Hi Vinoth,


Thank you for posting your query in the Microsoft Community forum.


Based on the above description, it appears that you’re unable to .VOB files on Windows media player.


I am afraid to inform you that above multimedia file type are not supported by Windows Media Player.

However, I would suggest you to install a codec to play the file. A codec is software that is used to compress or decompress a digital media file, such as a song or video.


For information on Codec’s you may refer the below link:



Using Third Party Software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Third Party Software can be solved. Using Third Party Software is at your own risk.
