Basically, I am looking for a program that can edit VOB files frame-by-frame created on DVD-RW by my Philips set-top DVD recorder, so that I can then re-write the edited DVD.
I seem to be struggling in finding a program that can actually import VOB files and export them in this way. Can anyone help please?

mpg2vcr + DVDMF2
If these files are actual DVD-Video compliant VOB files, there are a number of tools to demux into MPG2 video and the audio streams (see tools section LEFT <-- ). If you go that way, at some point you would have to deal with audio sync issues. The only app I know of off the top of my head that can deal directly with VOBs for editing is made by PixelTools and it isn't cheap.
Also, it's very likely that you would not be able to edit on the frame-by-frame level, most MPG editors edit on the GOP level. Those other apps that may be able to import VOB as video (e.g. Premiere) would allow you to edit at frame level, but on export would completely re-encode the whole program!!!
It could be that the Phillips is really recording in DVD-VR mode, which allows greater editing features on the deck, but it'll be MUCH harder to find computer editing apps that accept this filetype (usually .VRO).
Wait a minute... If you've got a Phillips, isn't your disc a DVD+R/W?
It is a DVD+R/W Picky!
Cheers for your replies guys.
Can't find DVDMF2 by the way
I think what is meant is: Ulead DVD MovieFactory v2.
'Can't verify about the VOB editing for it, though
I have looked into this in a big way!
The best program to edit vob files is mpeg2vcr for definite. You can edit it and save it as an mpeg file without having to re-encode.
You can then use DVD Movie Factory to author menus etc and then burn.
I always extract the audio after using mpeg2vcr with dvd2avi. Then replace the audio in DVDMF2 with that wav file.
Hope this helps

Then you load IFOedit and create an IFO. Choose the first file and off you go.
Load all the files into your burning software and thats it.
