Check in your input.cfg: you must use the variable "Device" instead of
"FileName" to configure a DVD input. If you want to stream an encrypted DVD,
check you have <htmlurl name="libdvdcss"

<tag/Can I use a TV card with vls ?/ <label id="q2">
The VideoLAN Server can only take MPEG streams on its input, so you must have
a board able to produce a MPEG stream. Under linux, the only card able to do
that is the kfir mpeg2 encoder developed by BMK (see
<htmlurl url="">).
You can also do software encoding (with <htmlurl name="ffmpeg"
url=""> for instance) and use a named pipe (fifo)
to feed the vls with the encoded MPEG stream.
