VOB is a file format used for storing DVD Video. VOB files can contain multiple video and audio streams, subtitles, and DVD menus. Many PC- or Mac-based players can play VOB files, but most mobile devices don’t support this format and some laptops don’t have a DVD drive. If you want to watch your favorite DVD movie on your smartphone or MacBook Air, you first have to convert VOB to MP4 or another appropriate format.
A VOB file is a file that contains a majority of the data on a DVD disc (video, audio, subtitles, DVD menus). It is typically stored in the VIDEO_TS folder at the root of the DVD. VOB files are usually formatted as MPEG-2 so you can open them in almost any media player. These files can be encrypted to ensure copyright protection.
But how to convert VOB to MP4 or any other format? With Movavi Video Converter, you can easily change formats of videos from VOB to MPEG-2, MP4, AVI, WMV, MOV, MKV, etc. Just download the VOB-to-MP4 converter and follow the simple instructions below.
