[mythtv-users] Playing ripped DVD slow

Ripping "perfect vobs" works for me. However, I found I need to run:
mythcommflag --video to build seek tables for the .vobs. If I don't do
that, fast forward, rewind don't work well, sometimes mythfrontend locks
up (I have a patch), and I can lose sound during playback (although
exiting/restarting playback restores sound).

I think the right sequence is:
1) rip your vobs.
2) Go to Utilities/Setup -> Video Manager so mythtv "discovers" the new vobs
3) Execute the command:
mythcommflag --video <full-path-to-videos-dir>/<new-vob_file> ...
