Make AddVideo return Id?

Post by wmorrison » Sun Jan 19, 2020 11:38 pm

It would be helpful if the Video service 'AddVideo' returned the Id of the newly added video rather than just a boolean.

I am adding a video, then updating its metadata with UpdateVideoMetadata, which requires an Id. In between I get the Id with GetVideoByFileName (the same name as used in AddVideo.) Would be nice to skip GetVideoByFileName, since the Id was already generated during AddVideo (just not currently returned.)
