Hidden video/media

I noticed that if you mark files hidden (tested this on my bold with OS 4/OS5 and my 9800 OS6) and then view those hidden files (specifically videos) they are no longer hidden.  The video's still have hidden set in their properties but the media/video player still shows them in the play list.  This doesn't happen for pictures with the hidden property turned on.  If you use explorer to view the file it will still be hidden unless you do (show hidden) but the video still shows up in the video list and you are able to play it again.  Is this a bug?


Anyone experience this or know of a fix?  If I mark it hidden, even if I watch/view it I want it to remain hidden.  The way it is with pictures.  I can view a picture with its properties set to hidden (and it remains like that) and then back out and go into picture viewer and not see the picture.


In OS4 I didn't have this issue, but OS5/OS6 it occurs.
