Search inconsistent with other lenses

Bug Description


The local video search that performs locate, currently gives sub-optimal results when doing multiword queries - video lens returns only exact matches, while other lenses treat the search differently - ie query "foo qoo" in videos lens won't return "foo bar qoo", nor "foo.qoo" (while for example files lens will)


- Put a random multiword video in ~/Videos. (for example "The.Sintel.mp4")
- Open Videos lens and ensure that searching for "sintel mp4" or "the mp4" returns the video (this won't work before the fix).

[Regression potential]

- Search for local videos stops working
- Only multiword videos are returned after the fix
