    Playing Large VOB Files

    Basically I've got a couple of vob files that are over 4gb in size and any program I use to play them with I can only hear the sound, no video output

    Iv'e tried using vlc, powerdvd, wmp, divx, mpc, but all have the same result, sound with no video. (Normal DVD's work fine btw). I have also tried to convert them into a different file format, but SUPER doesn't recognise the files.

    Any ideas?

    Re: Playing Large VOB Files

    something odd is going on already if the files are 4 gig - that should never be the case with dvd

    perhaps someone copied the files off a disc without removing the css protection?

    Since the vobs are >2gb, nero won't let me re-burn it is a video dvd i have to create a dvd udf. In doing so the files are rendered useless as sound no longer works.

    Re: Playing Large VOB Files

    Sounds like a corrupt codec, lack of memory maybe? Have you tried them on a different PC? Maybe the files are corrupt?
    Bit of an odd one...

    Re: Playing Large VOB Files

    i highly doubt its a memory problem as i have 2gb on board. Although i do suspect it is a corrupt file, ut sice this is happening to all the vobs i have above the standard dvd resolution i think its a codec problem, just having a tough time finding the riight codec.

    Re: Playing Large VOB Files

    .vob files can be just about any size, but the DVD spec calls for them to be 1GB or less.

    I would suspect they have been merged together when copied off a DVD.

    have a look at some of the tools on Doom9.net - The Definitive DVD Backup Resource as opposed to just trying to play then, have a look to see if anything will analyse them report any problems back to you.
