Rip from DVD straight to MPEG2 format? (without re-encoding)
on Apr 11, 2008 at 10:09:45 am

Hello!

I have some footage on DVD (in .VOB format)

I have been told that .VOB is basically an MPEG2 with extra information...Is there a way to extract the footage and remove the information that makes it .VOB?

I need the footage to be in MPEG2 so i can put it into Adobe Encore with other video files to burn.

I dont want to have to re-encode it as this will cause loss of quality! Is there a way to rip the footage off the DVD into MPEG2 format?

any help would be very very much appreciated!!

cheers

Matt

There are a number of programs that do this. Are you on MAC or PC? You looking for free, cheap, or pricey demuxer?

Cheap:

I think the DVD-Logic DVD Demux is your best bet and only $40.

The free ones will do just fine also.

I hope this is what you were looking for.

Which version of Encore are you using?

Have you tried to just import the VOB?

In the Project window, rt-click / Import As / Timeline / then for file types select ALL FILES, and select the corresponding IFO file -- or the VOB file). This doesn't always work, but might be worth a shot...

Regards,
George

I use PGC Demux all the time. It is free, and works perfectly....it doesn't convert or recompress or anything.
