I have a Video DVD and for faster access I have copied the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders to a folder in my Hard Disk. Now, what software can I use to treat this folder as if I am watching the video on DVD. Now, there are multiple tracks, therefore simply expecting to open a single video file will not do the job.

Edit: I intend to make this work on Windows XP SP3.

Just download the VLC Media Player and install it. And right click on the folder you want to watch the movies from and click on option Play with VLC media player and it will work like you are watching DVD with enable a title button to go back on title menu.


The title menu button will only available if it is a DVD folder with the title menu otherwise you will able to just go on next movie in folder as in DVD.

There are several programs that can play your files back as mentioned here. With Windows media player, you should be able to

  1. Launch Windows Media Player.
  2. Select Open from the File menu.
  3. Choose "Any file (.)" from the Files of type drop-down list. And then select the VIDEO_TS.IFO file, in the VIDEO_TS folder under the folder with the same name as the movie (For example, it's "F:\temp\HOLLOWMAN\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO" in the illustration above). And then click OK when you are done.
