Ummm, look at the facts before ranting please. MPlayer works perfectly
fine with external libdvdread and libdvdcss. The patch we apply to
libdvdread is small, libdvdcss is vanilla. This used to be different,
but the main reason to shipping those libraries is convenience for the
users compiling MPlayer.
Now libdvdnav seems to be a different and indeed require modifications
to play well with MPlayer. From what James Courtier-Dutton said, this
was no different for xine, they just got their changes merged back ..
