Dale is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Playing DVD's from Hard Drive

I have 2 TB of Movies / concerts. Each movie / concert is in its own folder ..ie f:\movie_name\video_ts. Can BS Player import the folder names into a list, and if so, can I select from that folder name list to play the movie. Also, can I play the movie by default on a second monitor, leaving controls on the default monitor.

Any input here is welcome

thanks

In BSplayer playlist you can add an entire folder (right-click in playlist window -> Add directory -> remember to select the Recurse subdirectoris checkbox)
Same thing in BSplayer MediaLibrary (Video -> Add folder)

You can create different playlist for different paths and manage them from the MediaLibrary left pane, or from Playlist's dropdown menu

You can start a movie, drag the video window to the second monitor and disable the option "Don't remember movie window position" (CTRL+P -> Video -> General -> disabled by default)

I just select VIDEO_TS.IFO and the DVD on the hard disk will play like a charm. I create links to the VIDEO_TS.IFO files for my DVDs on the hard disk to provide easy access to my movies

@Hillbilly: If I remember correctly you're a Pro-user isn't it?

But probably Dale is not, and so he can't reproduce his DVD files as you can do with BSplayer Pro

Sorry Tizio, in my infinite ignorance I thought that to play DVDs, from polycarbonate, HDD or wherever, BS Player Pro was the solution. All that mucking around to watch a movie, ugh!
I put my movies on HDD for ease of use and convenience.
I am also in the process of converting my movies to .mkv - good quality, smaller and you don't need the Pro version. Takes a little time is the downer. Almost a tick in every box

From now on I will bow out and let the convoluted experts reign supreme.

Cheers

Why not use some other free video conversion software like SUPER to convert VOB to other video files like avi wmv, windows media player or windows movie maker can play these files without problem:)

Well, so can BS.Player, but that's not the real topic of this thread, is it? BS.Player Pro can also play DVD's "DVD-style", whereas BS.Player Free is able to play the individual VOB-files. If one puts these VOB's in a playlist, the entire movie will be shown in one go (as one would expect).
