how to burn VOB files correctly so they also play in standalone DVD player?

Looking how to burn VOB files correctly so they also play in standalone DVD player?

Quote:
Try DVDFab or ImgBurn
Hello, I am trying to burn a VOB file (actually 4 that are split up) using Nero Vision Express. Everytime I try to burn them, they won't play in my DVD player but will in my computer. I know the discs are compadible with my DVD player (looked that up), just cant figure out how to burn them correctly. Should I use the VOB files? Or should I use another file type?

Thanks!

VOB files are right, but you need more information in there too. You are keeping the .ifo and other files aren't you? Also are you SURE that the disks are compatible? If you are using +R media are you bitsetting (if you don't then my JVC doesn't recognise the disk, if you do it's fine).

Both problems above seem more like media problems - try another brand and see what happends - just because your play says it supports DVD+R or -R - different Dyes might not work.

Ok, I used a DVD-R and it worked! But, when it is playing, it looks like is kinda skipping. Like freexing for a half of second then keeps going then does it again over and over. Anyone know how to fix this problem?

Every time this has happened to me, it's because i've burned the disc too fast. I was copying something for a friend on some cheap 16x discs and toward the end of the movie, it would skip and freeze. I burned the next disc at 8x and it played fine at the points where before it was skipping. You don't have to burn every disc slower because some can burn at the maximum speed fine. These discs were Dynex brand from BB (we get an incredible discount). The media code is RitekF1 (first i've ever heard of these). I've had good luck with Fujis from Japan, and Verbatims.

Burn .vob files so your DVD player will play them, here is the solution I came up with...

http://www.gromkov.com/faq/faq2004-0026.html

The software is free http://www.imgburn.com/

AND FAST!!! ... and easy No more bloated junk for me (nero / roxio).

For archive purposes, I also recommend AVS video converter (FREE, google it) if you run it to .mks files you want to burn.

Hope this helps.

Typically this is what you should have in the Video_ts folder:-
VIDEO_TS.BUP
VIDEO_TS.IFO
VIDEO_TS.VOB
VTS_01_0.BUP
VTS_01_0.IFO
VTS_01_1.VOB
VTS_01_2.VOB
VTS_01_3.VOB
VTS_01_4.VOB

If you don't have this combination nothing will work.
Dear TimC,

I'm just an inch away from success, but something is bothering me.

You see I have this in VIDEO_TS :

VIDEO_TS.BUP
VIDEO_TS.IFO
VTS_01_0.BUP
VTS_01_0.IFO
VTS_01_0.VOB

Do I NEED to have VIDEO_TS.VOB,
because I don't have it or don't know how to get it.

Usually you don't need the VIDEO_TS.VOB.It usually just contains warnings maybe a logo.
Check a VIDEO_TS.VOB by itself with VLC player or any program that will let you load & preveiw a single .vob.One from a commercial DVD.
Veiw the single VIDEO_TS.VOB of a commercial DVD in VobEdit using Preview/Framestep.VLC runs one pretty fast.

Ok, thank you.

Is it a problem when VTS_01_1.VOB is more than 2 GB ??

(I changed VTS_01_0.VOB TO VTS_01_1.VOB)

After reading this thread, it looks to me this pretty much summarizes the solution:

1. Preparation
You need to have this list of filesin the Video_ts folder:

VIDEO_TS.BUP
VIDEO_TS.IFO
VIDEO_TS.VOB*
VTS_01_0.BUP
VTS_01_0.IFO
VTS_01_1.VOB
VTS_01_2.VOB
VTS_01_3.VOB
VTS_01_4.VOB
*not reallly needed

2. Burning sofware
You can use various burning software - Nero; DVDFab; ImgBurn. Just make sure you burn as DVD-Video, not as data.

3.Disc type
This is where I need your help guys - which discs are best to use?

4.Unanswered Questions
Question by TimoKeil : Is it a problem when VTS_01_1.VOB is more than 2 GB ?



How about this little guide, anything left out that should be included?

Re: how to burn VOB files correctly so they also play in standalone DVD player?

Why did you change VTS_01_0.VOB TO VTS_01_1.VOB.That might make the rest of the files not find it like the VTS_01_0.IFO.I would change it back.
My DVD programs usually seperate the .vobs at .99GB .
On a computer with NTFS you shouldn't have a problen with 2 GB.
On a standalone it probably depends on the make & model.so some trial & error is probably the best way to find out.I've never tried larger .vobs on my standalones.

I have actually had this problem before... you may have a european formatted dvd... if its in PAL, an american dvd player will not support it. NTSC is the format for the United States. since you may be getting your movie from Europe, you might want to find a converter or just get an american copy.
