FFmpeg is a command-line video converter. It can convert among a variety of formats, including the iPod-compatible MP4 format. If you have a VOB file in a Video_TS folder (a standard format for DVD rips), you can convert it to an MP4 with a single command. This will not only change the file format, but update all the video codecs to ensure full MP4 compatibility.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open FFmpeg.

  2. 2

    Copy and paste the following into the command line:

    ffmpeg -i input -acodec libfaac -vcodec mpeg4 -b 1200k -mbd 2 -flags +mv4+aic -trellis 2 -cmp 2 -subcmp 2 -metadata title=X output.mp4

  3. 3

    Change "X" to the desired title of your output video and hit Enter.

  4. 4

    Type in the location of the VOB file when prompted, then hit Enter again.

  5. 5

    Wait for the conversion to complete. FFmpeg will display "OK" when it is done. Depending on the size of your VOB, it could take up to ten minutes.
