Q: I have downloaded a VIDEO_TS folder from a torrent site. But the VIDEO_TS folder has various .IFO, .BUP, .VOB files. How can I convert the VIDEO_TS folder into something like MP4 or AVI watchable on my computer?
Q: I am trying to post my DVD to YouTube, but the .vob file needs the other files in the VIDEO_TS folder so I can't just upload the .vob file. I wander if there is a program that can let me convert the whole folder into one MKV or WMV file.
Q: Bought a movie in DVD from a local library which I copied in a blank DVD-RW disc. It didn't copy as a movie file just like a data disc did. So now, I want to convert the VIDEO_TS file into any of the media formats (AVI/MPEG/MOV/WMV). But I don't know how to do that.
A DVD movie usually has two directories - VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS. AUDIO_TS folder is a file folder where DVD-Audio would be stored, but usually the folder is empty. And VIDEO_TS folder is a file folder containing all data for a DVD movie. There are three kinds of VIDEO_TS files inside the folder which are required to play a DVD movie: VIDEO_TS.IFO, VIDEO_TS.BUP, and VIDEO_TS.VOB.
VIDEO_TS.VOB - Video and audio data.
VIDEO_TS.IFO - Configuration files with information like menus, subtitles, aspect ratio, languages etc.
VIDEO_TS.BUP - Backup of the information.
