VOB files as DVD media files usually have a DVD structure and can be encrypted. Though these files are MPEG-2 encoded, most TVs, such as Samsung TV, LG TV, Roku TV, etc., do not have support for the VOB format and cannot bypass the encryption either.
To play VOB files on TV without error, format conversion is often needed. You can convert VOB to MP4 (H.264/AAC) or change VOB to MPG/MPEG to make the VOB file playback on your TV. The next part introduces a powerful DVD VOB converter to convert VOB to TV format in easy steps. Read on to learn more details.
WonderFox DVD Video Converter is a professional program on Windows for handling DVD and video conversions. And it can be an impressive VOB converter to help you convert VOB to your desired formats. It can quickly convert VOB to MP4, MKV, AVI, MOV, MPG, and other mainstream formats. Moreover, it provides ready format settings for devices, including many smart TVs, and you may convert your VOB files to your TV format in just one click. The workflow is simple. You can follow the instructions below to convert your VOB files now.
Launch DVD Video Converter on your desktop. Then, click “Add Files” or “Load DVD Folder” to import your VOB files into the program.
Note. When you add your .vob files through the “Load DVD Folder” option, you will see all the DVD VOB files loaded with the main title/main movie auto-marked. If you want to convert all VOB files, you need to select other titles manually. The bottom “Merge all videos into one file” option can help you merge these VOB files.
On the right side of the interface, hit on the format image to open the output format page. Next, you can go to the “Video” category and select “MP4” as the output format. Or, you can explore the “Device” sections and choose your TV format. The provided TV formats include Samsung, Android, LG, Sony, Panasonic, Sharp, and others. If you want quick conversion, you can also go to the “1:1 Quick Copy” and convert VOB to MPG with the fastest speed and zero quality loss.
Tips. You can edit the selected profile in “Settings.” For example, you can modify the video and audio codec as H264 and AAC separately if you choose MP4 as the output format, for almost all TVs support MP4 encoded with H264 and AAC.
Finally, click the bottom three-dot button to select an output folder and hit “Run” to start the VOB-to-TV conversion. After the conversion, transfer the converted files to your USB flash drive and play the videos on your TV via the USB.
Converting VOB to a format supported by your TV is the best solution if you need to play the file on your TV via a USB flash drive. But it is not the only solution. Here are two more tips to help you easily play VOB files on TV.
You can set up a Plex server and use the Plex app on your smart TV to access the VOB files. Plex will auto-transcode the unsupported VOB files to be compatible with your TV in real time so you can play the video smoothly. It requires a stable network, though. Here is an introduction to how to use Plex.
If you have an Android TV, you can install the VLC media player that comes with a built-in VOB decoder to play back the VOB files.
