I have quite a few DVDs on a data drive ripped into Video_TS folders. All of them played fine in XP...in either Windows Media Player, Nero (6) Showtime, or PowerDVD (v5). Whatever program I used, the DVDs played fine.
Enter Win 7 Pro 64 bit.
WMC chokes completely on these files...*sometimes* playing the audio track of one, but normally just choking hard. WMP plays some of them...but will not play others.
As I said, under XP, WMP played them all...as did PowerDVD and Nero Showtime.
I tried installing the "full" version of the K-Lite codec pack, but the situation did not seem to change in any way. I wonder...did WMP support change that much...or was I getting codecs that I need now from either Nero Showtime or PowerDVD when I was using XP? Hmmm.
I understand that I could rip as ISO or covert to other formats, but that's not the kind of help I am looking for here. I am wondering if someone knows how to get either (or preferably both) WMC or WMP player to work with such Video_TS files. I can play them now using Media Player Classic from K-Lite...but I really prefer the interfaces of WMP and WMC.
Anyway...any (non-conversion) advice/insight is appreciated. Thanks!
