Play DVD Option? - vexation - 2009-08-04 18:37
I feel a bit stupid asking this.. but is there no 'Play DVD' option for this skin? Couldn't find anything in the Skin Settings (although you can launch from videos) - admittedly it's a rarity these days but the significant other still fwaps ye olde DVD on every now and then and I know she'll struggle with this.
xbmc-9.04.2+svn21936-jaunty1 / transparency 1.03
By the way, I LOVE this skin.. would like to echo clock2113's request about shortening the list of movies in fanart view but besides that.. well, this is a near perfect skin. Thanks for all your hard work.

There's no option for this right now, but you could do this.
Settings > System > Autoplay > Autoplay DVD-Video
and it will start a DVD whenever it's entered. That's even one less step than pressing a button.

it's something i've overlooked. i thought you could use the player controls for that (they are available when a disk is in the drive, hit 'm' on keyboard or the menu button on remote) but apparently the play button doesn't work for actual disks.
i'll have to add an extra button to the controls for playing disks.
cheers for the report.

I was so set on looking for a play DVD button I totally forgot about the autoplay. That'll definitely keep the missus sweet thanks.
I'll keep the menu in mind too (gotta get this pesky MCE remote configured for that button, keep forgetting) cheers again Ronie and keep up the good work.

Would certainly be useful to add a link on the home page for this. I had to disable the auto play since there is a new "feature" (although for me it is a bug) in the latest svn builds, that also starts to play a dvd when you start xbmc if there is a disc in the drive, rather than only when you insert the disc.

I would like to always show the DVD option. For some reason it won't show up on my ASRock Ion 330. I do have auto play enabled on XBMC but would still like the option there on the home screen. How would I go about doing this?

you mean there's no 'Play Disc' button on the player controls if you press 'm' on your keyboard or 'menu' on your remote?
it should be the button on the right and it's only visible when there's a disc in the drive.

There is one there, I thought it's suppose to appear in the menu along with Videos, Music, Movies, etc. Is there a way to make it appear up there or is it hard to do?

nope, it's not intended to work like that.
Admiral Michael Wrote:Is there a way to make it appear up there or is it hard to do?yes, adding a button to the menu is a lot of work, the steps needed are detailed in this thread:

Ah, ic. Thanks for the clarification. I've only recently started using this ski. I was using Mediastream before and it adds a DVD option to the home screen.
