Sometimes I get DVDs that crap out when I rip with vobcopy, or transcode,
but will work out with mplayer's -dumpstream option.   Some just refuse to
get past certain points and I give up.  I think there are certain errors
built into DVDs that a standalone player will just jump right past, but
trying to get a bit for bit copy just cant be done.
