For the records: The longest title of a DVD, which probably is the feature
movie, can be played like this:

mplayer dvd://$(mplayer dvd:// -identify -frames 0 |grep ID_DVD_TITLE
|grep LENGTH |sort -n -t = -k 2 |tail -1 |cut -f 4 -d _)

This line of course should be seasoned to your own taste with spices like
-vo, -ao, -vf scale=... ;-)
