Crossplatform replacement for DVDPreview

I'm working on porting VobBlanker to Qt but one of the major issues is with porting or finding a replacement for DVDPreview from DVD2AVI. So my question is about suitable replacements but I'm still somewhat new to Qt so I'm not sure what is a good option. Would phonon using the videowidget and mediaobject be enough? Can this handle playback if passed an IFO file? Or would creating a widget, or using an existing one if one exists, using ffmpeg or libmpeg2 as the decoder be a better route? I could always try porting DVDPreview but I'm not sure of the utility or if that offers any advantages over the previous options. Thanks.

What about integrating MPlayer? There is a nice GUI for MPlayer, called SMPlayer, that is based on Qt and which does support DVD playback.
There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment.
How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork.

I can look into that, but a lot would be stripped out since it's really just used for a tiny preview window and I don't need the entire mplayer functionality. That's why I was hoping phonon might work. Thanks.

Followup question: What is the proper mimetype to query for to make sure when using Phonon that the proper codec is installed? Using phonon to query the availablemimetypes, on my Windows 7 x64 install I see video/mpeg, video/x-mpeg and video/x-mpeg2a. On this page I also see it list video/mpeg2 as a mime type. So is video/x-mpeg2a or video/mpeg2 the proper one to check? Or should I check for the presence of either? Thanks.
