Many of my friends have movies copied from cd or dvd’s as image files as img, iso and nrg images, so in order to play the movie inside these images files we use several image mounting tools which lets you mount these images on the virtual drive or other hand some people burn these images to cd and dvd discs

    Great!

    Default movie player in ubuntu -totem- can’t do this, you should mount the image file first in order to play it. I was trying to do the same with vlc not knowing that it was easier with vlc, just right click and play.

    Thanks!

    thanks, I have ALL my own personal albums (music I created) on a DVD as image files (I have 3 dvds worth of albums) but I did not want to burn a disk in order to listen to them.
