What Is IFO?

If you are a DVD lover, you must be certainly aware of IFO. Actually, IFO is the name for a DVD Information File which stores all the relevant information that is necessary for a DVD player to know if it is to play a DVD video or audio. Generally speaking, each DVD consists of three types of files, VOB, IFO and BUP. All the files are located in “VIDEO_TS” directory at the root of a DVD. Among them, IFO usually works with VOB or VRO files which contain the actual audio and video data. Its purpose is to tell DVD players what screen to show at start-up, where each chapter starts, where audio tracks are located on DVD, etc. The “Video_TS.ifo” file is needed to be present on a DVD-compliant disc.
