I have a DVD (not copyright protected) from which I have copied the contents to my hard drive. The contents include two folders - one named \AUDIO_TS and the other named \VIDEO_TS. The \VIDEO_TS folder includes files with the extension .IFO, .BUP, and several with the extension .VOB.
I would like to be able to play this video from its location on my hard-drive without requiring the actual DVD. I just downloade/installed the free version of realplayer. In Realplayer, I have tried to open each of these files (.IFO, .BUP, and .VOB) and then clicked "Play", but with each filetype, RealPlayer crashes.
I was wondering if anyone can tell me (1) am I doing something wrong or does RealPlayer just not support the video format I am trying to play. Also, (2) would the premium version of Realplayer allow me to do what I want. And if not (3) is there any other software that you would recommend?
Thanks in advance,
