Insert VOB file on compilation DVD?

Hi all,
I'm making a compilation DVD of our last 4 video projects for a church basketball league, but I've only got raw video for 3 of them; the other is a DVD and the original files aren't available.

I transferred the DVD files to my computer and converted them successfully to mp2/wav, loaded the other 3 video project files (also in mp2/wav format), then used the "make a DVD folder" in Sonic MyDVD to preview the results. The video from the raw files turned out fine, but the re-re-compressed DVD-ripped files didn't do well, looks like you're watching it on an acid trip (think lots of trails).

I am wondering if I can replace the offending files in the DVD folder on the disk with the original DVD files before burning, and if so, do I just copy over and appropriately rename the two VOB files or do I also have to copy over the IFO and BUP files?

The DVD is set up to open up with a main screen with animated chapter buttons for each of the 4 video segments and runs through the following videos from whichever video you start.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jeff K.

i've been wanting to do this too. anyone know? i thought there was a way to directly copy+paste .vob files right into the DVD authoring software. it shouldn't go through any recompression.

It's possible with the right tools, knowledge and patience but
that will probably be very very hard to do. I think the problem is
in converting. What you want to do is de-mux instead of convert.

This will extract the original streams from a VOB file and allow
you to use the original streams. Is there more then 1 VOB file?
If so I'm not sure if you can get by without re-encoding (in theory
you should be able to).

I would try bbTools to demux the VOB file and get the original
streams back. You can it here: www.doom9.org
(go to downloads and then to VOB Tools)

Hi Jeff,

Just checked out the demo of Ulead DVDWorkshop 2 - and there you can ADD .VOB files from a source DVD/HDD to your compilation - without recompressing them.

Don't know if it is of any help to you.
