Any way to make these VOB, BUP and IFO files into something watchable?

Hi all,

 

A friend of mine sent me what we thought was video of one of our band gigs from a ways back, I think it was ripped off a DvD.  I tried combining the VOB files per instructions I found using copy /b but all it gives me is about 20 seconds of video/audio, but it should be longer.  These are the files I have, is there any way of knowing if this is actually usable or if something is missing?

 

           12,288 VIDEO_TS.BUP
           12,288 VIDEO_TS.IFO
          282,624 VIDEO_TS.VOB
                0 VTS_01_0.BUP
           14,336 VTS_01_0.IFO
      188,692,480 VTS_01_1.VOB
 
Totals to about 190 MB.

The quick and dirty way:

Make a copy of "VTS_01_1.VOB".

Rename "VTS_01_1.VOB" to "anythingyoulike.MPG" and ignore the Windows warning.

This file should play in any mediaplayer.

 

If you want the full DVD menu:

Place all the files in one folder and open the folder with VLC.

Or burn all the files (folder) to a DVD...

Thanks, thats the first thing I tried - it works but I only get about 20 seconds worth of video.  Does that mean that is all there is?  Based on the size I would expect a lot more - that amount of time would take up what, about 10 mb maybe?

If this also gives a 20 sec video, I fear that's it !

An old codec and a very high (constant) bitrate can indeed give such large files...

 

PS: If you don't want to install VLC there's a portable version (ZIP package).

Thanks for the suggestion - I can open the whole thing with VLC, so apparently it's all there.  Now the big question - how do I convert this into something usable in this day and age? :)  Was created in the early 2000s, would like to be able to rip it to something uploadable i.e. mpeg or avi.

 

Any ideas?

Just to make sure I understand you correct, it's the same lenght (20 sec) in VLC ?

 

If that's a fact then use the renamed file (mpg or mpeg) from the first suggestion.

This is uploadable to YouTube, Vimeo,...

 

If not or you find the mpg/mpeg file too big to upload then "any" video converter will make an .avi or mp4 out of these files.

I personally use XMedia Recode, it's free and supports most formats but it has a bit of a learning curve.

You can search Google for other "free video converters" but pay attention when you install them, uncheck unwanted extras.
