Streaming Entire DVD from Cloud: Menu, Main Video, Extras
Playable DVDs have menus, the main movie/video with chapter markers and sometimes extras that you can access from the menu. If you copy the entire DVD and store the Video TS folder on your computer, you can access the menu via DVD playing software like VLC and from there play the movie, the extras, chapters whatever.  (FYI these are the home videos of us when we were little that are now on DVD).

But I want to load the entire DVD to the cloud for my relatives so they too can enjoy the experience of grainy 8mm home movies.  Would I have to build a web menu and then load the DVD files separately (the main move and the extras)? Or is there some way to upload the whole DVD and play it "as is" from the net.

Assume for this question that we do not want to convert the DVD files - leave them as MPEG2.

edited: I think what we' re looking for is some form of Media Center-like software that supports Internet streaming. I found info from 2007 here but need more updated info.

As far as I know, there is no way to do what you're suggesting.

Fanboys were doing it in 2007: http://www.avsforum.com/t/856777/streaming-real-dvd-rips-with-menus what I think I need is Media Center software. I was hoping for updated suggestions.

Sounds like they were streaming to a device, not via http?
