How to Rip and Convert DVD to VOB with DVD to VOB Ripper?

A VOB file (Video Object) is a container format in DVD-Video media. VOB can contain video, audio, subtitle and menu contents multiplexed together into a stream form. VOB is based on the MPEG program stream format, but with additional limitations and specifications in the private streams. While all VOB files are MPEG program streams, not all MPEG program streams comply with the definition for a VOB file. Next, I will introduce you a flexible way to convert DVD to VOB with DVDFab DVD Ripper, a powerful tool to convert DVD to various formats playable on various portable devices.
