This may sound like a strange question, but I was wondering if there is software available which can emulate the behaviour of standalone dvd-players. I'm currently debugging a DVD we're creating, and I can't afford to go hopping to my house every time to check.

The reason I'm asking is because the problems just appear on 'some' dvd-players which I cannot predict.

Other option maybe, is there software that can check a VIDEO_TS folder or iso file for errors?

Though I doubt this will get to the heart of the "some players" problem. I always use VLC for stuff like this either the portable version if you don't want to install or the regular version

Media Player Classic Home Cinema can open a DVD Directory and will play it as if it was a disc in a drive.

File -> Open DVD (or Ctrl+d) allows you to select any DVD folder, either from an optical drive or HDD.
