Who is the upstream for libdvdread? Seems like it’s overdue for some
serious TLC.

All that information about the VOBs needs to be in the XML file,
because remember the XML file needs to have the necessary information
to recreate the complete DVD-Video structure.

I could add a patch so if DVDOpenFile returns NULL, then instead of
aborting the whole run, I simply return immediately from that call to
getVobs. But I’m not sure how I’d test it...
