Is it possible to watch VOB files?

When I'm trying to start a video, MusciBee says that for VOB files a codec is needed. I have K-Lite installed, but this doesn't work.

I?have installed video codecs and can play video on main window.
However, I use multi-display, and can't play video when moving MusicBee window to second or third display.
On other video players such as vlc, video can be played on second or third display.
I tried other codec such as shark007 but can't play in the same way.

In addition, when video play is finished, the message "the file is not a valid audio file and cannot be played musicbee" is shown.

OS: Windows 7 Home Edition Service Pack 1 64bit

i'm not doing anything with the Video plugin in musicbee until i see what the plugin developer delivers for the next version, so for now its not being supported

 :( I am trying out MusicBee, currently using Winamp.

I am trying to get the video plugin to work but on both my destop and netbook I get stuck.

When I try to enable video support in preferences plugins I get the following message:

"the video support plugin could not be loaded - locate in Windows Explorer, right click / Properties / Unblock.

I followed these instructions but still get the dialogue in MusicBee

It seems that Video Plugin can cause bugs:

IMHO, using LAV Filters instead would be a better choice:
More info:

Despite advantages mentioned in reply no. 14 in this topic it would improve CD-Ripper and Converter experience.
LAV codec can be used to convert a mp4 file to mp3 for example.

Any chance to consider implementing LAV Codecs for MusicBee 2.1 final  ???

So is it still available for those of us who do know codec packs are actually good & aren't crazy? I would rather like to at least be able to try using it even if there might be an issue, but it looks like you removed the link. :( 
Seems like it works for enough people & I've always had K-lite, which I guess means a better chance of it working for me, so if it's not too much to ask, could I be pointed toward where it might be or something?  ^_^
Make it so, number one.

unfortunately the guy who developed the bass video plugin that my plugin is based from does not appear to be spending time to support it, i feel it wasnt fully ready, and also i cant justify the time needed to support it so i am doubtful it will go anywhere.
