I tried ripping two different titles from a DVD and each of them ripped but when I play them back the image is pixelated and doesn't go back to normal. I didn't see any settings anywhere to change the system options or anything. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?
Appreciate the replies!

Thread: VOB2MPG produces pixelated video
So the file that VOB2MPG produced that I can play in Media Player was not a rip? It showed the video, although pixelated, and the audio was fine. Basically what I was looking to do was create mpg or other file type copies of my DVDs, which is what this software did, except the result was pixelated.
So are you saying I should rip the VOB files with another program and then use this one to convert them into mpgs? If that is the case, why was I able to create mpg files directly from the DVD itself?
Is there a way to create mpgs directly from the DVD that are not pixelated?
to join several mpg files...
on MacOSX & linux,
enim@user$ cat file1.mpg file2.mpg > filejoined.mpg
on Windows, try...
1. Open a blank text file.
2. Type copy /b *.mpg FullMovie.mpg
3. Save the file with a .Bat extension.
4. Save the text file as Joiner.Bat in a same directory where you have several mpg files from VOB2MPG.
5. Double click the Joiner.Bat file.
A combined file named FullMovie.mpg is created from all the mpg files in the folder.
The files on the dvd disk are copy-protected. Vob2mpg will attempt to convert those to mpg but CANNOT defeat the copy-protection so you end up with distorted video or the pixilation that you see.
Follow the advice as given as firstly RIP the files from the disk - do NOT simply copy/paste them - to your HDD. That process WILL remove the copy-protection and then you can use Vob2mpg to make a mpg WITHOUT pixelation.
Reread my post.
So ripping means copying the files from the DVD and removing copy protection? I thought it just meant copying them from the DVD into a file that was playable by you computer.
I was able to rip them into files I can use with another player. I will keep VOB2MPG in mind if I need to convert them into mpeg files.
Thanks for helping.
Like all terms, it has evolved and you now see the term 'DVDRip' which combines a standard RIP with a re-encode.
