    Hello everyone,

    I want to convert some video files on a DVD (VOB FIles) to AVI? What freeware software could I use to do this? I know this must be pretty straight forward but I don't know what to use.

    AVI is a container, not a format. An "AVI": can comntain files encoded with DivX, MPEG2, Xvid, h264, QuickTime, huffyuv or Lagarith or UTC losslessly compressed video, and any number of other codecs. As Baldrick suggests, you might want to let us know how you intend to play or mount your final output.

  4. With a basic question such as this, 99% of the time it's an XviD AVI that's wanted. You can load the first VOB into AutoGK (the rest will load automatically) and it'll make an XviD AVI easily.

    But I could be wrong about what's wanted.

    You can watch vobs on any computer. With for example vlc. Or use vob2mpg to make a single file from a dvd vobset(no reconversion=no quality loss).

    Or use autogk if you want to shrink to smaller avi file.
