Playing a Xvid or x264 video on a burned DVD...

Hey guys,

As method of archiving, I burn most of my videos to DVD for later viewing... in MCE (where I came from) I would just slide the DVD in and it would detect it as a video DVD and play.

How does one get this type of funtionality with Sage? I am trying to do this on a Sage client with a DVD rom.

As it stands currently, if I click "Play DVD" it says "There is no DVD in the drive"...

** I figure this out with the default Sage theme, just couldn't with SageMC... **

Thanks in advance,
Travis Bell

Check out SageMC. It has a "Play file" option in the imported video menu where you can navigate to the DVD drive and play the file like that.
