.VOB File Extension
File Type 1DVD Video Object File
What is a VOB file?
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.
Since most commercial DVDs use some type of copyright protection, the VOB file extracted from the DVD may be encrypted, which may result in an error when trying to copy the file to another location. There are a number of decrypting programs available for playing the VOB file without the proper credentials, however, the programs may be illegal in certain countries.
