So what you need is to rip/transcoding (or use a dvd backup utility) a 
DVD and then play it from the hard disk :-)

The key point if to know if the DVD is protected or not. 

If it's not protected just copy/paste the files into a folder and point 
VideoLAN to it. 

If it's protected and depending on the type of security it uses, you will 
have to use a program which can deal with "libdvdcss". I think that VLC 
itself provides such option.
