Split up .vob files on multiple disks

Just recently encoded an avi > dvd. I am left with a video_ts folder and audio_ts folder as usual...But when i try to burn the files onto the dvd the size is indeed to big. I dont to rencode using a lower quality.

Is there any way to split up .vob files across multiple disks? Arent the .vob files just like single tracks?

Re: Split up .vob files on multiple disks

Yes I believe so.
I'll assume that the video_ts folder looks like this:-
VIDEO_TS.BUP
VIDEO_TS.IFO
VTS_01_0.BUP
VTS_01_0.IFO
VTS_01_1.VOB
VTS_01_2.VOB
VTS_01_3.VOB
VTS_01_4.VOB
VTS_01_5.VOB
VTS_01_6.VOB

Create another folder with Video_ts in it.
Move the last 2 vobs to the new directory so that the existing directory contains less than 4.7gb.
Run an app called Ifoedit which has a tab to create new ifo's. Do this for your existing folder selecting the first vob in the series. This should give you disk1.
Do the same for the new folder, perhaps renaming to vts_01_1.vob & _2.vob. This should give you disk2.
Ifoedit is free , just google for it.
I've assume that there's nothing fancy about what you've created , like menues.
Hope this helps.

Tried your method. That method works for the 1st disk perfectly but the 2nd disk wont play properly. No matter how much you forward it will keep starting over from the beggining.

Well it worked for me, playing it with PowerDVD. Did you check the Destination directory for IFOs same as source? And did you start with 2 directories with only the required vobs in each.

However there is another way that might work. Run Ifoedit, open the vts_01_0.ifo file (i assume that'll be present)..
Select VOB Extras & check the split to 2 DVD-Rs & take it from there. You'll need to select directory 1 & directory 2 etc.

I should emphasise that I've never done this , I'm only guessing.

Re: Split up .vob files on multiple disks

Thank you. What i did was encode a new video_ts folder with a compatible size. Then use the previous folder (with the 11.7gb size) And copy/replace the first seven .vob files (as this was the number of .vob files in the new one). Then repeat for the 2nd dvd.

So basically a switch up, you dont even have to edit the .ifo files, as you long as you have the same amount of .vob files.

Re: Split up .vob files on multiple disks

How big is the file that you are splitting. There is no reason that you can't using a program such as DvdShrink to compress a 5.5g file down to 4.4 without any noticable loss of quality.

Re: Split up .vob files on multiple disks

Yup. That's a bit large to be shrinking. Splitting was the best way to go.
