VOB files to MOV. FILES

VOB files to MOV. FILES

VOB files to MOV. FILES

A buddy asked me if I can convert his vob files to mov for manipulation in quicktime. I thought ya sure no problem. I was wrong.
IT'S my understanding that I can simply change the file extension but it isnt visible to me so I cant rename it.
Anygood program suggestions, I have tried a few.

THANKS for any help

RE: VOB files to MOV. FILES

Assuming you're using Windows XP, you can change a setting to show file extensions.  Its under Tools, Folder Options, View.  Uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types".  Then at least you can rename the extension.  I'm not sure that will be enough.  You probably need some tool to convert the file from one type to another.  I'd check download.com for video conversion software.

RE: VOB files to MOV. FILES

Thank you Mr. Programmer guy, I should have known that.
I have tried alot of different conversion software over the past day but now that it will be in mpg format I could have better luck.

WE appreciate your help.
