So, I'm trying to rip this old DVD and I don't have a very good ripping program, so I decided to simply copy the VOB files from the DVD, convert them to AVI and append them.
But I can't seem to convert them correctly. MPC says they're 350x240 but GSpot says they're 720x576. Several pieces of software say they're 25fps but they're clearly far smoother so 50fps seems more likely.
No matter what program I use I get a bad result.
On top of that, VirtualDub won't read one of the VOB files (for some reason), and Handbrake won't read directly from the disc..
Bah. What am I doing wrong?

Thread: Can't seem to convert VOB files
Never just copy the vob files. Copy the ENTIRE video_ts folder. But if it's a commercial dvd then use a decrypter. It might work with the old dvddecrypter or dvd shrink. Or get a background decrypter like anydvd (free trial).
Then open the video_ts folder in mpc or the converter like handbrake.
If it fails then post the details from the first big vob files. Use mediainfo, open file, view->text.

And yes, follow Baldrick's advice and use a decrypter on them to get them to the hard drive. Today seems to be a day for messed up DVDs.
