“I attempted to stream DVD ISO movie files off my Mac PC to my new arrived iPhone 5S so I can kill the spare time while waiting for a bus. But soon I realized it cannot play DVD ISO movies. Is there a way or method that will play DVD ISO files on Apple iPhone 5S?”

What is DVD ISO and what is DVD IFO file?
DVD ISO - A DVD ISO image is an archive file (also known as a disc image) of a DVD disc, composed of the data contents of every written sector of an optical DVD disc. The DVD ISO image can be created from DVD discs by image creation software program.
DVD IFO - When you access the DVD drive you'll see at least 2 directories: AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS. AUDIO_TS is used for DVD Audio and contains the audio files, whereas VIDEO_TS is used to store all data for the movie. Under the VIDEO_TS directory, there are three types of files: .VOB, .IFO and .BUP. IFO Files give the player important navigational information, like where a chapter starts, where a certain audio or subtitles stream is located, etc. This is the reason why it's only possible to rip certain parts of a movie (like a chapter) with a ripper which can read these files. Last but not least IFO files are not encrypted.
