I've heard talk about people using Xine instead of mplayer for playback
of DVD's and was wondering how one would configure MythTV to use it. I
would love to be able to access the menu's from my DVD's and would
welcome any help anyone could give :) By the way, does anyone know if
it's possible to use Xine as the backend for MythVideo as well as MythDVD?
