File compatibility--possible conversion


M

MAMBO_MAN

I used Pinnacle's Instant DVD recorder (has Dazzle as the analog converter)
to convert lots of parts of different VHS tapes (analog) to digital video
files onto DVD discs which were then copied to the PC.

One of these now-digital videos have the following names:
Folder = VIDEO_TS
Files in this folder:
VIDEO_TS.BUP
VIDEO_TS.IFO
VIDEO_TS.VOB
VTS_01_0.BUP
VTS_01_0.IFO
VTS_01_1.VOB
VTS_01_2.VOB

I have opened Movie Maker 2.1 and tried to import these files from my PC
folder into it to no avail. Is there any way to convert these files to one
of the formats acceptable to Window Moviemaker 2.1, so I can import these
files & start the movie process??

Thanks

On Request

What I use for the task of converting my .vob files to a compatible type for
Movie Maker: I use VirtualDub with its MPEG plugin.

http://www.virtualdub.org/download.html
http://fcchandler.home.comcast.net/~fcchandler/Plugins/MPEG2/index.html

Or this will work also:
http://fcchandler.home.comcast.net/~fcchandler/stable/index.html

There are other ways to tackle this, see this URL:

The only one I have used for vob files is VirtualDub with the MPEG2 plugin.
Hope this helps.
