For DVD menu support to be added to mplayer would probably mean using libdvdnav.
The current libdvdnav is not really suitable for the mplayer
architecture, so should not be used in it's current form.

I am one of the authors of libdvdnav and I have plans to reorganise
libdvdnav so that it would be suitable for inclusion into mplayer. The
problem is that I don't seem to have enough time to do the work.
