Got the solution from the creator of Minimyth, which should
work for any myth system: in setup, under General, there's
a setting "Monitor CD/DVD". If that is enabled, then data
DVDs are mounted automatically, and you can then play
any video files on them with MythVideo. With my setup
I had to change the MythVideo source to "/mnt/video:/media/dvd-sr0"
