Default Conversion Query

Where can I find a freeware program that can convert a dvd or vob files into an acceptable format for the ZVM ? What is the best format out of the options available avi or mpg or mpeg and which has the best compression so as not to use up too much space.

Any help would be appreciated.

Video codec: Divx (4/5) or Xvid
Audio Codec: MP3
Container: AVI
Video Bitrate: 600-1000kbps should be sufficient
Audio Bitrate: 128-192kbps

DVD Decrypter to decrypt/rip
AutoGK to convert to AVI.

Make sure that you select mp3 audio in AutoGK. Shoot for around 700 megs/hour.

Any of the programs I posted links to will convert a VOB file, I use AutoGK because it has the best quality, but it also takes the longest, the other programs should be faster. If you use AutoGK, just make sure to set the audio to MP3 under "Advanced Settings", like jmkeuning said. If you use iriverter, it already has a profile for the Vision:M, so just select that. If you use MediaCoder or Super, use the settings I suggested.

You can use AutoGK with the contents of the Video_TS folder. You just pick the appropriate IFO as the input file.

For example, this screenshot is from a ripped DVD with lots of VOBs. Look for the set of VOBs that is the "biggest." So here you can see that VTS_02 is about 4 gigs - this is the movie (the other things are probably special features, trailers, etc). So I circled the IFO that you would want to grab.



That said, from your question, it might seem that all you have is a VOB file? If this the case, the answer might be different, but you can also just grab that VOB as the input file. FYI - VOBs are just container files for MPEGs. The DVD structure limits the size of VOBs so the MPEG is split across mutiple VOB files.
