    Default Video programs wont recognise dvd

    Hi,

    Have this dvd with personal film on it but no program I have will see it when retrieving.

    The dvd clips play on my machine but cannot be picked up by video programs like WMM or Corel.

    It is the VOB files that are the actual video on a DVD. It is MPEG2 encoded video so not the best to edit to start with.

    Basically, what you need is a piece of s/w that will allow you to edit MPEG2 - or more specifically, VOB files. Sometimes people have luck by simply renaming the VOB files to MPG or soemthing. i.e. to an extension the app recognises.

    I would like to emphaises though that if you wish to edit you are so much better going back to the original footage and editting it from that. If you do find you can edit the VOB file then you will start to see degradation in the image likely as not. Like taking a photocopy of a photocopy. Not long before it looks nasty.

    Thanks for replying, the disk got kinda lost so all I have is what is on my pc in the snapshot.

    So the VIDEO_TS.VOB file is tyhe one to be changed - thanks, that narrows it down - I was wondering which of these I need to code.

    Not concerned about quality so much as saving it to a recognised format.

    Software I have is Windows Media Encoder but it will not even see these clips. I dont quite know how to use it either - Is there an easier way?
