That's a bit misleading... you need to have entries in your database 
defining where to store ripped videos.  This setting is entered via 
MythVideo setup, but once the setting is in the database, there is no 
runtime dependency on MythVideo, and you could uninstall it if you 
wanted to.  You could also create the DB entry by hand, eliminating the 
need to install MythVideo at all.

Also, note that the MythVideo DB entry dependency is only needed for 
ripping DVDs.  If you want MythDVD only for actual DVD/VCD playback, I 
don't think you need it.  Of course, if you're ripping DVDs, you 
probably want MythVideo anyway, since you'll need it to play back your 
ripped videos!
