Stream vob files to samsung

Post by Warmup » Mon Oct 25, 2010 7:47 pm

Hope someone smart in here can help me.
I've ripped a dvd to normal dvd structure ie "video_ts" folders. and i can get them files to show up on my tv media-player menu.
And everythings starts perfect but when in the menu i can't select/ access the menu items ?
Would be nice if i could add subtitles and stuff like that from the menu.

TV: Samsung Le40b750
Twonky 5.1.6

Thanks

A DVD is made up of the VOB files containing MPEG-2 video/sound and the IFO files that contain all of the extra information such as chapters etc. Twonky only streams the VOB files so you don't get all of the "glue" that holds the VOB files together and creates the DVD structure and navigation.
