Yet... pretty soon you will be able to do it with directshow... you can
build a graph with .vob files priovided you have a dvd player installed like
powerdvd... the main thing stopping it now is...

a) Need a coulour space converter from it's RGB output to YV12
b) It's still pretty damned slow, with all this debugging code in it.
c) I'm still not satisfied my theora encoder is bug free yet.

But it's not unfeasible.... on windows anyway.
