How do most people build their video library?

Are you buring iso images to use with a virtual disc in your HTPC or playing the vob file with a media player. Or are you just popping in a dvd.

I would like to backup my dvd to the hard drive and just play them across the network, but what is the best format for doing so.


Usually i pop in a dvd(+r), but sometimes i stream media off my server. I copy all the .VOB’s to a shared directory,make a samba connection in xbox media center and off the movie goes.

Thanks. I’ll look for this samba. how difficult is it to get the xbox setup.

Your xbox needs to be modded. Samba is for sharing Windows directories with linux.
