A DVD that can be played in a regular DVD player has a specific file structure, and contains a Video_TS and an Audio_TS folder with a set of specific file types. If you have ever backed up a DVD to your computer, or have attempted to create a DVD that can play in a regular DVD player, then you are likely familiar with the file structure. If you have a Video_TS folder stored on your Windows 7 computer's hard drive, play the video files in that folder using Window 7's default media player.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Browse to the Video_TS folder on your PC, then double-click the folder to open it.

  2. 2

    Click the "Organize" drop-down menu at the top left corner of the window, then click "Folder and search options."

  3. 3

    Click the "View" tab at the top of the window, then remove the check mark from the box next to "Hide extensions for known file types."

  4. 4

    Click "Apply" and "OK."

  5. 5

    Right-click on any of the files with a ".vob" file extension.

  6. 6

    Click "Open with," then click "Choose default program."

  7. 7

    Click the arrow next to "Other programs," then click "Windows Media Player."

  8. 8

    Click "OK" to begin playing your Video_TS files.

Tips and warnings

  • You can select any ".vob" file in the Video_TS folder to begin playing the DVD video. Each of the files are linked to one another, so you can click the "DVD" drop-down menu at the bottom of the Windows Media Player window and click "Root menu" or "Title menu" to go to the DVD's menu screen.
