MythTV includes a built-in media player to play back your recordings, videos and DVDs. The Internal Player is based on the FFmpeg source with several modifications and supports an expanding range of video and audio codecs.
The Internal media player is now the recommended player for DVDs and other file types over external players, such as Xine or Mplayer, and supports the following:
- DVD playback
- ISO playback
- DVD menus
- Multiple audio tracks
In order to use the Internal Player in MythDVD or MythVideo set the player to "Internal" (capital I) and ensure that the Default Player option is not selected. Internal player playback settings for MythDVD and MythVideo are controlled by the MythTV TV playback settings.
