There are certain formats like image files like ISO or IFO, folder structures such as VIDEO_TS or BDMV or some VIDEO_TS.VOB files from DVD folder that the Plex Media Server does not supports. Here is a guide on how to deal with video files in Video_TS/VOB/ISO/IFO/BDMV formats using Plex.
In fact, Video_TS/VOB/ISO/IFO/BDMV are “cloning” the structure and content from a DVD or Blu-Ray optical disc. You can play your files on Blu-ray, DVD Player or VLC Player, however these formats hide content behind built-in menu systems which just don’t fit into Plex Media Server.
In order to play Video_TS/VOB/ISO/IFO/BDMV via Plex Media Server, you have to convert them into the Plex friendly format like MP4.
To finish the task quickly and easily, Brorsoft Video Converter Ultimate is highly recommended. With it, you can convert ISO/IFO/Video_TS/VOB/BDMV to Plex supported video formats with fast encoding speed and excellent output quality. Besides that, you can rip DVD/Blu-ray discs as well as convert AVI/MKV/MPG/TiVo/VOB/FLV, etc. to optimized video for playback on iPad, iPod, iPhone, iRiver, Blackberry, Xbox 360, Sony PS3, PS4 and more. If you’re a Mac user, you can turn to Brorsoft iMedia Converter for Mac (MacOS High Sierra included), which has the same function as the Windows version. Now download the program and follow the step-by-step guide to use Video_TS/ISO/IFO/VOB/BDMV files with Plex freely.
Step 1. Load Video_TS/VOB/ISO/IFO/BDMV files
Launch the ideal Plex video converter ultimate. Click “Load file(s)” button on the main interface to load ISO, IFO, Video_TS, BDMV and other disk image formats to the program. Of course, you can click “Add video” button to load common video formats. (Drag&Drop function is included.)
Step 2. Select output format
