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. It will ensure a perfect VOB importing, playing and editing workflow with Windows Movie Maker.
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.
After the conversion, click “Open” to locate the result videos and then you can import the converted files to Windows Movie Make for editing via its “Import video” option. Enjoy your editing work.
