Planned: create new libudfread library instead, just for reading UDF. Take the IFO part of dvdread into libifo. Retain compatibility with libdvdnav, and libdvdcss. Also work with libbluray.
I have made some patches to the regular libdvdread library used by many developers. Alas, I have had no luck in getting them accepted into the upstream repository, which has forced me to maintain a second version myself.
* Bring UDF compatibility from base 1.92, to 2.50. This adds Bluray and BD5 ISO format. * Properly handle UDF chains, instead of assuming they are contiguous, and without gap. * Move filesizes from 32bit to 64bit. * Add POSIX style opendir(3), readdir(3) API to add the ability to retrieve contents of ISO files & input-devices. * Add POSIX style open(3) of non-DVD related files. (Reading playlists, certificates etc) * Allow API call to set IO handlers. Allowing all IO to libdvdread be developer defined. (Adding RAR support, or FTP perhaps)
