Is there a way to easily rip DVD's to the hard drive and view them using XBMC. I have always converted mine to .avi to do this. Someone I know wants to just use DVD2Xbox (I assume), to save their DVD's to the hard drive and view them from there. He does not want to convert them. When you do this you just get a bunch of unstackable .vob files. Any way to do this easily? Thanks.

DVD2Xbox will copy it across and XBMC can play the dvd files directly.

How do you get XBMC to play the files. Surely I don't have to select each file, play it, then select the next .vob and so on.

No you dont. XBMC can detect the ifo file, so you just select it and let XBMC do all the work. It couldnt be any easier.

hmmmm.... i ripped a movie to the hard drive and located the .ifo file, which I then selected and nothing happened. Could it be the .ifo file or something else?
