    I suspect that VLC treats the disc more as a conventional console DVD
player would. My usual rip methodology didn't work on that disk (mplayer
with the dumpstream option), so I just went straight for AnyDVD. Disney
disks in general seem to be more problematic and Pixar is now a part of
the mousey beast.

    I also see more trouble with ABC DVDs too (that Disney connection again).

    I have very little trouble with any other DVDs.
