VRO (DVD Video Recording File)

The VRO Video file format

VRO is the file extension assigned to a special kind of video file. It allows for the real-time streaming of DVD discs. It can also be used for video recordings made by certain camcorders. Contrary to disk image or project files, the VRO contains the actual audio and video data. However, the DVD player needs an IFO file in order to find the file location of the VRO file and open it.

Technical details of VRO files

While there are a few programs that can open VRO files, it is seldom used. Usually, it is converted into a more accessible and usable VOB file. In some instances, the VRO file can be made more accessible by renaming the file extension to MPG. This will not change the overall structure of the file but might enable other programs to open it. If that does not work, the file extension should be renamed to its original VRO form.
