Lads, listen to Spuddy. do what he suggested and you can play ISO file movie w/o extracting or doing much then just open the file and watch the movie. Not sure about the quality of the picture ... but it works.
So I have an iso of a game and I used Daemon-Tools Lite to install it. That worked fine. But when I try to play the game it asks me to insert the DVD into the drive. I have mounted the image as H: with Daemon Tools, but for some reason the game check does not recognize that the image is mounted.
You mention DVD so you need a decoder software such as Power dvd to play the movie.
Just mount the iso image in Daemon tools then use your decoder to point to your virtual drive or any player such as Media player or Divx to play the file.
Use Daemont tools or Alcohol 120% to create virtual DVD drive
mount your Iso file to virtual drive
You can watch movie, explore, copy files just like your actual DVD player. To burn to DVD disc you need DVD burner installed.
If you still can’t play movie after correctly followed all step, u might need video codec install to your system.
you can find all @ oldapps.com
EVERYONE READ THIS ---->
you can just download “vlc player” for free and play and open any dvd iso and watch it. I just found this out after spending hours trying different aproaches and difficult software that wanted money. Hope to save some people some hours.. cheers
Extract the iso with free 7zip
Or to extract a bunch use something the following commands in a batch file to list them, extract and (gulp) delete.
REM make list of DVD images under the folder with batch file
dir %~dp0*.iso /s /b>%temp%\MyIsos.txt
dir %~dp0*.img /s /b>>%temp%\MyIsos.txt
REM all one line. Remove & del "%%V” if you’re testing...
for /f “delims=*" %%v in (%temp%\MyIsos.txt) do md "%%v\..\VIDEO_TS” & cd "%%v\..\VIDEO_TS” & “C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe” x -y -tiso "%%v” & del "%%V"
You can use the VLC Player to watch the DVD in the ISO format. Make sure you have the latest version 1.1.2. Otherwise you can extract the ISO to the two folders Audio_TS and Video_TS and double click on the .ifo file which is the DVD Menu in most cases and your default media player will play it like a regular dvd (WMP, WINAMP, Media Player Classic, VLC Player)
To burn the image of the disc.
Then, install it, and tell it that you want to burn image to disc.
4.35GB or below you’ll need a DVD5 or you CAN use a DVD9. Though with a DVD9 (DL), you’ll have a lot of room left as it’s 8.5GB in size.
For 8.5GB and above 4.35GB of data, you’ll be using a DVD9 (DL)..
As for mounting the image into a virtual drive on your PC without having to pay. Try Daemontools lite.
