Watching video from dvd files doesn't work

Hi there,

Does anybody know whow to watch a video in the filesystem in dvd structure (/ 
It seems that a video with dvd structure can be played only if it can be found 
at /dev/dvd (or so), but not if it's in the file system.
I think, that this wouldn't be hard to do, but somehow xine, kmplayer, et al, 
cannot open files like VIDEO_TS.IFO.
While I'm able to play the .vob files, I'm not able to get the dvd menu.

Does anybody know how to solve this?
