I am trying to play a DVD which was copied to a network folder on a server using the command line. If I use the following:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe"  dvd:// "\\Bts1\cctv\client\DVD 2"

It plays the DVD in VLC but I get an error message that says

Playback failure:
DVDRead could not open the disc
Your input cant be opened
vlc is unable to open the MDL 'dvd://'. check the log for details

Why do get the error message but it still plays the DVD from the folder?
