how to import dvd (vob) files?
« on: June 15, 2021, 01:31:01 pm »

Hi,
I am new in JRiver. I want to install JRiver on my linux box. After installation, while audio files are imported into the library, but the video files (vob) are not. I tried a couple of things, but none of them works. Anyone can help? Thanks in advance.

Jim

P.S. I got frustrated so I tested the same procedures on Windows, import works without any issue.

Linux MC can't currently handle DVD or BD Images, you'll need to convert them to mkv.

Bob, Thank you very much for the answer. I struggled a little bit for the issue. I have a few hundreds music DVD, convert them to mkv may take a lot time. Can Linux MC 28 handle DVD/BD? What is the plan for future development?

If I do take the convert approach, which is the best and easy way to make mkv conversion.

Thanks.

Media Center on Windows uses the system components to mount and open DVD/BD images so it works there. Which at the moment it can't do on Mac and Linux, including MC28.
