    DVD With avi movies

    Hi,
    I am completely new to mythbuntu, and I love the concept!
    I installed mythbuntu on an old machine, it seems to work perfectly, but for some reason I cannot use it to watch an avi movie file stored on a DVD.
    I am sure there must be a solution for this.
    I hope this is the right place to ask this:

    How do I use mythtv to watch avi file I already have (like movies or series episodes...)
    What am I missing? Where do I read?
    What should I do ?

    Thanks !

    Try putting /media in the frontend mythvideo settings. Then go into mythvideo and do a scan for changes. This is how I do a similar thing with USB drives
