I believe reading the structures and indices, and skipping e.g. titles,
menus, and notably junk, is missing.

ffmpeg's own tools/dvd2concat is made to assist with that, with the
help of lsdvd. ffmpeg itself would probably require a proper
DVD structure aware demuxer[*].


[*] Or perhaps a layer on top of a demuxer, to expose the MPEG-PS. A
pseudo-protocol? Not sure, but those are technicalities.
