Program to watch movies with menus


Hi,

I'm searching for a program that is able to view movies with menus.
VLC doesn't support this, it is only showing the trailer (the movie before the menu).

Do you know such a program, that works like a DVD player?
Optionally, do you know a program, to convert such movies to MP4 (movie part only)?

i only use vlc for playing, but for converting video formats I use winff
Code:
root@myserver:~# apt-cache search winff
winff - graphical video and audio batch converter using ffmpeg or avconv

It's a DVD with VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folder.


EDIT: I also tried to convert the .VOB files to MP4 using ffmpeg
Code:
cat *.VOB | ffmpeg -i - ~/output.mp4
But VLC is only playing the menu and the menu entries are not clickable.

There used to be a player named "ogle" that did this. Not sure if it renamed or vanished as I haven't seen it in a while. Otherwise xine or totem would be a decent bet.
