Well not really, Sam from vlc (dont ask me his surname) was working
on it for a pretty long time and most of the stuff know anbout
DVD subtitles and menu goes onto his account. Ogle just took his
notes and put it into a working program. Why wasn't it then in vlc ?
Because the design didn't allow it at that time. It's pretty much
the same with MPlayer, the design isnt ready for dvd menus.
Sure it could be done, but it would be an ugly hack.
