Is there a setting in WINDVD 8 that allows you to associate .vob files with
that app?

Right click on .vob file, choose "Open With" then click on "choose default
program". If WINDVD is not one of the options then you will have to use the
"Browse" button to point the OS at your app (WINDVD8.EXE or similar) and
ensure "always use the selected program to open this type of file" is
ticked.

Of course they can be played directly IF you have the right player
associated with the file type VOB. Media Player will likely just nag
it can't play it because it is STUPID. The question becomes why would
anyone want to play VOB files individually? It defeats the whole idea
behind having them on a DVD!

Hint: Try VLC Media Player. Associate the file type .VOB with it. Now
pop in a DVD. It will play normally allowing you to click on chapters
if it has them, thus jumping back and forth between titles. If you
insist on playing some VOB on the DVD or just on your system directly,
open in Windows Explorer, click on any of the VOB files in the
Video_TS folder (if playing a DVD) and that particular file will play.

This is all very basic Windows stuff. What I always find amusing is so
many really know next to nothing on how to use/set-up Windows.

Windows being basically a dumb OS, it can do little by itself. With
Vista you often need to TELL it what to do when it sees a particular
file type. The irony is even when Vista understands the file type it
still may refuse to do anything with it! Smarter applications simply
play file types they understand without you needing to fiddle around.
Windows always stumbled with certain file types and often needs to be
taught. Vista still hasn't learned what to do in many situations. Well
maybe once Vista bloats to some one trillion line monster, instead of
the current "tiny" 50,000,000 lines of code it is rumored to have now,
maybe it will get a little smarter.

Hi Dave
This is what I call a stupid answer and a useless waste of bandwidth.
Please read the question carefully first and then answer whenever you have
something usefull to say.

Hi Nish,

Sorry dude no more solutions. This could probably be solved with a registry
hack but I'm not fully familiar with Vista's registry. In the meantime try a
Google search or hopefully someone more knowledgeable will have the
solution. Good luck.

Hi I have a problem here,
My system config is as below

Intel core 2 quad Q6600,
Gigabyte P35-DQ6
corsair twinx 2024 RAM
Seagate Barracuda 320GB
Lite-on 20X DVD writer (SATA)

I have installed XP sp2 with Media player 9 and Nero 8 with essentials. When I play the .vob file I am able to see the picture but no sound. Where as I am able to play other media files like .Dat,.mpg,.mp3,.wmv,.wma. but not the .vob
