How can I extract still images (jpeg?) from a VOB video file?


This is possible with transcode:

transcode -x mpeg2 -i video.vob -y im -F jpg -w 100 -o images 

-F of course is the output, -w is the quality, -i the video file, -x the transcoding. -o is the output base name. For more see the manual page. Also have a look at transcode export


sudo apt-get transcode

  • Perfect! The only thing I added was -o [outputFile] because the default output location is /dev/null – naftalimich May 10 '13 at 0:43
  • I'll amend that now :D – Rinzwind May 10 '13 at 0:43
