Can you guys tell me a program that allows me to convert .VOB files to an HD format. I so far used Any Video Converter but it f*cked up at the second .VOB file of the DVD since the rendered video is not synchronized with the audio track. I also tried Fair Use but it doesn't recognize the DVD.
Any suggestions? (preferably a Freeware)

Why would you want to convert a standard def source to a high def file?

Anyway handbrake will convert to those formats.

I'll echo Fozzy's sentiment here - why on earth would you want to do that? You'll have much better results by keeping it at the same resolution as the source.


...unless by 'HD' you mean hard drive....

Watch this video:


This is converted from SD to HD and it looks great! I know some details are lost in the stretching process but in the smaller youtube window it looks great.

Ah. I see. Is that your goal? To upload something to youtube?

I've done tests in the past, and really can't notice any difference myself. If you upload a high quality SD video, you should see similar quality after the YT conversion.

Give handbrake a spin. If that doesn't float your boat, try MpegStreamclip + Quicktime alternative (or quicktime pro + the Mpeg2 plugin if you wanna pay for it)

I tried handbrake. It's strange that it rendered the first chapter of the first title in one file, and there was another file that was unreadable.
I think I'll go back to Sony Vegas. But the problem is that Vegas can import .VOB files without audio.

I still say you're sh*tting up the wrong creek.

I will try it.

You mean the SD to HD conversion? Well...I'm going to continue what I started but I'll take your advice on future rips.
Anyway, thanks for your help!

Good luck! Any questions about it, give me a shout. You'll need to have either Quicktimepro+theMpeg2 plugin, or Quicktime Alternative.

Hey if you have a reasonably new (7000 or newer) NVidia graphics card, you can establish the same video quality by simply turning on upscaling in the control panel. This does what you're trying to do by using your graphics card to upscale the video to your native resolution.

AppGeeker VOB MP4 Converter is a great converter tool.
Not sure if it is much better than Handbrake, but it works very well for converting to and from many audio and video compression or container formats.
