    How To Convert Vob To Avi?

    I checked out HandBrake, but it does not convert to AVI. Here's a quote from the HandBrake FAQs: I exported my video once already, as mpeg-4, but there were visible lines through the entire screen. I am unable to use the "DVD from Video" setting, because I get an error that my Video_TS folder can't be compressed. I see others have had this same problem. I'll try exporting again, using different settings. Roxio support told me I could use Toast to convert VOB files inti AVIs. They better not have lied to me! Still no one has told me what those BUP & IFO files are. And why do I have several VOB files in the Video_TS folder, but Toast only shows 2? It still managed to get the whole movie, so I'm not concerned about it, just trying to figure out how Toast works. I've never had to mess with video burning/converting before. I don't even have a burner yet, so I gotta save to the HD. One more thing: Why does the a file that's 641mb in mpeg-4, only create a file of about 56mb in Quicktime Movie format? How can it possibly lose that much info, and still be a full movie? Thanks everyone for your input!

    How To Convert Vob To Avi?

    Actually, I forgot about the user guide. I looked in the Help file. I did find a reference to burning a Video_TS folder, but it doesn't say how to convert to another format. But I now see that it says to drag the entire Video_TS folder into the Content Area. That makes it easy, as I still didn't know what to do with the BUP & IFO files. You didn't explain what these do. From your reply, it sounds like I would drag just the VOB files into the Content Area, and disregard the rest. Does this also work with .Bin .Cue files-just drag the whole folder? As stated in my post, I did search the forums. I read the post you linked to. It does NOT say how to convert to AVI, only tells how to burn a Video_TS folder, which doesn't help me. A search for "convert to avi", "convert avi" or "vob to avi" (without quotes) found nothing. Actually, I forgot about the user guide; I looked in the Help file.

    How To Convert Vob To Avi?

    Hey All, I'm brand new to Toast. Before I bought it, Roxio Support told me I could use it to convert VOB files to AVI. So I'm surprised that there's no help file for this, and I also can't find any relevant postings in the forums. And along with the VOB files are some IFO & BUP files. What are these, and how do I turn all this into a file I can watch? Not interested in burning to DVD at this point, I just want to create a file I can watch on my iBook.
