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
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.
