Here is the output of dxr3player :

libdvdread: Invalid main menu IFO (VIDEO_TS.IFO).
Cannot open DVD!

Apparently the main menu is not created correcly by the dvd burner.

The VIDEO_TS.IFO file contains this :

I don't know why there is a problem whith the VIDEO_TS.IFO file. I have opened 
the same file on a dvd I bought, and the content is the same.

It is strange because I can launch each VOB file without any problem, mplayer 
will read them. But if I tell mplayer to open the dvd and launch the film, I 
have an error message. Is there a way to tell mplayer to not care about the 
main menu if it is faulty and then begin playing the film immediatly ?
