Does anyone know of a program that will let me edit a vob file. Basically i want to take the last ripped vob file and delete all of the credits and save it as a vob.

I have come across a few movies that would fit on a blank dvd disc if i could get rid of the credits.

I'd love to know this too.I've been trying to do it all day, but tmpgenc seems to not write out the ac3 audio, and vodsplit doesn't seem to give any indication of what frame you're editing!

what software to use?

:D

After a lot of searching and trying, i found one that works..

It is called mpeg-vcr. You can import a vob and choose your start and end points.

Hope this helps!!;)

I think mpeg-vcr recompresses. I tried it on a friends machine, and
the trimmed clip is larger than the original!

any other solutions?

did u let it complete the operation? I notice is says while compliling its bigger, but when it finished it shaved 200megs off of mine. I still havent found anything else that edits vobs for size. I will keep looking. There has to be something out there:sly:

What I will do is re-rip the last vob file while monitoring the folder size (including the other VOB files) and just stop ripping when 4.38 gig has been reached, thats it!!! Then process the files using Derrow's IfoEdit program!!!

if u stop the re-rip of the last vob when u reach a certain size, dont u lose the ending of the movie?

I rip only the credits...in fact, i have 3 dvd's with only credits on them.

So many fonts, layouts and scroll-speeds...

This method was not intended for files combined are say.....6 Gig. This works well if you need to shave a little.

The best for this is vstrip!

Just load the last vob-file, and enter a start-lba and an end-lba, and let vstrip run.

After that you'll have your VOB without credits. Of course, first you must somehow check out, at what end-lba the credits start.
