Q: “I have collected some DVD discs, I’m here asking the safe way to copy and backup VOB files from DVD discs. Any suggestions, thanks in advance!”
A VOB file is a movie data file from a DVD disc, typically stored in the VIDEO_TS folder at the root of the DVD. It contains a majority of the data stored on the disc which includes video, audio, subtitles, DVD menus and other navigation contents. VOB files are usually formatted as MPEG-2 system streams and can be opened by various video playback programs. The question is how can you copy and extract VOB files from DVD discs without quality loss? If you have no idea, just read this tutorial to get some hints.
Actually, it’s easy to copy the un-protected DVD discs to DVD Video_TS folders on PC, but it’s not an easy job to copy and extract the VOB files from commercial DVD discs, as most of commercial DVD discs are copy protected with CSS, Region, RCE, Sony ARccOS and PuppetLock, etc. To losslessly copy and extract VOB files from DVD discs, you’ll need some professional DVD ripping tool like Brorsoft DVD Ripper, which can remove all the protection from DVD discs and copy VOB files without any quality loss.
