One of my dream projects for when I win the lottery and can have someone do the finicky bit (like actually building it):

Remember the Wurlitzer jukeboxes with a dome so you can see the 45 taken from the rack and placed on the turntable? I want the same, but with DVDs. The tv is the panel at the bottom. It'd have to be on legs to raise it to viewing level, but probably not as tall as you might think -- most people mount their flatscreens far too high. (And maybe some moulding on the side to suggest arms, to give it a slightly robot feel.)

There was a precursor in the 1940s, Soundies. There are lots of them on Youtube.
