I envision having a system where users can contribute their own EDL’s, or filters, for DVD’s. These filters tell you when to stop, when to start, when to continue but muted.
Then to use them you right click a menu associated with the DVD in the drive, and select from the available filters for that DVD.
There is a central repository for it that provides for auto downloading of all filters, and auto downloading of filters related to a DVD when it is first inserted.
The filters can also do more than just mute or skip–they can jump from one spot to another [ex: inserting outtakes, with and without choosing sections of the screen of said outtakes to insert], insert outside media into the middle of playing it [ex: sounds to play over profanity, user contributed soundtracks/voice overs, etc.]
