I agree that people may have corrupted rips of the DVD's however the
number of physical disks that fail playing (or have glitches while
playing) is very high.  Many of the stand alone players on the same
system have no issue at all playing the disk flawlessly while MythTV
shows significant issues.

I'd love to see playback of physical DVD's rock solid.  If a physical
disk works but the .iso does not then (in many cases) it would
indicate a problem with the rip and not MythTV in general.

Too bad storage group compatibility has not been built in to VLC.  I'd
happily have MythTV call VLC as the DVD / .iso player then use the
built in video player for .mkv and related files.
