A cliebt want's us to put a Video file on their web site. It's a VOB video file.

Is there a way to play this through a browser? Does it have to be converted to wmv?

I can't figure out how to play it on my Windows XP Media Center machine.

Hello rkorts,
You could convert them to flv and then use a flash player that is supported by your web browser and then play the video...

Hi rkorts,

You need to convert the VOB to something else first, like an mpg.

Once you have it in a different video format, look into WinFF to go to FLV.

Once you have it as FLV, you should be in good shape.
