[Digikam-users] Dealing with subdirectories

My video camera stores clips in subdirectories.  Every time you turn the 
camera on it creates a new subdirectory; each time you pause and start 
it puts the clip into the current subdirectory.  The files in the 
subdirectories have the same filename.  Since digikam scans the whole 
tree, I end up with lots of identically names files, and I lose the 
grouping of the clips.

Is there some way to tell digikam to transfer the directory tree as-is, 
instead of file-by-file into a single directory?
