Convert DVD .VOB Files for Playback on Smart TV
"I have some old DVDs which have .VOB video files on them.?I want to copy them to my external hard drive which I generally use to playback content on my smart TV. I want to know if I should just change the .VOB extension to .mpeg for playback on my TV or should I use proper format conversion? I heard that .VOB are same as .mpeg.Thanks for guidance."
Have some DVD .vob files and wanna play these VOB files on Smart TV? Here we offers you two possible solutions.
Solution 1. For basic playback from computer to smart TV, for the odd standalone vob's, you can simply rename the .vob to .mpg then cast to the TV. But if it's part of a movie it doesn't really help.
