Dvrip or record as avi and use ffmpeg to convert to mp4.
I am currently running Windows Vista and have been able to rip a DVD to my hard drive, convert it from a .VOB to an MP-4 using Any Video Converter and playing it back on my desktop. The problem occurs when I move it to my Blackberry. I get an error code and it will not play. I have some Avi video that I have converted successfully using software from NCH which I have since removed from my drive because when I tried to convert the .VOB files I had no audio on playback (Blackberry or desktop).
I guess the question is, What software will convert a .VOB file to MP-4 without an issue of some sort?
