What is the procedure to convert a DVD video to an mpg?

 

Your DVD is mpg, broke up into a valid DVD Video file ifo, bup, and vob's, so it can get authored to a DVD and play is any settop DVD player.

 

The vobs are broke into .99gb files, but you can change the extension to mpg because that is what they are.

 

Now if you want one continuous file mpg extension follow sknis advice in post #2.

cdanteek, I tried that ... ended up with vob's ... did not know they were multiple mpg files. Thanks.

 

sknis, I've already looked at the contents of the Learning Center ... did not see anything about converting to mpg. Which specific pdf has this info? Thanks.

I'd insert some images, but don't know how to do that on this forum ... so I'll explain with words.

 

I used your procedure. Resulted with the same image you posted ... MyDvd Playtime: 59 min 59 sec. When I select the "proceed" button, the "Video Copy & Convert" dialog box displays along with the words "Encolding to MPEG-2, Phase 1 of 1 (0%)" I uncheck "Close this dialog box when finished".

 

After a minute or so, the dialog box disappears ... the (0%) never changes. Only the "Roxio Creator 2012" dialog box is on the screen.

Transferring directly to a DVD using Roxio was inconsistent ... sometimes it worked, other times it did not. I started using VideoReDo Plus to convert the TiVo into mpg, and then using Roxio to put the mpg onto a DVD. That works fine.

 

This one DVD is one that converted directly from TiVo to the DVD. I'd like to recover it and save it as an mpg.

Perhaps it is time to see if TIVO can hep on this one. When the disc is in the drive and you explore it, what do you see for the files?

Looks like the needed files for a video DVD ! Remember what I said in my first response - Video Copy and Convert. Spend a little time learning it. Here is the pdf for how to copy a video DVD.

 

BTW, do you have the learning center tab at the bottom of you Home page? There is a lot of good tutorials there. If you don't have the Learning Center, you turned it off.

 

You can also copy the DVD to a folder on your hard drive and simply rename the VOB file to have an mpg extension. You can add the first one to Video Wave and I think the rest will follow. (note that I haven't doen this for awhile so I don't remember or if you have to add them separately.

I've done that ... see the post 28 February 2013 - 06:57 AM.

 

I found a simpler solution ... using DOS. Copy the .vob files to a hard disk then used the copy command in a DOS window:

 

copy /b 11.vob + 12.vob + 13.vob + 14.vob + 20.vob + 21.vob x.mpg ... resulted in everything combined into one mpg.

 

Thanks for your patience. The most useful info was that .vob is the same as a .mpg.
