OK, let me rephrase that: What if I only have the data resulting from 
-dumpstream split into several files because they are on a FAT32 
partition that cannot handle filesizes >2GB?
BTW: I don't have the problem myself. A friend of mine does and now it has 
become my problem, too, because I asked him to encode a few movies for me 
and I ended up with avis that aren't in sync. The trouble is, that his 
only partition that is big enough to hold vobs is a windows partition. 

So what I need is either a way to encode from the split files (which, I'm 
beginning to assume, doesn't exist as mf:// doesn't work with vobs, 
either) or an easy way to copy the dvd so that -dvd-device works. Is it 
enough to dump the vobs, split them to the same filenames as on the dvd, 
copy the corresponding vts_0?_0.ifo and video_ts.ifo and put all that in 
a dir called video_ts?
