2 things come to mind:
- Tracker shouldn't need to use D-Bus to access its database read-only:
- The way you currently use Tracker means that there's no way to
differentiate between videos that I want indexed and searchable, and the
ones that I want to export. This is a privacy problem and could be
solved by making applications provide their catalogues instead (which
could be powered by Tracker).
