Yes there is. Just force the old dvd plugin by using an MRL of the type 
"dvdold:D:" instead of the default "dvd:D:". Unless of course you didn't 
actually compile the old dvd plugin, but I see no reason why you shouldn't.

Ok, so what should be done I guess is to modify the interface to use the 
"dvdold" access module in the MRL by default... unless the user activates 
dvd menu support.

By the way, anybody against changing the "dvdold" shortcut into "dvdsimple" 
? It sounds more appropriate.
