Editing VOB Files

by jovibrat / September 1, 2004 11:30 PM PDT

I recently purchased a Panasonic Home DVD Recording unit and have been recording my home VHS tapes to DVD.

I have a PC that is equipped with a DVD burner.

Can I copy these vob files to my hard drive and edit them???

You'll need to "rip" that DVD to some .AVI or other files. http://www.clonead.co.uk/ writes "convert a dvd movie to an avi".

Let me be clear I offer ZERO support for this. But can tell you that step works fine.

Next you use your selected AVI editor.

Considering that AVI hogs a lot of space, better to rip the DVD to mpeg1 or mpeg2 for editing.

Sorry, but that's a misconception. .AVI can be MPEG4 encoded. But it DOESN'T MATTER. Here's why. If your intent is to edit the content and put it back on the DVD, the final encoding is dictated by what DVD standards there are.

I've provided you with a solution to get to your DVD VOB content. What you do with it is up to you. Also, your question shows you haven't read the link provided. I know its a lot to digest, but give it time and don't make quick rash statements. You know I never do that...

You need to use google.com to find where clonead went... I could supply a link, but it could die and you'll be back again...

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
