Compressing a VOB file ??

  WallyD 13:51 20 May 2004

Long in the tooth I maybe but I still like to try and keep up to the modern stuff but must rely on mags and you good people. Nuff said.
Using DVD Shrink I removed a few VOB files which I found out I could run these in Power DVD.
How can I compress these VOBs to fit onto a CD.
Before anyone sugests I,m doing anything illegal then forget it as I just play around with my computer and get satisfaction from doing this.
Many thanks

You can't compess them, but you can convert them to, say DivX using Vidomi, or any one of numerous programs. click here

VOB files are basically mpeg files. These are already heavily compressed. Further compression leads to a degredation of the quality.

Having said that, you already have a tool which compresses VOB's - DVDshrink. One of the main uses of DVDshrink is to compress two layer DVDs on to single layer discs. I think there is a manual option for defining the amount of compression.

What is worth considering is the resolution required. DVDs have 720 x 576 resolution. If you wish to display on a pc in a small window, you may only need a resolution of say 200 x 150. I suspect you will get better results converting them as suggested above.
