I would not deal with the files on the disc, odds are they can not be
accesed without a fair amount of hacking. Instead, I would play the DVD
on your computer as large as possible (full screen is best), pause at a
suitable image, and then hit the print screen button. (These
instructions are for PCs, Macs need a utility such as DVD Grab to work)
Paste the file into a image manipulation program and crop the image down
to size, save as a jpeg or other suitablee file format. Much easier,
and you can use the video's opening graphics for a title shot on your
insert and make various shots.
Hope that helps.

This is slightly off-topic, but I hope someone on the list may be able
to help me.
Since videos in church libraries and denominational resource centers
don't circulate any better without cover art than they do in public
libraries, I create case inserts when necessary using graphics obtained
from the organizations' website.
I've recently received a DVD with no available graphic to pull for the
cover unless I can grab a shot from the DVD itself and change it to a
still shot. The files are in a .VOB format.
