Q: "Right now, I am only able to play individual titles that are included inside a VIDEO_TS folder from a ripped DVD. Is there a way to play this folder as a whole? Or any way to play these ripped DVDs as a single .mov movie?"
A: A Video_TS folder that stores multiple VOB, BUP, and IFO files is typically found on the root directory of a DVD disc and contains all the data necessary to play the movie on a DVD player.
I bet many people have lots of DVD backups with VIDEO_TS directory. While this format is still commonly used for storing 1:1 intact DVD content and is a popular choice among DVD enthusiasts, it can be challenging to play a Video_TS folder on many modern devices, due to compatibility issues.
MOV, on the other hand, is a popular multimedia format that is compatible with many devices and editing software. If you have a Video_TS folder and want to convert it to MOV, this guide will walk you through the process step by step.
