Pinnacle Studio 16, which i purchased recently, is a wonderful editing software, but strangly enough the only common video format it canīt import is VOB. So first of all i got stuck with a private DVD i wanted to edit.
Each of the various programs i then tested to solve this problem "convert" to any format, but not to MPEG.

Only VOB2MPG does the required job (just change lossless to mpeg) so easy and fast.

Windows 8.1 x64: no
Windows 7 x64: yes

This tool is entirely too limited to be considered free. Yes, it will extract your VOBs to a simple MPEG; however it does so at a major speed reduction and a lack of features. You cannot change your output path once you set it; unless you apparently pay for it. It takes much longer to convert VOBs to MPG than to rip them directly to MPG using other tools.

I give the author credit; but his desire to make a buck off this tool has left the free version a crippled shell of a program that barely does what you want while limiting *how* you can do it. The simple inability to do simple tasks without paying for it leads to unnecessary complication; making it easier to do everything by hand with standard tools.

To crash the program:
launch it,
dismiss the nag screen,
press the IFO/Vobset toggle,
press the Browse for DVD source folder icon.

A browser for folder window comes up with Computer at the top left corner, then Windows pops up the VOB2MPG has stopped working box.

not sure what the last posts is all about but an 8.8 out of 10 is not "low marks". program does what it's intended for and does it well.

if you need help post in the vob2mpg forum and the author - chrissyboy - always takes care of his users.

Obviously it has all the low marks because it does not work. I payed for the PRO version, used it once with no problem but the next time I tried to use it all I got was error messages. There is no way to contact the owner and one has to use the forum hoping that some other user will come up with the solution which I consider unsatisfactory.

This is a program with great functionality, but the nagging pop-ups and self-promotion is really annoying IMO. That is why it receives overall only an average score.
To the best of my knowledge older free versions performed the conversion as fast or faster without the stress (v2.5).

This is the only program out there ( and Lord knows I looked) that extracts VOB from DVD to MPEG without re-encoding, with the sound stream you want intact (including DTS 6 channel). The resulting MPEG is very useful to have for editing without sufering quality loss. You don't even have to hassel with joining VOB's either, just select the IFO and you're in business.

I'm so impressed with this little gem of an app that I'm going to buy the pro version for 12 quid that has some extra features.

This program is very useful to me. I have children, and I'd rather them not mess with the DVD collection. Instead, I'll use this to create an mpeg of the movie, and transfer it to the TiVo so they can watch it on the regular TV. Thanks to the author(s)

Great but the limits of the free version as well as the popups are slightly annoying. However if you want video preview as well as the ability to convert to mpeg for free its totally worth it. Much improved with the ability to choose a single tile compared to version 2.5. Compared to DVD Decrypter (the other main free alternative) its very good.

My situation was similar to others here, but I wanted to confirm something that was said.

Due to the comments of others, I decided to download version 2.3 (my computer's 4 years old). It converted 2.5 GB split across 3 VOB's in just over 7 minutes. Audio was synched just fine.

What I wanted to confirm was the fact that with 2.3, if you get the 0 files converted message - just hit the Start button again.


I ranked "Ease of use" a 9 instead of a 10 is because it doesn't add an icon to the desktop when it installs. Other than that minor thing, it's definitely a 10.

I ranked "Functionality" a 9 because (as far as I can tell, after using it just once) it doesn't offer the option of specifying an output filename.

These two things may have been fixed in the current version, but I can put up with these quirks more than I can having it take an order of magnitude longer to do the conversion.

Interesting - I updated to VOB2MPG v 3.0.060 - and it took a LONG time to extract MPG from VOB - not what I recalled from my earlier version 2.5.

For a Video_TS folder of about 2.7Gb it took over 47 mins to do the extraction in v 3.0.060.

I uninstalled that version and re-installed v 2.5 and did the same extraction again -
this time it took a mere 8 minutes - that's quite a difference.

I guess I am going to stick to version 2.5

Just upgraded from the free to the pro version. The Pro version is significantly faster than the free version - well worth the small fee to get the Pro version. Great software - does what it says it will do and does it well.

