Playing ripped movies continously on VLC player


If you ripped an entire DVD, then you should be able to point VLC to the root folder containing the VIDEO_TS folder and it should start playing your ripped DVD from its menu system just like if you were watching it on your television.

Otherwise, you will have to create a playlist to play files in order.

How to rip a DVD easily


DVDs contain folders and files which are specially developed for DVD players and not for computers.<br /> If you explore the DVD on your computer, you see on most DVDs the folders Video_TS and Audio_TS. The folder Audio_TS is on video DVDs empty. This folders is normally used for audio DVDs.<br /> If you open the folder Video_TS you see that the extensions of the files in it are .vob, .ifo and .bup. The .vob files are actually the .mpeg or video files and only these files contain video. The .ifo files contain information like scenes and time. The .bup files are backup files of the .ifo files. These files aren't relevant for computers.<br /> If you double click a .vob file and you do not have any DVD player installed on your computer, the computer says that it can not open the file. But there is a trick to do let your computer play this file.<br /> The trick to play this file is to copy the .vob files to a folder on your hard drive. The next thing you need to do is to change the file extension into .mpg.<br /> Do not change the name of the file but be sure you change the extension of it!<br /> If you copy the .vob file and you change the extension in .mpg, there is no guarantee that it works. This depends on the codecs you have installed on your computer. But often this trick will work.<br /> So what is the solution if the above doesn't work? The following I will show you <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/dvdvideoguide/how-to-rip-a-dvd.html">how to rip a dvd</a>.<br /> Step 1: Download <a href="http://www.freedvdripper.org/">best free dvd ripper</a> and running it. click "Add".

Then you can get a cup of coffee and come back later to check if the conversion is finished.

DVD s to HD


Hi!

Its not that easy as is sounds to do that.
First of all there is probably some protection on the dvd that wont allow you to copy it, therefor you need to crack that protection

Second, you need to remake that dvd to an "img" file, the dvd contains two folders as it is now, one called Audio TS and one called Video Ts, you need to remake those to an IMG file, that you can do in Nero

Third, you need a program to mount up the IMG file so you can play it, for that you need a program like Deamon Tools or any similiar program.

So if you manage to do all above, every time you going to play that dvd you must mount it in Deamon ( or any similiar program), you cant just copy it and press play and watch it.
The hard thing is to crack the protection on a dvd since there is so many diferent of them out there.

Good luck

Play Blu-ray movie with HDTV DVD Combo ? Burning Blu-ray to DVD


HDTV DVD Combo features a built-in slot-loading DVD player, which provides an optimum way to save space. With the slim profile, it’s really an amazing experience to watch favorites TV shows and DVD movies on this device in your bedroom. But if your TV only has a standard DVD player but not the Blu-ray disc player, what is your solution to play Blu-ray movies on it? I'd like to know your ideas. I believe my way is somewhat helpful, just convert BD to a DVD format, and then burn it to a blank DVD for playback on the TV/DVD Combo, so share it here, and also be glad to hearing from you guys.

The software I used is as below:
- (http://www.pavtube.com/blu-ray-ripper/ ) Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper
- (http://www.videohelp.com/tools/ReJig) ReJig (freeware)
- (http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/ImgBurn/1128426215/) ImgBurn(freeware)

HOW-TO:
Part 1:
Firstly, use Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper to remove copy protections of Blu-ray movies, and meanwhile convert it to the DVD vob format.
1. Run Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper and click "DVD Rom", "DVD Folder" or "IFO/ISO" to load Blu-ray movies. Generally speaking, the file with the longest duration time would be the main movie, if you just need back up the main movie, tick off this one only.
Each file will be checked by default after imported, right click on any one of the files, and then there will be a popup window to let you uncheck all, just do it, and afterwards to tick off the checkbox before the file you need converted.

2. Click on the drop-down menus after "Subtitle" and "Audio" respectively to select your required languages and sound effect.
3. Select VOB as output format and specify destination folder
Click on the pull down list of "Format" to select VOB as output format and click on the folder icon at the opposite side of "Output" to specify destination folder.

4. Customize output settings
The popup window will allow you to adjust audio and video parameters including codec, bit rate, aspect ratio, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channels to optimize the output file quality.

5. Click on "Convert" button to start BD ripping
Once finished, you can find out the output files via clicking on "Open" button with ease.

Part 2:
Then use ReJig to do DVD authoring.

It's pretty simple with ReJig. Press "File Mode"; add your vob files and Demux.

When it's finished, close that box and then select DVD Author. Add the video and audio files you've just created, and choose output destination folder, and click Create.

After DVD authoring is completed, you can open the destination folder to see that the output files are AUDIO-TS and VIDEO-TS folders, which are the correct structure for DVD burning.

Part 3:
Use ImgBurn to burn DVD
We have got VIDEO-TS folder in part two, so the DVD burning process with ImgBurn is pretty simple. Here give you two links to check the detailed steps:
(http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=4632 ) How to write DVD Video files directly to single layer media using ImgBurn (DVD±R/RW)
(http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=4643) How to write a DVD Video double layer disc using ImgBurn (Verbatim DVD+R DL) – just check the contents that start from adding VIDEO-TS folder of this guide.
The end! Hope this helps.
