If you do not use dvdnav:// there is no menu involved, if it loops that is because there is a looping video in the vob.
Either way the proper solution would be to use dvd-device=http:// but unfortunately that (and in general custom protocols) are not supported by dvdread.
A FUSE tool that allows you mounting the web server files like a normal filesystem would be a workaround.
