Rip DVD to VOB rather than MKV?

Post by rpjcheney » Sat Aug 06, 2011 3:36 pm

Hi,

Quick question. Is it possible to use MakeMKV to select a mpeg2 and selected AC3 audio stream and then rip to vob format rather than mkv?

The reason for asking is that I want to put the resulting files onto a NAS server to stream to PS3, and I cannot find a way to convert mkv to vob without doing a recode. (I.e. no equivalent of mkv2vob on Mac OSX)

Any ideas?

Much obliged - Rich

It sort of does unofficially. Start the streaming and browse to the page where the file you want is located and save that to your PC.

Hi Skittle. I gave that a go and it did save it out to a valid .vob file. Thanks for the tip!

However, it seems to ignore the audio track selections and streams the full set of AC3 tracks. (I need to select the English 5.1 track with one particular movie, else I get the Hungarian track when I play it through on the PS3!)

It would be great of they added a MakeVOB button as well as a MakeMKV one.

I'm curious, why do you need a VOB file? For example, audio language names are not preserved in VOB file.
