Is there a player for this?
Have looked at the get packages, but didn't find anything.

"MPlayer is a movie player which runs on many systems (see the documentation). It plays most MPEG/VOB"
from: http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design6/info.html

You can get mplayer here:

You also might want all the codecs if you have lot of free space:

I have been using gxine to play .vob files just drag file onto the play icon on the desktop.
for improved picture try downloading xine_unichrome.pup (so far it has worked on every machine I have tried including a old laptop)

http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Multimedia/xine-unichrome.pup

mplayer is cool too.
Code:
mplayer dvd://1 -chapter 2-49 -dumpstream -dumpfile /mnt/sda1/movies/dk.vob

saves the vob to harddrive.
first title dvd://1 (normal for most dvds)
chapters 2-49, skips ads and production info. Then ignores the lenghty credits. adjust as needed.
As it is producing the vob on the harddrive you can drag the growing vob onto gxine and view. Saves battery power, since DVD player is not waiting on playback. Of course the vob file takes alot of space so delete it when done viewing Wink Wink
of course mplayers' sister called mencoder can also convert to avi.
Code:
mencoder dk.vob  -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=1 -oac copy -o /dev/null
mencoder dk.vob  -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:mbd=2:trell:vpass=2 -oac copy -aid 128 -o dk.avi

welcome to the power of linux!

Ted where did you get mencoder for puppy?

I searched for it before and couldn't find it. I didn't think it came with the mplayer pup and I found I had to compile mplayer from CVS to get it. I was going to get around to it after I located all the dependancies, but would love an alternative. I use mencoder on windows current (right now infact).
