No storage groups. DVD nav for both dvddir and dvd.iso does not work 
when setup that way.

I am using FE utilities/setup > setup > media setting > video setting > 
General setting > Directories that hold videos = /var/lib/mythvideos

BTW, /var/lib/mythvideos does not exist in the FE but it exists only on 
the BE and this setting allows me to
navigate down from FE Media Lib > watch videos menu item. However it 
does not play the video reached at the end.
