Windows 7: Working with the "Other media" Library

Working with the "Other media" Library

In MWP (Windows Media Player), "Other media" shows up as a library, but it doesn't have an entry in Organize - Manage libraries, so I can't see how items are being selected to appear there. How do I edit this library's settings?

The files displayed as Other media are all mp4 files. They do not show up in the Videos library even though they are located in my Videos folder. The WMP Videos library does correctly display most of the videos in my Video folder. Any ideas how to fix this?
