They are DVD files.
Double click the the Video_TS file, and the default player should open.
However if you have Windows Media player 9 or less it won't play, you
need vers 10 that can be downloaded from Microsoft, but be aware that
there have been some "no sound" issues with this version. Best to
download any DVD player...e.g. Power DVD...Google for "DVD player" and
you should get plenty of free one's to pick from.
