Right, how do I get WMC to play the .vob files I ripped with DVDFab 5?
When I point it at the folder containing the VIDEO_TS files it says its empty!
I ripped the DVD then converted it to DivX, but I'm not happy with the quality so I want to play the vob's in WMC

And that will give me lossless playback?
I encoded to DivX but playback wasn't good on my 19" monitor at 1680x1050.
So what res does a 1080p run at? Sorry for stupid Q's
Its what being a newb is all about!
Yes, it's lossless and fairly quick. It just extracts the existing MPEGs that are in the VOB containers to a single MPEG file. If you want the whole DVD without the extraction, you should be able to play the ripped VIDEO_TS folder by this method: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/930526 But I prefer just the main movie.
And I probably should have moved this to our Media Center Forum, as there is more specific info there. Moving you.
Or you can use something like MyMovies and rip your DVDs as ISOs for full playback functionality. I do that for my HTPC at my cabin so I don't have to haul movies back and forth.FB-DIMM are the real cause of global warming
I have now ripped the main movie to my HDD and done the MS support bit. Told WMC where the folder is but it won't find the files. All it shows is two clips already pre-installed.

err..yes. But where?
The other suggestion is a converter. I have a dozen of those. Also, once converted, how do you play them in sequence?
TV Shows as long as they are sXXeXX or another naming sequence metadata scrappers understand, it will put all files in order, either by DVD order or by original broadcast order which ever is on theTVDB.com They are usually one in the same however, like Voltron for instance or M.A.S.K the DVD order is the same as the broadcast (first run) order.Project Digital: Eliminate All Physical Media is finally underway!
