    Hi everybody,

    Well, basically like the title says I am looking for a tool that can split
    a VOB file.

    Can anyone recommend a freeware/working shareware software to do this?

    Thanks in advance,

    Thanks, but that doesn't work. I've tried it, but it can't even open a vob
    file. It keeps looking for the video_ts.ifo file, but I don't have that. I
    only have a single chapter of the dvd.

    Basically, I'm looking for a freeware tool that can open vobs, cut them
    (NOT in chunks of x mb, but within a range I can specify myself), and then
    saves the range I selected.

    It not freeware, but TMpgEnc DVD Author will work if the video_ts file
    is missing.
    Just rename the .vob to .mpg and use the "Add file" button rather than
    "Add DVD video" button.

    Thanks for the suggestions. They have a trial version which you need to
    validate online, and which fully works for 14 days - ideal for me since I
    only need it once.

    Alas, it doesn't work. I've tried importing the vob file like you said, but
    now I get the following errors:

    "The NTSC DVD-Video standard does not accept MPEG-2 with a resolution of
    "The NTSC DVD-Video standard does not accept a framerate 25 fps"

    Pff... If I can't find a tool by the end of the week, I'll just need to
    roll my own. Apparently there is a niche for it :)

    <snipped all>

    Whoops... Spoke too soon... That'll teach me to test new software at 2 in
    the morning :)

    Apparently I missed the option on the first screen to choose between NTSC
    and PAL. After making the switch, I was able to not only import the vob I
    wanted to process, but also to cut out the range and export it to a new vob

    Bill, thank you very much for your help!

  7. MPEGStreamclip http://www.squared5.com/ supports

    VID, AVR, M2V, M1V, MPV, AIFF, M1A, MP2, MPA, AC3...

    is free and you can do basic top and tail editing. It will play vob files
    and a whole range of other files. You can then export as a mpeg file to use
    to author a dvd etc.

    It's available for Windows or MAC the only other program you need to have
    installed is QuickTime or QuickTime Alternative (the free program from

    Thanks for the hint - I've already converted the vob file thanks to Bill,
    but I'll download it anyway and give it a try... You never know when you
    might need it again :)

  9. And I use VideoRedo to manipulate the VOBs. Also not freeware but
    one of the best programs I've purchased. I've just edited down
    programs this AM that I recorded a few months ago from cable.

    DVDDecryptor in the IFO mode pulls out the VOBs and VideoRedo edits
    them quite nicely.
