    Importing VOB files from DVD

    I had some 8mm film transfered to dvd, and I need to import into Speed Edit.
    When I view the files on the DVD I see them being some kind of VOB files and
    when I try to import the file from the file bin in Speed Edit there is question marks on the icons and blank icons. Is there something I'm missing in the process of importing VOB files the guy at the shop said they were mpeg2 files,
    I thought they would import easily into Speed Edit. If anyone could give me some guidance on this process I would really appreciate the help.

    1. Put the files on a hard drive.
    2. Rename .vob .mpg
    3. Play the DVD and record into a PC.

    There is another thread on this, look around this and last week.

    goto a Search and type in VOB Edit. I would just play the DVD and record somewhere.

    Look up VirtualDub MPEG. This VirtualDub mod can open a VOB file, letting you save it as an AVI. Works, and it's open-source.

    Hmmm... think many are using that MagicI! Aura2.5b LW edition opened vob's with an Elecard codec installed, way back in the 90's. Sure sounds funny saying 90's, when I just took a T/F out of my studio! LOL

    Thanks for the link Doc. If there is one thing I've learned, there is always something better somewhere.
