That's a DVD called "Ys Special Collection -All About Falcom-". It was originally a VHS/laserdisc that Falcom put out around the time both Ys IV games were released (1993), but it was later re-issued as a bonus DVD with the Japanese Limited Edition of Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim for PC in 2003.

Sadly I can't find the whole thing on YouTube, but here's a few videos taken from it:

Ys II "Endless History" Anime Music Video (1993)
"Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys" OVA Promo
"Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys" Epic Promo/Demo with Falcom® J.D.K. band (1993)*
"The Legend of Xanadu" Promo/Demo by Falcom® (1993)
Tour of the Falcom® Store plus Promotional Material (1993)

And here's the website for it: http://www.falcom.co.jp/ys6/complete/ys_sc.html

*I find hilarious how they used a Ryo Yonemitsu arrangement from the Falcom Special Box '93 on top of that J.D.K. Band footage, lol.

I know I'm necro-posting, but I just stumbled across this DVD myself last night and have been looking for info on it. For anyone interested, you can find a copy (either MP4 or ISO image) of the DVD on archive.org:

Documented on VGMDB here:

I'm trying to find a translated chapter listing, but not having much luck with that.

wow, thanks! That is unexpectedly awesome! :-) I spent the last couple hours trying to figure this out myself, using google translate as a starting point and, mostly just for grins, trying to identify the source of each song in addition to the title. I only had about 4 tracks left when I saw your post, so I finished my list.

Your tracklist is undoubtedly more accurate to what's listed on the DVD, but here's a more complete unofficial version:

01. Opening Titles
02. To Make the End of Battle
03. Ys: Heaven's Sanctuary - Prologue
04. The Vocal from Ys - Lilia ~ English version
05. Ys: Heaven's Sanctuary - Lilia's Secret
06. First Step Toward Wars
07. Popful Mail - SFC version
08. Popful Mail - Mega-CD version
09. Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys - Tower of the Shadow of Death
10. Xanadu - The Legend of the Wind
11. Ys: Heaven's Sanctuary - The Eternal Melody of Ys
12. The Legend of Heroes III
13. Perfect Collection Ys - Endless History
14. Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys Title - PC Engine version
15. Ys IV: Mask of the Sun - Celceta, the Sea of Trees
16. Ys IV: Mask of the Sun - Battle #58
17. Ys IV: Mask of the Sun - Pass ~ Ruins
18. Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys - OVA Promo
19. Ys V - Scoop!
20. Perfect Collection Ys II - Smile Again
21. Bonus ~ CM Collection

The chapter list in the DVD actually starts with a 38-second track listing various logos before getting to To Make the End of Battle, hence everything being offset by one.
