Converting Files

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.

In case the above suggestions don't meet your definition of free this one is what arguably many people use It's called Handbrake

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?

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

Thanks again,
