I read the Jamu wiki, I read the link I cited about DVDs.

I was thrown off by the interactive Jamu session wanting to parse
VTS_03_01.VOB and so forth over several DVDs that were right next to

I'm not using .ISOs.

Do I need to do anything to tell jamu to parse and create two entries
rather than an entry per .VOB file?
