Attempting to convert video to mp4 using vlc

I'm trying to convert a vob file to mp4 using vlc 1.1.19. I select Media->Convert/Save and then I select the Disc Tab. Then I hit the Convert/Save button and get to this dialog:

I've filled in the destination file and changed the profile to MP4. I click start to get to this screen:

Where nothing appears to be happening and there is no error message. I try clicking on the record button but still nothing happens.

You might want to isolate (rip) the VOB file before running this process. You see that when you arrive at the Streaming screen after pressing the Convert/Save button, the full amount of time of your video is listed as 1 second.

If you DVD file has VOB files to choose from, be sure to explicitly choose the VOB file rather than leaving it as just E:. If the DVD does not have VOB files to list, you will have to rip them out first and then run your conversion process.

Before posting this, I ran a VOB to MP4 convert fine using VLC.
If you have no success then don't lose your time and use dedicated converters, free and good, as:
