Hello all,

I am looking for some help.
I have a MacBook Air and I am trying to download family videos from DVD to my hard-drive to watch and save.

I can view the videos, but when I download the files from the DVD to my computer I end up with a "video TS" file which contains many "BUP", "INFO", and "VOB" files.

All of these are unplayable as far as I can tell.

I have tried to import these files to iVideo, but it doe snot seem to work.

Any and all help is much appreciated!

Thank you!
John

Grab VLC.

Just point it to the video_ts folder.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

I would recommend ripping the DVDs to the hard drive using HandBrake. It will give you a single file which you can play, import into iTunes, and even sync to an iPod/iPad. It will also allow you to reduce the file size of each video to something more manageable since space is usually at a premium on a MBA.

I'd also recommend downloading VLC player. It's a must have because it plays just about every file type out there.

You can also try Cinematize, which transcodes the DVD to quicktime files, even divided by chapters.
cheers,

I drank what?
