Playing .vob on PS3

4 Replies 582 Views Created 25-03-2008
hi, i just backed up my copy of The Simpsons DVD on my ps3.

when browsing my videofiles on the PS3 i can't find the folder with the vob's in...

Can't the ps3 play those files? Cause they are the same as on my dvd, i did not convert, only backup.

thanks in advance

Wont work mate, you need to rip the dvd into a single .vob then convert it to mp4/divx/avc.

nah, i don't do conversions, takes too much time & hassle.

think i just won't backup anymore and watch from dvd.

seems stupid though, it can read vob from dvd but not from HDD...

VOBs are MPGs. If you give the files MPG extensions they usually play

yeah, rename the .vob to a .mpg... works a treat!
