I would recommend that you make a test folder and put some of the videos(copies) in it and then try out some of the programs listed above on that test folder.

An excellent suggestion. Especially with Linux commands, the results of pattern match are often a lot more complex than we are used to with Windows wildcards. You can easily submit every file in a partition or directory to some operation if you are not careful.
