Release Notes

This is a feature update of the VOB2MKV utility for copying the streams of a video track set (VTS*.VOB) for a single DVD title to a Matroska (MKV) container. In this release, VOB2MKV now supports muxing AC-3 audio streams, in addition to MPEG-2 video streams.

The README.TXT file included in the release artifacts has information about the VOB2MKV project, and how to install the DLLs needed by the console app. Being familiar with Microsoft DirectShow will help you understand how the application is designed. If you need help, feel free to create a new Discussions thread or a new Issue Tracker item.

The VOB2MKV application accepts two command-line parameters: the first argument names one of the VOB files from the DVD track (it will load the other VTS files associated with that VOB automatically), and the second argument is the path to the MKV output file. As the mux progresses, the time of most recent frame flushed to disk is written to standard output. When the mux finishes, the app exits in the normal way. It's pretty basic but it gets the job done.

The Matroska files produced by VOB2MKV can be played using SMPlayer or VLC Media Player, and can be rendered using the Western Digital HD Media Player. If you have a Matroska DirectShow splitter installed on your system, then any media rendering application that supports DirectShow (e.g. Windows Media Player) can be used.
