Bug Description

There is a video file called "How fast.ogg" in /usr/share/example-content/Ubuntu_Free_Culture_Showcase.

After i've watched it it appears in video lens as recently watched. But when I'm searching for "How" I only get online movies as a result and not that file.

When it's not a bug, then I want to make known that in my opinion the workflow is killed by this "feature".

Currently, the searchable part of the lens only sees files in the ~/Videos folder.

Several ways of fixing this, in my order of preference:
- The example content is moved to ~/Images, ~/Videos,~/Documents, etc.
- The My Videos category indexes watched videos not in ~/Videos (with Zeitgeist).
- The Recently Watched category avoids to show results not in ~/Videos.
