IFO File Format

Digital Video Disk (DVD) datafile

IFO is a DVD Info File format. It is the counterpart of a .VRO file, where the VRO contains the media stream information, and the IFO file contains information for chapters, subtitles and audio tracks. To be DVD-compliant, a VIDEO_TS.IFO file (also referred to as the VMGI, or Video Manager Information file) needs to be present on a DVD.
