Then I went to "Watch Videos" and it didn't show up - for awhile.  As I was looking around and wondering what my problem might be the video magically appeared.  Today I repeated this experience with another DVD.  What's the magic secret here?
You need to go to Setup->Video Manager before the ripped DVD will
appear. It is this step that scans the video directory and updates the
database with the titles it finds there.
