Is there an open-source/freeware DVD navigator that can be used with MP? (1 Viewer)

I would be happy to use MP's internal DVD player, but I am bothered by the fact that by default the DVD navigation forces me to watch previews and warning screens (the way, for instance, a normal, standalone DVD player or Windows Media Center do, i.e. they enforce the so-called UOPs (user-operation prohibitions)).

By contrast, VLC, for instance, can skip those previews/warning screens and go straight to the DVD's root menu.

Is there a way to have this ability in MP while still using the internal player, i.e. is there an open-source/freeware DVD navigator that can be selected in MP's configuration that has this ability too?
What format does it have to be in; a DirectShow filter?

Thanks for listening.

    The only other DVDNavigator that worked with MP was PowerDVD8, so if you know anyone who may have a copy laying around.

    Thanks.
    Is the PowerDVD8 DVD navigator capable of skipping past previews and warnings? Do you know if the one that comes with PowerDVD9 works as well?

    To partially answer my own question, should anyone stumble across this:

    Another way of approaching this is at the source-material level, by using a DVD driver, such as the (commercial) AnyDVD made by SlySoft, which is capable of bypassing UOPs and jumping straight to the DVD's main menu or even the movie itself (based on configurable settings).

    In the long run, however, it would be nice if MP were capable of doing that itself, given that other open-source apps such as VLC can do it.

    Writing a DVD navigator diretcshow filter is not a small task, currently there aren't any plans to implement such.
