    Good afternoon all. I need to play a VOB video on my Passport. Tried downloading VCL from Amazon App Store and can not set it up to work. Stuck on scanning. Does anyone know of a player that works on our Passports? APK maybe? Thanks in advance,

    Try Star Player from BBW.

    I know that the paid app Kalemsoft will play vob but that won't really help you unless you purchase it.

    Still interested to know if Star plays a vob file - can you let us know? Probably not as it may just borrow from the native player - don't know??

    Well gents, VLC from F-Droid plays the VOB file. The Try Star Player could not see it. Thanks for the help much appreciated!

    Also, playing the VOB video on VLC did not heat the device!

    Star Player is native.

    Excellent Spread sheet! Thank you,

    PS - How often is it updated?

    Kalemsoft Media Player is also native and is only $3.99 but this late in the game it's a tough sell.

    Curious if it would have worked to merely change the file extension to a different format that the native player would understand? For example, WhatsApp voice messages are saved as OPUS files, which the native player won't recognize. If I rename then to WAV for instance, they play just fine.

    Thought about that too, sadly above my pay scale!

    It's easy - with the file on your PC just right click, scroll down the pop-up window to "rename" then change out .vob to .wav or .avi etc. If it's no good just change the name back to .vob.

    It's actually pretty easy, just locate the file in your file manager, long press said file until overflow menu opens, tap Properties, then select Rename at the bottom of the screen. You can then change to any format you like.
