You use the mythvideo plugin.

Once you setup an area where your video files will be, you just add
new files to that storage. You may need to use the "Video Manager" to
allow the GUI to see these files.

The directory that mythvideo uses can be a local one or one that's
shared across the network (via nfs or samba).
