How to Open and Edit VOB in Windows Movie Maker
Q: "Does anyone know why Windows Movie Maker cannot open the video portion of .vob files? The audio version opens, but not the video. Thanks for any replies!"

Windows Movie Maker can't open VOB files. Is there any method to work VOB files in Windwos Movie Maker flawlessly? Actually, VOB files that have been copied from a Video DVD are MPEG2 video files and are not natively supported in Windows Movie Maker. Even if software is installed that enables Windows Media Player to play the files... Movie Maker may still have issues. (Historically, MPG files have been problematic in all versions of Windows Movie Maker.)

No method is set in stone and always works but best bet would be to convert the VOB files to .WMV format before importing into Windows Movie Maker. There are many converters available on the net... some free, some retail, some better than others... the following software Brorsoft Video Converter is just one example that works well for me.

It is the right VOB to Windows Movie Maker converting program you need to convert, open and edit VOB files in WMM freely. This program could not only convert all kinds of VOB files to Windows Movie Maker edit-friendly WMV, but also convert other video files MKV, MP4, FLV, AVI, TiVo, MPG, H.264 to Windows Movie Maker for easy editing. Here is a step-by-step guide to convert VOB videos to Windows Movie Maker compatible formats.
