I have XBMC running on a Mac mini running OS X, and I'd like to make our DVDs (and eventually our video cassettes) accessible, so that our five-year-old can start her movies by herself.
I first tried copying the data contents of the DVD, but XBMC doesn't do any magic when it encounters these folders. It is playable, but it is more like picking a filename, not picking a movie.
Next I'll try a straight .ISO file, but I'm hoping someone else has been down this road and has some tips. I'm most comfortable with Linux tools, but if there is a better program on Windows or OS X, I'd check it out.
