I'm running makemkv right now on a BD.   You can't play the file until its
done with mplayer or xine, but each chapter is a separate file, by the looks
of it.

Its took about 15 minutes to rip the first chapter.  It will take about 60
minutes to rip everything.   The drive is being read at about 4x speed.

If the player is smart enough to seek out file after file, you can start
playing the content about 15 minutes after inserting the DVD.

If you need it faster than that, you could stream it.
