Why I'm unable to see any VOB file on Samsung Smart TV from Plex?

Can Samsung Smart TV accept VOB files from Plex for movie experience on big screen? When people try to import VOB files ripped from DVD on Samsung Smart TV with Plex to play, they always find that Samsung Smart TV can't open any VOB file stored on Plex server. That's because VOB, as a container format in DVD-Video media and with additional limitations and specifications, its playback on applications and devices is quite limited: only VLC, Mplayer such universal players, or Windows Media Player (but not in Windows 8) and the regular DVD players, while Plex or some Samsung TV models are not supposed to be able to support vob files directly as far as I know. Just read on to get some clues and easy fix.
