This article focus on how to play and stream DVD VOB to PS3 through TVersity. If you are just seeking for the way, just read on and you can get what you want. As far as I know, the PS3 can support MPEG-4, H.264, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, AVI, Motion JPEG, AVCHD(.m2ts / .mts), DivX, WMV, VC-1 formats and VOB is basically a MPEG-2 video file which is stored in Video_TS folder in a DVD.
As DVD VOB file usually contains one or several audio tracks and subtitle tracks that are multiplexed together into one stream form, it is not so easy to playback. In order to play VOB videos through PS3 easily with kinds of media devices like WD TV HD Live, TV, Xbox 360 or other DLNA-compatible PCs, you’d better convert DVD VOB to a PS3 widely supported format i.e. MP4.
