Thread: What to do with VOB, etc. files?

  1. #1
    In downloading movies I sometimes get a folder titled VIDEO_TS. In it are VOB, BUP and IFO files. Figuring these to be the contents of a DVD I copied them to a DVD disc to see if it would play the movie and it doesn't.

    My question is, what do you do with these files?

    Thanks....

    download dvd player software like powerdvd,vlc etc
    either simply play the largesst files or
    burn them and load to program via disc

    I can play the VOB files (I have VLC) but I want to put them on a DVD. I have MyDVD Plus and Roxio. From what I've found out so far it seems the files that came with the VOBs are useless. Is that so? Only the VOBs can be used and they have to be converted to Mpg then back to VOB. Is that the way it works?

    make up two files and name one AUDIO_TS and the other VIDEO_TS then put ALL the files into the VIDEO_TS folder and leave the AUDIO_TS blank.

    Then you copy these using nero etc and you can watch them on your dvd player.

    with downloads that have a video-ts folder (ie bup/ifo/vob files) you would use nero burning rom to burn them, theres a guide on how to do it here http://www.dvd-guides.com/content/view/40/59/ that explains step by step on how to do it.

    Thank you all so very much!!
    The link you gave me, DefianceX, was a keeper. Thanks!

    I did as jackwho suggested. I used Roxio's Drag-to-Disc and just dragged them from my Windows' File Explorer to the icon in my Task bar and BOOM I have a DVD!!! Worked great!! WOOHOO!!

    Thanks

    I read a lot of posts referring to Nero. Is that the burner software to have?

    Nero is ok for some things, and its ok if you just want to copy the contents of a VIDEO_TS folder to make a dvd, but using it to create Dvd's and reencode avi's its pretty useless. It has a tendency to want to reencode everything into its own proprietary format and that sucks. Because of this, if you point it to a video_ts folder it will likely tell you theres not enough room on one disk because it wants to reencode into nero format and make it too big which is ridiculous. If you go into the Ahead folder and find Nero.exe and send a copy to the desktop, you can now start Nero Burning Rom directly without the start smart crap, then select dvd-video on the left and it will setup a blank video_ts folder for you to copy the files from the right pane to the left then select new and as long as the files are not over 4.38gig you can burn.
