Convert DVD VOB to Windows RT tablets for playback


New Member
Many people find way cracking and ripping DVDs to VOB format, hoping to save the time hunting for favorite movie among tons of discs, but then they have problems with the VOB clips – the main movie is divided into a set of .VOB files rather than one big file. Moreover, the VOB will neither play in Windows Media Player nor by iPad or Android tablet. Even now with Windows 8 tablet, playing VOB is still a problem. For example, the Microsoft’s Windows RT tablets can not play .vob files at all.

Suppose you’re a Windows RT user, and would like to put some .vob videos to the Windows RT tablet for watching, here’s a workaround. Other than ripping a DVD to a set of .VOB files, you can also convert the entire DVD into one .MP4 file, which is naturally supported by all Windows 8 tablets. If you have .vob clips in the original file structure, you can load the folder to Pavtube DVD Ripper and convert them into MP4 – the software will read DVD structure and combine all the VOB streams into one file in the proper order.
