I have heard that the VLC Player is one of the best open source media players out there, ESPECIALLY for HD Video files. But I’ve been having trouble playing .vob files in VLC. The videos don’t load for a while, and then VLC freezes and I have to force quit. What I eagerly want to know is the best solution to playing VOB in VLC successfully?
After reading several threads, I found that many users have met the VLC VOB playback issues: the audio won’t work at all; when open VLC, it just loads .vob forever…
Well, no worry. I’ve figured out the reasons and solution to the problem. Actually, there are a number of reasons when it comes to these problems. These reasons vary, one reason behind it is that your VLC media player is not associated with .vob files. You need to associate it with .vob files for it to function properly. On the other hand, your player must be lacking all the needed codecs.
If you don’t wanna rack your brains trying to figure out these reasons and workarounds, just follow this simple solution. Since VOB format, a movie data file stored in VIDEO_TS folder of a DVD disc is not so friendly for VLC, you’d better convert VOB to MP4, AVI or other common video formats.
