My mother's Mythbuntu 16.04 box has now got a folder with a BD image
in its videos storage group.  I can make it play for her using

mythavtest /mnt/sda4/videos/Donizetti\ -\ Don\ Pasquale\ -\ John\ Del\
Carlo\ 2010/

But when I try to play it using mythfrontend, nothing happens.  I have
tried using Play on the folder, and using "I" then "Play folder" and
any other variants I could find.  Nothing works - mythfrontend does
not even attempt to play it, and there is nothing at all in the log
file.  Is seems that it does not recognise that it should even try to
play the folder, so I am wondering if there is some option somewhere
that I need to set to make it see BD and DVD folders as playable. Does
anyone have any ideas?  Does playing of BD and DVD folders work for
