Who started calling this "cdrom mode"? This is very ugly name ;-)
However your windoze media player is stupid :) It plays disks in "file mode"
but it figure out from ifo files and like which file should be played, from
which sector pos and so on. This "full disk movie mode" (it's a better name
I think) requires implement DVD streaming type, ifo parsing, and some minor
changes as well inside mplayer. But basically the same thing happens for
both of "file" and "cdrom" mode inside a player. At least in mplayer and
German's patch (which enabled "cdrom" mode playing, but his patch is very
outdated and buggy and not even counting the fact that I don't understand
some stuffs inside out - for example the double usage of descrambling).
