Importing .OBJ with .MTL


I have a .OBJ file that I'm trying to import but it won't import any of the textures. I think these would be on the .MTL file but I can't quite figure out how to import that or link them somehow. Any insight into this issue would be much appreciated!!

If I understand correctly - and it's really possible that I don't - .mtl files are material files, but not (necessarily?) texture files.  The texture files can be .jpg or .png or other more exotic files.  


I've also seen case where textures don't import with obj files.  I've never been sure if it's because my computer can't read the file or VW can't decode the file.  (It's probably way more complicated than that.)


Feel free to post the obj file here (you'll have to zip it for the uploader).  Maybe someone else will be able to open it for you.
