"I have just installed Plex and finished ripping all of my DVD movies to Video_TS folder onto my computer. How do I load those Video_TS files into Plex for streaming and watching on my Samsung LCD Smart TV. I'll explain my file directory structure:
-Top level folder for the movie is BLOOD_DIAMOND (same as the dvd when inserted)
-Within the BLOOD_DIAMOND folder there's a VIDEO_TS folder
-Within the Video_TS folder there are a bunch of VOB files, and a few BUP and IFO as well.
That's what all of my movies look like. Thanks for any help."
