    If you mean DVD Player instead of iDVD it can be done when the video DVD is ripped to your hard drive and you append dvdmedia onto the Video_TS folder, for example Video_TS.dvdmedia or Example_Movie.dvdmedia. Then by just double clicking it opens the DVD Player software, but it does not show as a DVD in Finder's sidebar.

    You can also use the parent folder to append dvdmedia to it.
    Example:
    movie >
    Audio_TS
    Video_TS

    to

    movie.dvdmedia.

    Appending dvdmedia to one folder make it seem like one file, but it is only a package and can be undone by Cmd+I on the movie.dvdmedia file and deleting the appendix/extension.

    I hope it works.

    When I tried it at work with some DVD Recorder recorded DVDs ripped to my HDD, DVD Player said it could not recognize the format, but at least double clicking opened DVD Player.
