I haven't had a problem playing them from the video_ts folder. But a better
solution all around would be to create an iso file out of them. Then you can
just put the iso file in with your other videos in myth video. You should be
able to find burning software or some other means to create an iso image
that just contains the video_ts folder in it. When you do it make sure that
the software is configured for DVD video rather than a generic data DVD. In
my ignorance, I made an iso as a data DVD with some burning software and it
took me forever to figure out why the iso wouldn't play.
