Thread: Converting .mpg-files to .vob-files ???

  1. #1

    Thumbs down Converting .mpg-files to .vob-files ???

    Hello!

    I am new here at these forums. First of all, I couldn't find a forum that best would describe my problem or issue, but hopefully there is someone out there who could guide me on to the right path...

    When I record a film on my dvd recorder, I understand the file format the dvd recorder makes are .vob.

    When I make a recording thru ShowView or timer, more often than not the recording will have annoying advertisements in the beginning and the end of the film, and sometimes, depending on TV station, the films have advertisement intermissions too.

    Of course, advertisements of this type are of no use to anyone, they are just annoying, which makes me and everyone else want to edit or author the dvd. When uploaded to the computer, the outcome are a multiple of .vob files in the video ts folder.

    As I have understood, the .vob-files are not editable as they are (or am I wrong?), they have to be converted to .mpg-files first. When this is done, there's no problem to cut out the ads from the files and make new files. There are many nice freeware programs who does that job right.

    Now to my question: Before burning the authored files back to a new dvd, I presume the files have to be converted back to .vob first. Or am I wrong about this?

    I have searched the internet over to find a program that convert from mpg to vob, but haven't found any at all.

    Now I wonder - may be it isn't at all important to convert the mpg files back to .vob ? Or will the burner programs do that by themselves? The program i use is Roxio Burn CDs and DVDs - "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Sonic Shared\Sonic Central\Main\Mediahub.exe" .

    I wonder if someone could guide me in the right direction here, I am new at these things.

    1000 thanks in advance for a prompt and rapid reply.

    Many kind wishes and greetings to you all from Göteborg, Sweden!

    Yes - the burner program will convert to vob to make playable dvds.

    The burner program that I have?

    Or could you recommend me sme other software (freeware) that does the job?

    A friend of mine mentioned TMPGEnc.DVD.Author.3.with.DivX ? But I'm not sure this is a freeware.

    I don't know about that program. Do you?

    I think there is a freeware program called BurnOnCD/DVD that will author and burn mpeg. and a freeware converter program is ProjectX I use it to turn .REC files from a set top box to mpg and then use Womble MPEG Video Wizard (it is not free but it has a trail version), I use this to cut out the adds, if you are just useing VOB files with only one audio track you can just rename it mpg it's just that a VOB can have upto 8 audio tracks,
