How to convert VOB to MPEG

Convert and rip VOB to MPEG for playback on your computer.

MPEG is Short for Moving Picture Experts Group, and pronounced m-peg, a working group of ISO. The term also refers to the family of digital video compression standards and file formats developed by the group. MPEG generally produces better-quality video than competing formats, such as Video for Windows, Indeo and QuickTime. MPEG files can be decoded by special hardware or by software.

MPEG achieves high compression rate by storing only the changes from one frame to another, instead of each entire frame. The video information is then encoded using a technique called DCT. MPEG uses a type of lossy compression, since some data is removed. But the diminishment of data is generally imperceptible to the human eye.

There are three major MPEG standards: MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4.
  • The most common implementations of the MPEG-1 standard provide a video resolution of 352-by-240 at 30 frames per second (fps). This produces video quality slightly below the quality of conventional VCR videos.
  • MPEG-2 offers resolutions of 720x480 and 1280x720 at 60 fps, with full CD-quality audio. T his is sufficient for all the major TV standards, including NTSC, and even HDTV. MPEG-2 is used by DVD-ROMs. MPEG-2 can compress a 2 hour video into a few gigabytes. While decompressing an MPEG-2 data stream requires only modest computing power, encoding video in MPEG-2 format requires significantly more processing power.
  • MPEG-4 is a graphics and video compression algorithm standard that is based on MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 and Apple QuickTime technology. Wavelet-based MPEG-4 files are smaller than JPEG or QuickTime files, so they are designed to transmit video and images over a narrower bandwidth and can mix video with text, graphics and 2-D and 3-D animation layers. MPEG-4 was standardized in October 1998 in the ISO/IEC document 14496.
The extension .mpeg is added to video files encoded in the MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 standard. If you want to rip the VOB files to MPEG, you need the VOB to MPEG converter. The following is one of the VOB to MPEG software step by step guide, telling you how to convert VOB to MPEG with WinXMedia DVD Ripper.

Step 1. Download WinXMedia DVD Ripper, and install it.

Step 2. Run WinXMedia DVD Ripper, and click the button "Open MPEG/VOB Files" to select the VOB files what would you like to convert. And you can preview the VOB files in the preview window.

Step 3. In the input panel, there are 4 options: Index, Angle, Audio, Subtitle. With the option "Subtitle", you can select the subtitle to display on the screen.

Step 4. In the output panel, you can do some options as you like: Format, Zoom, Volumes, Frame rate, Folder. If you want to get the MPEG files with the high quality, you can select the format for Super Video CD (MPEG2). But the output files may be very large. Select the output folder by clicking the "Browse..." button or directly enter a path in "Folder" box. The "C:\SDVDTemp" is set as the default destination folder.

Step 5. When all the options are OK, press the button "Start to Convert" and wait for end.
