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.
