    So I ripped a DVD to my PC and I really do not want to burn it to a DVD or use toast to make an image of it.

    I have about 6 .VOB files in a folder and individually they play great with VLC player.

    BUT, I have to get up after each .VOB file ends and start the next one.

    Is there any thing out there that will play all the .VOB files in a sequence?

    Are the VOB files all you have? If you ripped a DVD properly you should have a VIDEO_TS folder which encloses them and has a few other files in it as well.

    Just do "Open Disc" instead of file while in VLC, and select the Video_TS folder.

    Keep them. You can also use Apple's DVD player to play them. File -> Open media -> VIDEO_TS folder.

    You can do the same in DVD player and just open the Video_TS file

    I am currently using Mac OS 10.5.8, and experienced a similar situation with .vob files.

    Neither VLC nor pre-installed media player functioned. Why it didn't is a mystery.

    MPlayer was then attempted and it functioned. This seems a viable option should the same problem occur for anybody else.

    Any theories of why VLC didn't work for me?

    VLC Streamer and VOB files problems

    Problems to stream a film when I have all VOB files in the VIDEO_TS directory.
    From the pad it says Couldn´t contact your computer - please ty again.
    If I do it from the iMac in the VLS Streamer "Add movies" it only highlights one an one .vob file which goes al right to make a stream of, BUT I WANT THE complete movie. If the movie is a .mkv file it workes ok.
    Anyone have a good tip???
    If I from the iPAD select one .VOB file in he TS cataloge it stansform this singe file - so there is nothing wrong with the conection.
