Use QuickTime 7 to preview VOB files in the Finder

USELESS "hint" :
the feature was already there in 10.3.

OS does not matter, all you need is MPEG-2 component.

Difference is in Finder
Authored by: mistersquid on May 26, '05 04:49:14PM

I no longer have a Pre-Tiger system to verify this, but I'm pretty sure that in Tiger the difference is that the FINDER (not just QuickTime Player) can preview VOB files. I did not realize that the MPEG 2 playback component is required, but in any case the Finder, prior to Tiger, did not have this capability.

Being able to scan VOB files from within the finder is very helpful when compiling, for example, a sequence of video clips from DVD content.
