I don't have the detailed knowledge of Mytharchive that Paul and Nick 
have, but I think it is fair to say that if you want to do things with 
videos that *aren't* Mythrecordings, and you want to do it in Myth, then 
you need to install Mythvideo.  Then Myth will recognise their existence 
and allow you to watch them, apply cutlists, transfer to DVD, etc... 
You can do this outside Myth too, say with Xine and K3b, but life would 
probably be easier with Mythvideo installed.

If I'm wrong about this anyone is free to say so :-)
