How can I watch ISO files or digitize DVDs without having to mount them?

I created ISO files of all my DVDs, but now I have to mount and unmount the ISO to change the movies. There are 3 PCs at home to watch these movies from. Is there no easy way to watch them or put them in a fashion so it can be read with ease. They are all over 6 HDD.

Thanks.

    Agreed VLC is a nice and quick solution.

    However, to add an 'extra slickness' to your viewing experience, why not try the media player XBMC (www.xbmc.org)?

    Not only it will play your ISO files as normal DVD's but you get the added benefit of a nice interface and automatically download posters of all your movies!

    VLC Mediaplayer is able to open and watch ISO Movies without any further steps needed
    all you have to do is click "Media > Open file" and select the ISO

    You can also right-click the ISO files and change the default "open with" program to VLC. This way you only have to double-click the file to play it.
