There are a few different ways to play a DVD within LinuxMCE this guide outlines a couple. The vast majority of DVD can be played by simply inserting the DVD into the DVD player and LinuxMCE will automatically select the proper device and start playing the DVD. The DVD menu should appear on the screen ready to be used to start the movie.
