how to mount a Video DVD when it is on hard drive. ?

Hi all,
 Please CC me if replying to this query. I know how to mount data
DVD's in Debian but I don't know how to mount Media DVD's so they look
like a DVD drive and can be played . An e.g. of data DVD :-

Code: Select all
    $$ sudo mount -o loop debian-testing-amd64-DVD-1.iso /mnt/dvd
mount: warning: /mnt/dvd seems to be mounted read-only.

/mnt/dvd$ ls
autorun.inf  dists     g2ldr      install.amd  pics
README.mirrors.html  README.txt  win32-loader.ini
css  doc  g2ldr.mbr  isolinux pool README.mirrors.txt   setup.exe
debian firmware  install md5sum.txt README.html  README.source tools

Of course I needed to create some mount point at /mnt/ (as in
/mnt/dvd) or wherever I want to mount. With data CD/DVD it is easier
because its just the .iso filename which needs to be given as source
and the mount point as the target and that's it but for Media DVD's
have no idea.

They are usually something like this :-

Code: Select all
    /VIDEO_TS$ ls
    VIDEO_TS.BUP  VTS_01_1.VOB  VTS_03_0.IFO  VTS_05_0.BUP
VTS_03_1.VOB  VTS_05_0.IFO  VTS_07_0.BUP  VTS_08_1.VOB  VTS_10_0.IFO
VIDEO_TS.VOB  VTS_02_0.IFO  VTS_04_0.BUP  VTS_05_1.VOB  VTS_07_0.IFO
VTS_09_0.BUP  VTS_10_1.VOB  VTS_01_0.BUP  VTS_02_1.VOB  VTS_04_0.IFO
VTS_06_0.BUP  VTS_07_1.VOB  VTS_09_0.IFO  VTS_01_0.IFO  VTS_03_0.BUP
VTS_04_1.VOB  VTS_06_0.IFO  VTS_08_0.BUP  VTS_09_1.VOB

They are probably chapters or something similar. Any ideas as to how
mount it and see it in VLC automatically (one chapter after another or
joined by VLC behind the scenes so one sees the whole thing as one
linear thing) would be nice.

Looking forward for answers and tips.

p.s. - did see the manpage, the wikipedia entry for the mount command
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_(Unix) and did try searching
google fu but no luck.
