How to Play Video_TS/ISO files via Plex
Files such as ISO and folder structures such as VIDEO_TS are generally referred to as "disk image" formats because they're basically "cloning" the structure and content from a DVD optical disc. Such formats are not supported in Plex. If you want to use Video_TS/ISO files with Plex, the easy workaround is to convert them to a fully compatible format with Plex. If you're no idea about that, here is a simple tutorial for you. Read on for details.
To finish the task quickly and easily, Brorsoft Video Converter Ultimate is highly recommended. With it, you can convert ISO/Video_TS to Plex supported video formats with fast encoding speed and excellent output quality. Besides that, you can rip DVD/Blu-ray discs as well as convert Video_TS/ISO/AVI/MKV/MPG/TiVo/VOB/FLV, etc. to optimized video for playback on iPad, iPod, iPhone, Zune, Creative Zen, Archos, iRiver, Blackberry, Xbox 360 and more. If you're a Mac user, you can turn to Brorsoft iMedia Converter for Mac (El Capitan included), which has the same function as the Windows version. Now download the program and follow the step-by-step guide to use Video_TS/ISO files with Plex freely.
How to convert Video_TS/ISO for Plex streaming
Step 1. Load Video_TS/ISO files
Run Brorsoft Video Converter Ultimate and click "Load DVD" to select and load the Video_TS folder or ISO image files to the program.
STEP 2. Decide output format
Click Format bar and choose MP4 from Common Video, which can be recognized by Plex well. MKV is also a good choice; as a container format it takes whatever you give it.

This is particularly helpful when streaming over your network, depending on your network quality. Simply click Settings bar and you can tweak the settings to your satisfaction and even save it as preset.
Step 4. Start the conversion
Hit the "Convert" button at the bottom of the main interface to start the conversion. It will automatically convert VIDEO_TS/ISO to Plex Media Server compatible video files.
Once the conversion is finished, click "Open" to quickly find the converted movies. Then, Plex will recognize, catalog, play and stream the encoded Video_TS/ISO files just fine.
