How to change a Dat file so I can open it on my Samsung tablet

DAT is a file extension that's mostly found on video CD. It is usually used to store MPEG-1 encoded video on VCD. This kind of video file is file format that are not playable in the default Android video player.
But don't worry, there are ways to make it playable. In this article, I'll show you how to play DATvideo file on your Android device.
To be able to play DAT video file in your Android device, you should need the help of a third-partyvideo player app. In this case, I suggest you to use MX player.
MX player is one of the most popular video players that can play almost every video format. It also play all resolutions that supported by your device.
If you don't have one, you can download it for free at Google play store.
Once installed, open the DAT video file with your file manager app and the video should be loaded and played by the MX player. However, you're unable to load DAT video file on 'My files' or 'Gallery' app, as well as 'MX player'. To be able to open DAT video file directly from your Gallery app or MX player, you should rename the file extension from .DAT to .MPG. For example, filename.dat change to filename.mpg. Once you're done, the video will appear on your MX player list and you can now play the video file on your Android device.

Is setup.exe.vbe safe to run?

probably not. .vbe means Visual Basic Encoded script. It seems as though someone tried to camouflage their script with a familiar filename (by prepending setup.exe in front of it. Is this on a CD or a file you received in email or downloaded?

What I do is download the klite codec mega pack and be sure to check Windows Media Player as one of the players to use it on when you download klite in the configurations. Or you can go and get VLC media player which has all the codecs you will need to play these files. This is what I use. So I know it works. Here are the links below. I hope that this assisted you. Thanks for using FixYa! John

1. Klite Codecs
2. VLC Media Player

Visual basic

What exactly do you want to do?

There are a lot of easy way is to control the mplayer app. This is a VBS script...

WshShell.Run "wmplayer.exe"
Setup a Scripting File System Object like "set oFSO=createobject("scripting.filesystemobject")"

Then use "WshShell.SendKeys" to send the keystrokes to the player

Another way is...

To embed the media then use Active X calls, which would requie visual basic.
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
Handles Button1.Click
Const DATA_FILE_EXTENSION As String = ".mp3"
Dim dlgFileDialog As New OpenFileDialog
With dlgFileDialog
.FilterIndex = 1
.RestoreDirectory = True
If .ShowDialog() = DialogResult.OK Then
'Play the sound file
Me.AxWindowsMediaPlayer1.URL = dlgFileDialog.FileName
End If
End With
End Sub
