I have a collection of .avi files which are basically my DVD collection 
ripped to my hard drive with FairUse and into xvid format. On my myth 
box, I can run "mplayer -vo xv /data/dvds/movie.avi and it comes up and 
plays. However, if I go into MythTV -> Media Library -> Watch Videos and 
browse to the movie, it won't play them... though it will play iso's and 
vob's that I ripped with MythTV (which supposedly went to xvid format). 
Am I missing something???

BTW: I'm running .20 installed via ATRPMS from the guide at
