DVD to WMV-Help to Edit DVD VOB videos in Windows Movie Maker

How-to tip helps you to get an easy workaround for editing DVD VOB files in Windows Movie Maker by converting DVD VOB to WMM friendly video format on Windows(10).

Windows Movie Maker is freeware video editing software by Microsoft. I’ve used it for years. But I have a painful experience when importing DVD VOB videos into Windows Movie Maker for creating a personal video. Windows Movie Maker cannot open the .vob files in Win 8.1pro. The audio version opens, but not the video.

Having a search on Google and find many people have the same problem. Something exciting, some guys have shared their solutions to solve the issue. The main reason why you can not transfer DVD VOB video files to Windows (Live) Movie Maker is that WMM still can’t recognize DVD VOB format. As far as I know VOB is basically a MPEG-2 video file which is stored in Video_TS folder in a DVD. As this kind of video file usually contains one or several audio tracks and subtitle tracks that are multiplexed together into one stream form, it is not so easy to playback or edit. To edit DVD VOB in Windows Movie Maker smoothly, you simply need a DVD VOB Converter to convert VOB file to Windows Movie Maker-friendly format. The following paragraphs are all about how to convert VOB to WMM step by step.

How to Convert and Add DVD VOB files to Windows Movie Maker

Step 1- Add VOB files: Simply drag-and-drop your .vob file to the main window of this program or click “Add” icon to load your .vob video. You can add multiple files at a time an convert them in batch.

The program also allows you to merge several video clips into a single video file for a seamless playback. Just choose the “Merge into one file” option.

Step 2- Select Windows Movie Maker supported format: Since Windows Movie Maker only supports WMV, ASF, MPG (MPEG-1) and AVI (DV-AVI), you can choose one format of them. Here I recommend “HD Video” > “WMV HD(*.wmv)” as the output video format.

Step 3 – Start VOB to Windows Movie Maker conversion: Simply click the “Convert” button to start encoding VOB to WMV, everything else will be automated. If you have added quite a bunch of video files, it would take some time to convert. In such case, you can click Option and tick the box “Shut down the computer after conversion”.

After the conversion, click “Open” to locate the result videos and then you can import the converted files to Windows Movie Make for editing via its “Import video” option.
