This tool fixed an error that DVD Shrink kept telling me about not being to find a VTS file even though the file existed. I loaded up the movie files in VOB Blanker and it outputted everything to a new folder and DVD Shrink was then able to load up my movie. I have no idea what this program did to fix the issue, but it worked quickly. (I had spent an hour scouring the web reading different complex ways to fix that DVD Shrink error but this was the easiest sounding and this actually worked).

Just as the other readers on this Forum ,I agree that Vob Blanker is great and does just what it was made to do ,which is blank out unwanted FBI Warnings and studio logos and replaces them with a black screen.. Vob Blanker can even make your picky DVD-r( that was recorded on a Stand-Alone recorder) play in any dvd player(after you make a new copy of your original) IT'S GREAT and IT'S FREE and Best of all IT WORKS!!

Does what it says on the box combined with other free tools provides a way to completely remove extras not just replace with a stillimage.

For episodic DVD's this is the best tool. Dump the garbage, keep the menus. Probably the most underrated tool ever made in the freeware category or any other.
