Let’s assume you already know how to rip DVD’s to your hard drive. The question now becomes “How do I play .VOB files on my PC”. Well fortunately a little freeware program called VLC comes in extremely handy for doing this exact thing. For those who don’t have VLC you can download it for free at http://download.cnet.com/VLC-Media-Player/3000-13632_4-10267151.html Now that you have VLC installed on your computer what you want to do is start the program and now click Media, select Open Disk under the drop down menu, and then click the Browse button to find the folder which contains your .VOB files. Once you’ve selected the folder which stores your .VOB click OK and then Play. Voila! The copy of your ripped DVD should now be playing.
