not show in the plugin.
- In the config program, there is a 'Sync Archive' (don't remember the exact text) button. This will run thru the DB and attempt to locate the entries as above, and mark the ones not found as hidden.
- There is a batch interface (MovieWizManager.exe) that can be run from a batch file to run the sync, and a function called 'delete hidden', to remove the hidden entries from the db.
