    You'll never believe this - all I did was copy the .vob file to my hard drive and rename the file with an .mpeg extension. Worked beautifully! (How simple is that?)

    I downloaded and tried the Virtual Dub. I couldn't get to import any mpeg or vob files. Maybe I was doing something wrong.

    Bit late in posting but there's an excellent tool for free called VirtualDub http://www.virtualdub.org/. It's not for the faint hearted but is worth the effort if youyou're on a tight budget.

    I think you've made a wise choice in Ulead's product. I reckon all their stuff is underrated. Adobe's Premier Elements is good too.

    Incidentally how did you convert the .vobs to .mpegs, please? Currently I'm having trouble doing this with a DVD of a friend's home movies of his holidays.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Failing that, if you have Nero 6 then you can import the vob into a movie
    eand export it as mpeg.

    I'll think I'll give it a go in about 29 days - play time permitted.

    Sorry forgot to say watch the system requirements for Elements: it won't run on some AMD chips i.e. my Athlon!

    CPU requirements are Intel® Pentium® 4, M, D, or Extreme Edition, or AMD Opteron or Athlon 64 (SSE2 support required) only.

    Mark - sorry I was talking about Nero 6 OEM version - Nero Express is a
    different animal.

    Contact me off group and I'll try and help you out.

    You know where I am.

    Thanks for the quick responses.

    I tried renaming the extension without success. Nero Vision Express hangs
    when trying to import the .vob. Hmmm... I'll try a Nero reinstall.

    I've no idea how the DVD was made as my friend gave his DV footage to a mate
    to produce the DVD for him. The original DV footage has long since gone so
    I'm stuck with this "odd".vob file. I'll have a go with some ripping
    software and see what happens.

    All this just to get a .wmv movie on his homepage. How come the 20 minute
    jobs always take hours?

    Virtual dub is quite restrictive but it is the best price possible (free)
