    Hey all,
    I just finished downloading a live concert that has been converted to DVD format. It is a .md5 file with another folder with about 6-8 other files. I can't check the extensions on those as I'm not at my home computer. How do I play this video? My computer does not have a DVD drive or DVD software, so I assume after I mount the image I'll have to get that figured out, too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    the .md5 file is a message digest, intended to ensure the integrity of the files you received, not the video

    you want to play the .vob file

    For future reference, http://filext.com is a good site to look up file extensions and what porgrams maybe needed.
