Convert DVD ISO/IFO images to Surface 2 & Surface Pro 2 with multi-track MP4

What is an IFO file?

IFO files are files that store DVD information. These files are commonly referred to as DVD Info Files because IFO files contain DVD scene and timing information.
On a DVD-Video disc, there are two folders, AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS. In the VIDEO_TS folder, there are many files with the extensions .IFO, .BUP and .VOB. The .IFO files are simply information files; they have no video or audio data at all. They hold information on the VOB files, which are the actual MPEG-2 Video, Dolby Digital / DTS / PCM audio files. You don't particularly play an IFO file, but if you were to open an IFO file in certain software it would play the DVD or a certain set of VOB files.

What is an ISO file?

Think of an .iso as a container that holds all the files and folders contained on a CD/ DVD. Unlike a .zip file, an ISO is not compressed. ISO files are useful for keeping backups of CDs and DVDs and for storing the contents of CDs or DVDs on hard-drives or uploading and downloading them on the internet.

You can play MP4/DivX/XviD/WMV/H.264/H.263 videos on Surface (Pro) 2, but DVD ISO/IFO files are not supported natively. What to do if you happen to have a large DVD collection and wish to enjoy DVD IFO/ISO image files on Surface (Pro) 2 anywhere?
