Finding the right DVD copied to sd card video player?


Hi, I have downloaded some videos from DVD to micro sd card, but can't play them and now want to download a player that can play .BUP .IFO .VOB Videos. Even VLC beta does not start up when I opt for the video to play, and I was surprised to find so many files for one video. 3 .BUP 2 .IFO AND 3 .VOB

There are 20 important DVD videos there for me. Hope you have the player for me.

Free or paid is ok.

I looked up VOB and found HD Video Player Free by October 31 inc, downloaded it and it works well and looks great, user friendly list of all VOB files. Good.

The app has crashed and until I find one that works, I have marked the thread as unsolved. Or maybe the paid version is better?

Well I tried HD Video player and at first it worked but now has stopped. So I uninstalled it.
I installed Samsung's own Tab Player, it also worked, but won't open the next day. Maybe it is just not stable, second attempt and it is working.

VOB is the oldest video file type, it may be necessary to change them into other file types with another application.

These comments are for learning purposes only. Copying copyrighted media is against the law in many countries.

How were those .vob files dumped from dvd?
Did you use something that used libdvdcss? If not the video's will be scrambled and unplayable. If you copied the .vob files from the dvd over to the card then the video's will be scrambled and unplayable.
If you have libdvdcss installed, an example would be
Code:
mplayer dvd://1 -dumpstream -dumpfile video.vob
Will dump title 1 on the dvd to video.vob

Do a search on how DVD's work and,
libdvdcss
ffmpeg
mplayer
lsdvd
xine
totem
vlc

A .vob file from a dvd is usually mpeg2 video and ac3 audio.

what i do is create an iso of the dvd using something like:
Code:
dd if=/dev/dvd of=moo-vee.bak.iso
vlc moo-vee.bak.iso
