Additional Tips:

1. What are the PC/Mac system requirements for 4K playback?

I can give you some data points as I tested multiple configurations to find out myself. My requirements were 4Kp60. The tests were done using a 4k capable monitor connected via displayport (the monitor however was not mine). I tested this a few months ago, I believe.

Tests, in order of memory:
i7-4770k using integrated GPU: 4k@60, no issues.
EVGA nVidia GTX 750Ti: 4k@60, no issues.
i7-2600k using integrated GPU: 4k@60, no issues.
G540 Celeron CPU (2013 CPU) using integrated GPU: 4k@30 no issues, 4k@60 a slight slowdown during high action scenes. CPU was pegged @ 100% for majority of the scenes. I believe that this chip is using the same integrated GPU as the 2600k, so it may have simply been an issue of the performance capabilities of the chip.
EVGA nVidia GTX 680: 4k@60, no issues.

Of course, source video encoding is the most important aspect of these tests, so I tested with three sources:
Youtube 4k video scene (VP8 codec, I think?)
Netflix, House of Cards S2,Ep1 title sequence (Silverlight? Windows 8.1 OS).
Some random MKV that I don’t remember the codec of and I’m not sure why I mentioned it.

Conclusion, most modern GPUs and Intel CPUs can handle the scenes relatively well.

2. Some guys recommend third-party 4K video player apps like VLC, DivX Player, Media Player Classic, but all of them can’t be an ultimate solution for all 4K videos. Based on out testing, we found VLC can’t support 4K video well, Media Player Classic can play 4K movies but only on Windows… To have a smooth 4K playback on Mac/Windows, this professional 4K Ultra HD Video Converter is the best choice.

How can I make VOB editable in Windows Movie Maker

I usually receive my stuff in a format that I can work in Windows Movie Maker perfectly, but when I got and import some VOB to Windows Movie Maker, the files can’t be recognized. What I want to do with the current project is take the VOB I have and convert it for editing with Windows Movie Maker.

After getting some reviews online and multiple testing, I got some clues. The main reason why you can not transfer VOB video files to Windows (Live) Movie Maker, is that WMM still can’t support VOB format. As far as I know, VOB is basically a MPEG-2 video file which is stored in Video_TS folder in a DVD. As this kind of video file usually contains one or several audio tracks and subtitle tracks that are multiplexed together into one stream form, it is not so easy to playback or edit. In order to open and edit VOB files in Windows Movie Maker smoothly, you need to convert .vob to Windows Movie Maker supported video formats like WMV, ASF, MPG (MPEG-1) and AVI (DV-AVI).

To get the work done, we can get some help from Brorosft Video Converter. It is an optimal VOB converter for you, which can help you change VOB into a different format like WMV, MPG, AVI with least quality loss. You should then be able to import the new file into Windows Movie Maker with smooth editing without any trouble.

How to Convert VOB for Editing in Windows Movie Maker

1. Download, install and run the VOB video converter, and then click the “Add” button to load the .vob videos. You can also use the drag-and-drop method to load the media files to the program.

2. Choose Output Format. Click Format bar and choose “HD Video” > “WMV HD(*.wmv)” as the output video format. AVI is also the choice.

Tip: If you like, adjust video and audio parameters, including the Bitrate of Video and Audio, the Codec of Video and Audio, Video Size, Sample Rate, Frame Rate, Audio Channels, etc., by clicking the Settings button on the main interface for getting the best quality.

3. Click the “Convert” icon under the preview window to start encoding VOB to WMV/AVI for using in Windows Movie Maker.
