    Hey, I just joined recently and the boards look really organized I'll try to enjoy my stay here..

    I'm having trouble with a torrent I just downloaded, it was a movie. When it finished I opened the folder and it had a bunch of different.

    ".BUP" ".IFO" and ".VOB"

    These were the different file types found in the folder, there are about 20 different files with these file types next to there names.

    Can anyone give me any info on these? I would really like to watch my movie but I have really no idea where to go to now.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try just using the DVD Player app and choose File > Open DVD Media and then just select the folder, it should work just fine. otherwise the vobs are the movie fils, but they aren't always in the right order.

    It says:

    "There was a problem opening the media"

    "This Media type is not supported"

    Any idea?

    hmm... that's odd maybe make sure that you are using the VIDEO_TS folder and just drag it onto the App icon. Or you could try VLC using the same method, but other that that, I don't know.

    Whats VLC?

    and in the movie folder it isn't a Video_TS folder, its just 3 files.

    Video_TS.BUP
    Video_TS.IFO
    Video_TS.VOB

    and also thanks for the help so far.
