Usually when you have a .bin file you have a .cue file to accompany it. These are cd/dvd image files. VLC plays it because it's super duper and will play anything you ask it to. Any burning software should burn these, but if the .cue file is missing it might not like it.

You could also open up the image file using ISOBuster or Daemon Tools. You might be able to extract the movie from it once opened using one of these programs.

Try using nero vision - when you add the video file you will need to change it to see all file types first. Add the bin file and it will convert it for you!!

you could also try burning the image to disk using nero.

go to them menu recorder/burn image

then browse the folder where yur film is stored.

select the file that is visible..ie .cue file.

burn.

chances are its a vcd disk and the player is playing the image of it.

Or just right click on the cue file and say open with Nero burning rom. That works much faster for me.
