Don't play as individual VOB files, open the VIDEO_TS folder with VLC or OS X's DVD Player (from the File menu -> Open DVD Media) or drag the folder onto DVD Player's icon in the Dock.

I tried this, but it still stops immediately. I don't know what to do to fix the problem.

Re: Dvd9 player osx

Which torrent is the material from ? It sounds like it's not downloaded properly or the authoring is duff if it displays the same problems with VLC and DVD Player.

You could try opening the first large VOB with MPEG Streamclip. It will ask you if you want to open as a DVD etc. If it still chokes try telling Streamclip not to open as a DVD but to open all the VOBs in the set as one (let it fix timebreaks). If that gives a functioning video you can save as MPEG-2 (no transcoding) and re-author it yo'self.
