A commercial DVD has a VOB size of 1,048,574 KB, or less if it is the last VOB.
DVD-Rs made on my stand alone DVD recorder produce VOB sizes of 1,048,xxx. Where xxx is just slightly less than 574. Iâ€™m presuming itâ€™s cutting as close to 1 GB as possible without going over.
Womble MPEG Video Wizard DVD authors VOBs with 1,048,574 KB.
VideoReDo TVSuite authors VOBs with 1,024,xxx KB.
Examples from the same video:
VOB 1 from my original DVD-R: 1,048,050 KB.
Viewing File Properties: 0.99 GB (1,073,203,200 bytes)
VOB 1 after Womble: 1,048,574 KB.
Properties: 0.99 GB (1,073,739,776 bytes)
VOB 1 after VideoReDo: 1,024,460 KB.
Properties: 0.97 GB (1,049,047,040 bytes)
At first I thought VideoReDo was figuring on 1,024 MB. But obviously file manager and properties say otherwise. What is VideoReDo doing that creates less than the 1 GB VOB size?
I like VideoReDo, but so far I have had to use their QuickStream fix on every video. Otherwise it will not properly play my programs. This supposedly corrects some errors and makes the file more compliant. But then it authors with less than the 1 GB size VOB standard, which to me would be less compliant.
Itâ€™s coming time to make a buying decision and I am concerned about VideoReDo’s quirks. Is the 1GB size really a standard, or just a maximum?
