    Default Ripped DVDs - .VOB

    On my home network I have my my DVD collection which I have ripped. Upon ripping the DVD's they each created their own VIDEO_TS directory which contains their various .VOB, .IFO, and .BUP files. My problem / question is that Mezzmo sees each of these ,VOB files as a separate video. Anyone know how to resolve this issue?

    At the moment Mezzmo can only play these individually, however we plan to support playing them as a single movie in a future update.

    I have been looking for a media server that will play vob files sequentially. I currently have a large dvd library ripped to disk and would like to preserve the original format so that I can convert to other formats in the future if needed. If there is an alternative solution to the vob files please let me know. I currently use iSkysoft DVD ripper for conversion.

    I have tried to create a playlist for a single movie but this still only plays the single vob file.

    I like what I have seen in your application and hope I can find a way to maintian a library that the media server software and conversion software can both utilize. Can you tell me when you may have this capability or an alternative to the vob files.

    You could either use a VOB join tool (search Google for one - there are quite a few available), or transcode your ripped DVDs into a new single file format (which would take less disk space, allow you to use only one file per movie, but would lose some video quality in the process).

    There quite a lot of tools to re-encode ripped DVDs. Personally I use MediaCoder which is free, however it isn't really aimed at novice users, so I can't recommend it unless you were already familiar with codecs, containers, etc... In that case, a commercial product that would be easier to use might be a better choice. Conceiva seem to have such a product - Dennis or someone else at Conceiva might be better positioned than me to tell you if that product could serve your needs (I have never tried it personally).

    RMerlin is right, basically at the moment the only way to watch VOB files as a single movie is to re-code them as a single file. We do have plans for a future version of Mezzmo to do this for you automatically, but I don't have an ETA on that.

    Regarding ConvertHQ (Conceiva's product), it will be discontinued, so I cannot recommend using it at this stage, as most probably it will not be updated.

    Default Any update on this feature?

    I need this feature, and it is pretty much the only thing holding me up from buying it.

    Sorry, no update on this yet. Most probably it won't be developed until the next major update is released with subtitles and pre-transcoding.

    I had the same problem. My Solution: Convert them to DVD-R Size and burn them on a DVD-RW. U can now watch the movie and use the main menu. The convert and the burning process takes about 25 min. The picture quality is good enough and u nedd less space on your hdd...

    I found that DVD Shrink (free) works to combine VOB files. Try (http://dvd-shrink.en.softonic.com/). I've used it and it seems to work ok. To combine VOB files make sure u uncheck "split VOB files" in preferences under edit. Have fun.
