Working with DVDs


This chapter discusses two aspects of DVDs and MythTV. First off, we’ll look at how to play and import DVDs with MythTV, and then we’ll look at how you can create your own DVDs of things you have recorded with MythTV. Importing (sometimes referred to as ripping) is the process of taking the data on a DVD and putting it on the machine’s hard disk, so that you don’t have to have the DVD in the drive to play it. This can be particularly convenient for DVDs that you like watching a lot, or that are slightly damaged. You can also optionally transcode these ripped files to a format that will take up less space on the disk.
