When I ripped a DVD using dvd::rip, the main title was split into several 1GB VOB files. How can I join them to make a single VOB file that contains the whole title?


The size of a .VOB container file is, by definition of the DVD specification, limited to 1 GByte (1048 MB).

If we need a file that contains a whole movie, then we need to convert these files to another container (e.g. xvid, MKV, plain MPEG etc.), e.g. by using ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -i snatch_1.vob -f avi -vcodec mpeg4 -b 800k -g 300 -bf 2 -acodec libmp3lame -ab 128k snatch.avi (from manpage)

Concatenating video files can only be done with some formats (e.g. MPEG).

Go to the video_ts folder with terminal. For example /Videos/DVD/VIDEO_TS cat VTS_01_1.VOB VTS_01_2.VOB VTS_01_3.VOB > ../Your_Joined_File.VOB

Your joined file is on folder /Videos/DVD
