Bug Description

I am running Mythbuntu 8.04.

I have installed all the codecs/CSS packages, but MythTV (or Mplayer/VLC) can't play the DVDs. I believe that the error is that the programs are looking in /dev/dvd for the DVD and that does not exist on my system. I know that I need:
ln -sf /dev/??? /dev/dvd
but I don't know how to find out the sda/sdb device that corresponds to my DVD drive.

Also, how do I make the link permanent (survive a reboot)?

Why isn't a /dev/dvd created when Ubuntu is installed? The media players seem to use it. /dev/cdrom exists on the system and works correctly, why can't Ubuntu make a /dev/dvd that goes to the same place? Is this something that I should file a bug for?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Hello William,

This is more a request for advice at this stage, so I have converted your bug to a question. If there are any bugs or feature requests that become clear when people are answering your question, you could open a new bug for these at that stage.
