As far as I know it's not possible to stream and play ISO/VOB/IFO formats directly on my PS3 (DLNA/UPnP) without modding
This would be a great addition to the PS3. For me it would mean cleaning out my livingroom of all DVD's/BluRays and putting them on one big NAS.
Come on Sony let's get busy ..... you would do me a big favour
Panasonic SCPT850 Home Cinema
Sony Playstation 3 60GB
Not realy likely As VOB is the extension for DVD only. as already posted else were MPG is the extension used for Mpeg2 files when not on DVD. Mpeg2 Video is already playable, the other files are needed purely for the DVD player software. Real DVD recorders also spit recordings in to multi VOB files, its just how DVD works.
I know that this is old but you can use PS3MediaServer. You can have ISO files stored anywhere on your computer. Navigate via your PS3 to the ISO file.
PS3MediaServer will open up the ISO file and show you all of the main Movie Files. Select the one with the longest time (which is normally your movie) and bam.
PS3MediaServer has an option to auto add the subtitles which works. You can switch this on and off.
Since you don't have the menu, you press the square button (Scene Search) and then change the time interval to like 2 or 5 minutes. And you can use this to pick a scene you want to see.
DVD's are already on a media server and i gatta say it's prolly more work for me to re convert them from IFO format to something that will play than it is for Sony to do a system update to and allow these features to work
Let the others come after us. We welcome the chase

Sony dont have to do anything Media server software is not there developement area.
