    :hiya: Have a lot of dvd's ripped to hard disc for use with medial portal on my htpc but would like to access these for the children with a streamium sl300. They have been ripped with dvd shrink to folders with audio ts and video ts sub folders and then vts files in the video ts folder. The sl300 will read vobs but it will not playback my files anyone got any ideas.

    You would normally put EVERYTHING in the Video folder and then launch. there should be nothing in the audio.

    Cheers

    no there is'nt anything in the audio folder i think you misred my post ( this something of a legacy to do with older dvd players). The problem is that the streamium does not play the vts folders which are essentially vob files.

    There's nothing specifically stated in the Streamium's spec to say that it should play VOBs - I know it says MPEG1 & 2 but maybe it has a problem with VOB's specifically?

    If i back up a dvd using shrink i get;

    VOB - video & audio
    IFO - which is the binary control file for the relevant VOB (these have DVDVIDEO-VTS in the header and can be read using IfoEdit. there is a link on www.doom9.org)
    BUP - these are backup copies of the IFO incase they get corrupt

    They should be numbered as follows;

    Volume in drive N is DATA
    Volume Serial Number is C836-76A6

    Each IFO/BUP should have a corresponding VOB (if you have asked to split files >1GB they you will have more). This the case with files above for VIDEO_04_x.VOB. In my example the film has not been "shrunk" as it is over 4.5GB so would not fit on a DVD-5/single layer blank disk.

    If you wish to play the film of the hard disk from the beginning open VIDEO_TS.IFO which is the control file for the whole film. Opening any other .IFO will only play the part of the film that IFO knows about.
