Use Videowave (under the Video tab''Edit Video-Advanced)-when opened, select the format (4:3 or 16:9) then choose 'Add Photo/Video', browse to the Video_ts folder and choose your .vob file.

I beleive his question is to open a single VOB file which he copies from a DVD to his hard disk then tries to open it, It will not work without the .ifo file. Myself, I tried it and it would not open.

The Video_TS folder (copied to the hard drive by the OP) contains the ifo file. Beerman's reply is correct and is the correct method. Why would you want to open only a single vob file? The vob files are connected and in sequence.

I'll tell you why I would want to open a single VOB file. If I have a music DVD and I only want to edit just one song which lies in one of these VOB file so I can edit, convert

Now, Have you ever try some other software beside Roxio ? e.g sony vegas. All you have to do is drop 1 single VOB file and it'll open for you to edit. For roxio, if you want to open part of a DVD, you have to copy the whole DVD including IFO files, Roxio will read the IFO file then open the WHOLE DVD in which you can edit.

 

There are tons of software out there that would allow you to cut and split just the VOB (ie. without looking for info in the .ifo file)file and in my case that what I did, so I can play just the VOB file with the Seagate freeagent theater+ Media Player and all it needs is just the VOB.

 

Have you also look closely on the timeline when you drop any VOB file on it ? it shows that the ifo file is being opened.

If you only want to open a single vob file, simply copy that file to your hard drive and change the extension to mpg and you are good to go.

Just curious, how do you determine which VOB file you want to use?

What exactly do you want to do with the vob files? Do you want to extract clips from the entire video? Do you want to extract audio from certain chapters? Details please so the right Creator 2011 application can be recommended to suit your need.

Very easy. Windows will show the thumbnail of the VOB or you can use KMPlayer which is a freeware that you can google and download, This player will play almost anything without installing codec pack. Just drop the VOB file and it'll play so you can determine which one you want to work on. In my case, I use boisoft splitter/joiner software and just drop in the VOB file, it will play the preview then I can cut whatever way I want, not necessarily chapter...

 

@Mygugi: yes I'll try to change the file extension as advised and if it works and can be opened with Roxio then that's exactly what I want. Thanks guys !!!

@myguggi: You are A1. I tried to change the extension and it worked perfectly and I guess that was

the question from the begining.

 

FYI, I played one single VOB with Kmplayer and look at the media info, it in fact tells you the format for the VOB is MPEG video.

 

Thanks for your help.
