I am hoping that someone can helpme out, as I’m probably just searching for the wrong thing. I just purchased a WD TV Live Plus device to replace an HTPC running MediaPortal. In my Video library, I’ve ripped all of my DVDs into folders named after the name of the movie, and then contain the video_ts / VOB files.
I’m going to Videos > Network Shares (or Media Servers). I get to the Movie folder and then have to drill down to the video_ts folder and the finally the .VOB folder. Is this really necessary? Media Portal would ‘recognize’ the folder contained VOB files and would automatically play them when the “movie folder” was selected (i.e. I never even saw the “video_ts” folder).
As for Media Servers I’ve tried Tversity and PS3 Media Server with the same results. I tried making a playlist, but that seemed to have the same result. I really do not want to convert several hundred movies to an .ISO file, which I think might solve the problem. There’s gotta be a better way though.
(Yes, I realize it’s only a couple of button presses, but my non-tech savy wife is going to complain so I’m trying to streamline this as much as possible.
