I assume you use the title number displayed by the DVD player. Does
anybody know if we can get this information from MPlayer while using
dvdnav://? Or another good idea to identify the title track?

I am using the simple heuristic to look for the longest title on a DVD.
This often works, but not for my problematic Disney DVD. It does not
work for some other DVDs either, but with a sensible amount of possible
titles (that are in the ballpark of the movie length) this can be found
out manually.

Do things that have never been done before.
