There were times when movies and music videos can be found only on CDs. DVDs were unknown back then. And now CDs are almost out of movie and music video markets, only music market remains. Till then up to now DVDs are great sources of movies and music videos or other audio visuals or simply videos. Movies are mostly sold through DVDs, but DVDs are not actually portable. Well, they are portable (if you think about carrying them only) but not if you want to play them anywhere. In that sense they are not really portable. You will require a DVD player or a DVD ROM at least to play a DVD.
Suppose you got your laptop with you. It will have the DVD ROM but then again you will have to carry the DVD with you as well. And what if, you need to play a lot of videos from different DVDs? Are you going to carry them all with you? Again you will have to enter the disc and show the video and then get it out only to enter a new one. This is seriously tiresome and messy. It is much easier to just copy them all in the laptop and play them one by one. There is a problem as well. DVD files are usually above 4 GB. So, it will take up a lot of spaces of your laptop. Otherwise if you want to play them on your iPhone or iPod you won’t be able to either. You cannot play a DVD on those. You cannot even import them. You cannot copy them into your device and play them either cause VOB format is not supported. You need to change that VOB to MOV.
You may also want to edit some of the videos that you have or merge different videos together to keep the flow.
So, what is the point in saying all of these? Is there anything that can solve all those problems? Well, video converters are there to solve the problems. With those you can convert VOB to MOV or some other format that is supported by the converter.
There are a quite good number of converters out there but not all of them are to be trusted. Some are just big mouth software with null performance record. So you have to be careful. You can use The Total Video Converter for Mac by Effectmatrix. It is said to be a multi format converter. Its specification says that it supports the following formats: RMVB, RM, 3GP, 3G2, PSP, MPG, MPEG, DVB, VOB, ASF, WMV, AVI, FLV (Flash), FLI, FLC, GIF, DVD, CDA, VCD, MP3, MP2, SWF, RA, WAV, WMA, Ogg, AMR, AC3, AU, MP4.
Well that is a lot of format. But the funny thing is that the support list does not include MOV or M4V yet the video converter is developed for Mac. MOV, MP4 and M4V (these are the QuickTime Video format by Apple) are the three extensions that all Apple products support yet a converter for Mac does not support the formats which is suspicious actually. And this software can be found on some sites that call it free but it is not. Only the trial version is free. So if you are looking for a free VOB to MOV converter on Mac, you won’t be happy with this one.
So, you should use well reputed software that is known and trusted by users, a converter that has credibility and that actually does what it says. Wondershare’s Video Converter Pro for Mac is a well known and appreciated converter. It is very easy to use, supports a lot of video formats to choose as input and output, allows video editing and many more. You can be ensured of the quality of video after conversion with this converter. You won’t have to worry about carrying one or two DVD bag anymore or get angry over not being able to play DVDs on iPhone or iPod. This converter is the solution.
