Thanks for any hints.

VLC should open it (like it does a DVD image) if you have libbluray sorted
out and all the necessary keys and DRM stuff...

If VLC doesn't work (and it probably won't due to the DRM) then the
easiest option is to use MakeMkv. This allows you to either rip the
video to an mkv file (legality depends on your jurisdiction), or to
stream the video which you should then be able to play in VLC or XMBC
or similar.

There's an OBS repo with it at [1], and you'll need a free beta key
from [2] every month.

Cheers!

Many thanks for this info, John.

I can play the DVD without any problems - it is only the iso image which is causing me grief.

And I will look at MakeMkv shortly.

Thanks again.
