    I have installed VLC 1.1.1 from Cydia to be able to play DVDs on my iPhone. I would prefer not to have to recode them, just copy the whole directory structure onto the iPhone (yes, it is big but I will not keep more than one at a time).

    However, I cannot get it to work. VLC claims I should place the videos in /var/mobile/Media, but it cannot find the directory (containing a VIDEO_TS subdirectory with the actual VOB files.). VLC on Windoze can play such a directory structure. Does anyone know if I can get it to work on the iPhone, and how?

    Yes, but what I am asking is: where do I place it?