OK... I only write this comment because I am really annoyed by the previous one made by wallywalters. I don't understand what his problem is with the ms framework but giving a 4 out of 10 for Value I think is outrages! this tool is FREE! People expect a present sent home aswell just because they use the free tool? Functionality 1? Men... get a life! I think the developer do not deserves feedbacks like yours.
I love this tool... it does exactly what you asked for, especially the fact that now (v3.0) you can choose what streems to keep.
Well done to the developer and thank you for this free tool!

It does what it's supposed to, so it gets a 10 for functionality, but requires .Net Framework, so ease of use gets a zero. Shame, really.

I stand corrected. Regarding my comment about the speed of v3 as compared to v2.3 I was converting in the ISO mode. When I tried it in the VOBSET mode v3 was just as fast as 2.3. I guess now I'll stick with the new one. BTW, thanks for the explanation of the 2 different modes. I was not aware of it.

Ok... v3 is the big brother of v2.x. Fact.

If you want the functionality of 2.x you have it in v3 with VOBSET mode. It is ultimately the same thing and has the same speed (v3 vs v2.x).

If you want more choice - IFO mode allows you to extract the main movie (and/or anything else) and you get to choose the audio stream (language etc) plus it allows you to keep DTS etc. But this mode on v3 is slower than v2.5...

HOWEVER - if you take the punt to "go pro"... v3 PRO IFO mode allows you to select chapters, omit chapters, reorder chapters, correct GOP timestamps and output a mpg per chapter if you want. BUT the biggest plus for me was that it was alot QUICKER than v2.x in doing this.

This is an invaluable tool to have in the toolbox!

For what it's worth, I installed the new version 3.0 & compared the conversion speed with 2.3.
For a 59 minute video 3.0 took 10.31 minutes, 2.3 took 3.31 minutes. I think I'll stick with 2.3.

Still great at what it does. A nag screen pops up after extracting each title telling you how much faster the pro version is but since this version is free I can live with that. Actually for the small amount of money the author is asking for the pro version It would probably be worth it to purchase and upgrade to pro. Free version works well enough for my needs though.

Thanks for the new version ChrissyBoy! Much appreciated! A++

Works only if unencrypted, and even then it gave me fuzz for the audio.

I would have given it a better score except that DVDshrink (which is also free) can convert quickly to MPEG2 on even ENCRYPTED DVDs and the audio always comes out perfect.

Here's how with DVDshrink:
1) Install DVDshrink (download at softpedia.com)
2) Preferences: "output files" tab: UNcheck "Split VOBs" checkbox
Preferences: "File I/O" tab: UNcheck "Enable burning with Nero" checkbox
3) Open disk
4) click "Re-Author" button
5) On the right-pane (not left) click Main Movie, then double-click the movie you want to rip
6) On right-pane (again) click "compression settings" tab. Deselect any unused audio, etc. I also recompress to about 67%, but you might want to leave it as "automatic".
7) Click "Backup" button
8) De-select "create Video_TS and Audio_TS folders" checkbox
9) Select target folder, then select "OK" button
10) When done, go to the target folder and rename the VOB extension to MPG.

VOB files are MPG files that are screwed up ... DVDshrink UNscrews them up, so they are essentially normal MPG files with a VOB extension.

Now you can stream directly to Tivo, or MediaMVP, Put it back on a DVD, or further edit it or shrink it to a dinky or web-friendly format using mediacoder or some other tool.

I have also experienced the "0 VOBs completed" issue. After getting that message, I simply hit the "start" button again and the software does its job perfectly.

This didn't work for me I'm afraid. Firstly it seemed very slow compared to similar tools I've used (8 mins to convert a combined VOB size of 1.8gigs). This resulted in an MPEG which had out of sync audio (the VOBs themselves played fine in PowerDVD). So, this tool still has room for improvement.

I've been using the software for the last week to copy dvd's for a video server I'm planning to setup and all has been going great.

I would like 2 additional features added to the software:

1) to be able to merge mpg files for movies that have been split across 2 discs; you can probably add a second line for the second source and a merge check box. I did a quick search on google but I haven't found a simple solution for this problem yet.

2) on the command line options I'd like to be able to specify the name of the new file instead of VTS_01.mpg. I've created a batch file to handle the whole conversion process and this would simplify everything.

Thanks for a very nice program.
