[FFmpeg-user] Can FFmpeg fetch a title from a DVD?

Thank you for all the suggestions.

I want to stick to open-source if possible, on principle.

I tried MPlayer, but I got an error; libdvdread complained that it couldn't open the file with 
libdvdcss. Not sure why. It seemed to open the DVD OK, because it told me the correct number of 
titles on it.

I'm guessing that FFmpeg can't do it, since I got the alternative suggestions.

I've found somewhat of a workaround with VLC (not sure if that's technically FOSS or not) that I can 
live with, if there's no FFmpeg solution.
