I finally tried vgtmpeg but unfortunately it did not work to extract a frame from a DVD. I have open a ticket on their tracker, if someone want more info, check it (https://github.com/concalma/vgtmpeg/issues/6). I'm going back to a solution that use dvd2concat.

But I'm still convinced that DVD/Blu-ray support should be built in FFmpeg and that the work done in vgtmpeg it's more then just a start. It's based on the de-facto libraries for DVD and Blu-ray, libdvdread and libbluray. And, if we can believe this post (http://forum.doom9.org/archive/index.php/t-163545.html), the author looks open to merging back in FFmpeg some features. But no need to say that the main problem is still that someone as to put time on this... I know, there's nothing magical.
