Mounting a blue ray iso on linux, to play in vlc

Recently downloaded a blu ray movie on my seed box, went to play it and I could mount it in ubuntu but the default setting still would not let me watch the movie in vlc. However after a quick google search I went here:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1209981

And sure enough the guys advice which was to mount with:
sudo mount -o loop -t udf pathtobluray.iso /media/cdrom

Worked perfectly. Once mounted navigate to the directory with vlc /dev/cdrom/BDVM/STREAM/*.m2ts

I put an asterisk because I am not certain the m2ts is the same name on every blu ray.
