So now I do not have a strong incentive to patch FFmpeg! But I do not say no in the future. It will depends of my client needs (museum video archival) and how the dvd2concat/lsdvd solution will work in production.

Wow, this looks very interesting. That could solve some other problem I'm having (like mounting .iso). I need to test it. If the DVD/Blu-ray support is done correctly, this should definitely go back in main FFmpeg.

Thanks for the pointer.
