How to rip DVD and convert video between any video formats?

Read this guide and learn how to rip a DVD to all modern video formats and convert video between any video formats, including AVI, DivX, XviD (*.avi, *.divx, *.div), MPEG-4, H.264 (*.mp4, *.m4v), MPEG-1, MPEG-2 (*.mpeg, *.mpg), DVD (*.ifo, *.vob), Quick Time (*.mov, *.qt), WMV, WMV-HD (*.wmv, *.asf), 3GPP, H.263 (*.3gp, *.3g2, *.3gpp, *.3gp2), Real Video (*.rm, *.rmvb), SWF (*.swf) using AVS Video Converter from AVS Video Tools.


This program has a very simple and intuitive interface. The "learning curve" is near zero. You will start working from the first launch. All you do is enter in the video or DVD to be converted, where you want it to be stored and the location of your CD/DVD Burner or Portable Media Device and the software does the rest. Just follow step by step instructions below:

Step1. Download AVS Video Converter
For more features about it, you can refer here.

Step2. Launch AVS Video Converter
Start > All Programs > AVS Media > AVS Video Tools > AVS Video Converter

Step3. Select Output File Type
Click the To AVI or To DVD or To MP4 or To 3GP or To MOV or To WMV or To RM or To SWF button along the top of the interface.
Step4. Choose Video File or DVD
Click the uppermost Browse button on the right. Navigate to the location where you keep your video files or DVDs, and select the video that you would like to convert. Click Open.
Note: When your input is a DVD Disc, you will need to select the path to your source file: X://Video_TS/Video_TS.IFO. "X" stands for your DVD-ROM or the hard disk drive folder where your DVD is stored.
It is important to select the IFO file, rather than VOB or VRO file, because the IFO file contains the information about the entire DVD structure and this way you will avoid audio and video de-synch problems when converting. Also, most DVDs have several VOB or VRO files (files with actual video) and if you convert VOBs or VROs instead of IFO, you will have to merge them afterwards, which is not the case with the IFO files.Anyway if you have only VRO or VOB files, select them. AVS Video Converter converts these files perfectly too.
Step5. Select the Output Location
Click the bottom Browse button on the right. Choose the location where you would like to save your converted video file. Click Save.
Step6. Select the Output Format Profile
In the list of Profiles select one of the available profiles or click Edit Profile button to manually set the output video profile parameters.
Step7. Convert Video
Click Convert Now and step away from the computer (processor performance will be seriously affected during conversion). If you want to watch the progress while you convert, click the Advanced button until the viewing screen pops out of the bottom.
avs-video-tools-6.png Besides this you can also refer to other tools such as blu ray ripper to get more information

Or you can visit dvd burning software to find some useful information about how to burn dvd to your pc.

I do hope these resources can help you. good luck to you!

Easy way to burn WMV video to DVD and play on a DVD player

One of the most popular video formats used with computers and found on the web is WMV. WMV is wide compatibility with Windows PCs. it short for Windows Media Video.

Can not play vod file on computer

I assume you mean VOB. I have not heard of a VOD file...

If you have gotten your hands on a VOB file somehow, chances are they have been copied/extracted from a DVD. VOB stands for DVD Video Object and is the core file of a DVD containing the actual movie data, an MPEG movie stream and the supported audio.
To play the VOB files, you need to have a DVD player that supports VOB format. However, if you have the Windows Media Player (version 12 or higher) or VLC Media Player, it is good enough to play the file. Note that you will see a prompt telling you that it is an unsupported format, don't worry about it and just play it anyways. It will play just fine.
If you want to obtain the VOB file from a DVD for some reason, just open the DVD in Windows Explorer instead of playing it through a media player. The VOB file would most likely be under the VIDEO_TS folder. Some other files that you will also see in the folder are IFO and BUP. The IFO files are the information files containing meta data about the DVD and instructions for the DVD player on how to handle the disc. The BUP file is simply a backup copy of IFO files.
If you want to convert VOB file to AVI or a similar format, aviNET is a great tool to do that

I just burn a writeable cd from my desktop pc using windowa movie maker. I can play it back on my pc no problem but when I insert it into my dvd player it reads no supported files used high...

Computers use video files such as AVI, WMV, MPG etc.

DVD players use VOB video files, and will not recognise the computer video files.

Unfortunately, Windows Moive Maker cannot create VOB files - you will need another piece of software to convert the WMV file Windows Movie Maker creates to a VOB.

A lot of disc burning programs (e.g. Nero) include video converters. See if you've already got one on you computer.

If not, try Googling 'WMV to VOB'. There's quite a few free ones out there.

Hope this helps,

Dvd conversion

If your movie on your computer is in VOB format then Nero will burn it to a DVD which you can view on any DVD player. If the files are in another format you'll need to first convert to VOB format. If you need file conversion software there are many available for purchase and download, not very expensive, in the $25-$45 range or so. You can download most for a trial use to see which you like best, which does the job you need.

Hope this help. JR
