EE Pros,

I have a DVD TV Show (VOB file) that plays in Windows media but will not play as an iTunes file (MPEG4).  How do I convert a VOB file to an MPEG4 file so I can play it on iTunes/iPad?

Is there some free conversion software for doing this?

Much thanks,

B.

Thanks both of you.

Unfortunately the first winxdvd doesn't support enough Codics to properly import most any file and the Wonderware video converter is a 30 day trial version with a watermark.  For the cost of the Wonderware SW, I could just buy the Apple versions of the TV Shows.  Any other ideas on this?  Is there not true free conversion software out there for this?

yep read my post again as I kinda guessed the first few suggestions were not what you wanted.

  Handbrake is one choice that fits your criteria.

Handbrake works!  Thank you for taking the time to give me the freeware that makes VOB to MP4 conversions.  Saved me $50!

Thanks again,
