Looking for trial vob to mpeg convertor

Can anyone recommend a decent free/trial vob to mpeg convertor program? Has there been anything on the PCadvisor cover discs - I've looked but can't find one.

VOB is already in MPEG-2 format. Rename the extension to .mpg and it should still play on it's own in Media Player. If you have a DVD film that's copy protected, it won't play properly this way. If there is more than 1 file (0.99 GB ones) then NeroVision or a similar video editing program will join them up as you drag them into the timeline.

you could always try a program called MediaCoder ( click here ) that will convert almost any format to another, including vob's and music files...

but I didn't make myself clear. I want to be able to edit the videos and add some effects - they are home videos which I have copied from DV camcorder to home DVD player. I don't have S video out on the camcorder or usb/firewire, just phono and dv out. I have a firewire port on my pc. So I've got the video on DVD discs which is a straight copy from dv tapes. Windows movie player doesn't seem to recognise the video files but I'll copy them to my hard drive and rename like rodriguez suggests and see how I get on.
