Hello. I have a question about converting VOB fiels to MPGs. I really just wanted to rip my Sony Hi8s I have laying around from my camcorder. I recently bought the Pinnacle Dazzle from Woot because that seemed like the easiest way to do it. I can go straight to a DVD no problem, however I want to edit the video first. Each tape contains a hodgepodge of subjects and I'd like to regroup them and then burn them onto separate DVDs with chapters and fancy menus and such for the family.
The Dazzle rips to my hard drive as a VOB, BUP,and IFO files. I find these to difficutl to edit with my simple Roxio DVD maker software so I wanted to convert them to MPEG. How can I do that?
I've seen some nonsense where a guy claims you just change the file extension but that didn't work. I also couldnt' get some programs like StreamClip to work properly. Any suggestions? Thanks.
