Comment(by gdalziel):

 I've looked in to it and apparently that copy of libdvdread was split off
 from libdvdnav, and so now they have two seperate projects. Looking at the
 MPlayer changelog shows that MPlayer is using version 0.9.7 of the real
 libdvdread. Why they keep choosing to name things after things which
 already have that name I'll never know.

 "This fork of dvdnav [dvdread] was created to overcome the lack of
 responsiveness of the official development channel, not to bastardize this
 library in something for specific usage by mplayer, so these are the rules
 to follow when developing code"

 So basically it's MPlayer's version of libdvdnav.
