This is a common misconception. DVD structure is more complex than just a
video stream split into several files. The VOB components are divided into
cells, with possibly cells out of order or menus intermixed and very
probably timestamp resets. All this is held together by the extra files,
especially the IFO files.

FFmpeg can not read the IFO files itself, but it contains a script in the
tools directory that can generate a merging script: see tools/dvd2concat.
