I'm trying to edit a .VOB file that contains me and my wife's wedding ceremony. The first half of the file is a family video of my wife's cousin and her kids the second half is our wedding. I'd like to edit out the first half hour, but unfortunately, they no longer have the original file or DVD. Her cousin's husband thought he was a tech wiz and ripped the file as a .VOB which is a DVD file. Apparently. .VOB files are not editable in an editor with a timeline because I guess .VOB files aren't tied to a length?

I find this odd because I can play in VLC player, but when I try to edit it in OpenShot or convert the clip with a VOB converter it only reads as a one second clip. Any video editing experts out there who can help me out?

Edit: VOB not BOV

Could you play the file and record it as it plays in order to get it in another format? Maybe with a capture card or a program that can record it.

Or, what about burning to a playable dvd, then re ripping the DVD?

No DVD burner... I was looking at maybe seeing if Daemon Tools Virtual optical drive would be able to mount the file, but it isn't free anymore frown.gif

ffmpeg

You might even be able to do it without recompression, just cut it.
Most of the free/freemium/adwarecrap tools do the same as ffmpeg just with a GUI that's why they want your $$$.
But most things can be done with just the free ffmpeg, audio and video wise.

If you can play it in VLC you can convert it with VLC. Click on Media > Convert/Save...
You might need mess around with the settings for encoding the output until you find one your editor is happy with.

You don't need no editor, it's literally just 10 seconds in command line with ffmpeg XD
Code:
ffmpeg -i input_file -ss 00:30:00 -to 01:00:00 -c copy -map 0 output_file
Extract 30-60min part of the clip, you can trim both start and end or just one of them.
At the same time you can recompress it from what probably is MPEG2 to H264 or H265 and audio to Opus.

This will probably help BUT VOB doesn't track the time, so I can't tell where the cousin's video ends and where the wedding video begins. When I skip around in VLC it just restarts the time counter and there is no visual queue as to where in the video I am.

Couldn't get anything to work but handbrake. Seems I saved the best option for last and it worked! rolleyes.gif

Thanks for the suggestion, I walked away from this knowing you can do simple cuts with VLC. TIL! biggrin.gif
