Just curious if anyone knows if this thing will natively, or via 3rd party app play VIDEO_TS folders on my WD TV. I googled VIDEO_TS to WD TV, and found many guys have the similar confusion.
Play VIDEO_TS folder on WD TV

“Can WD TV Hub play VIDEO_TS folder? I plan to buy a WD TV Hub HD player box that can hook up external hard drive to play movie from there. Question is does it support to play a folder “Video_TS” or not? I have a lot movies that ripped out in DVD format which is “Video_TS” and “Audio_TS” folder.”

“I have ripped some of my dvd movies to a hard disk and the result is a VIDEO_TS folder. Can WD TV Plus play this folder? There are .VOB files, .IFO and .BUP files also in the folder. Can this media player play this as a continuous movie? I have read the brief manual but cannot find an answer there. It is stated that it can read .VOB files but can it determine in what order? (I think .IFO and .BUP files state the order)”

“When I play a DVD – Live Hub doesn’t work properly. I try to play by clicking on the VIDEO_TS map – it doesn’t play but shows:

VTS_01_0
VTS_01_1
VTS_01_2
VTS_01_3

When I click on VTS_01_1 it plays but stops and then I have to click on VTS_01_2 and so on. Is there a way to solve this?”

Of course, some guys have given the answer. WD TV (Live, Plus, Hub) is NOT a DVD player. It will however play the .vob files in the VIDEO_TS folder. To play the whole VIDEO_TS folder on WD TV smoothly instead of playing multiple .vob file one by one, the best solution would be convert VIDEO_TS to a common video format for your media player. But it would be no DVD menu there anymore. So, before the conversion, you’d better backup your VIDEO_TS if necessary.

First download and install the VIDEO_TS to WD TV Converter. It should be the app helping us finish the DVD VIDEO_TS ripping task.
