DVD generally stands for Digital Video Disc or Digital Versatile Disc. There are VOB, IFO, BUP files in the folder named VIDEO_TS, under the DVD folder. The VOB files generally contain showing data like video, audio, subtitle, etc. And coupled with the fact that almost all televisions in Europe and Australasia are capable of displaying NTSC video (at the very least, in black and white), means that consumers in these regions have a huge choice of discs.

Why convert Blu-ray/DVD to NTSC VOB format?

As we know, video files on Blu-ray/DVD are usually large files of serveral GBs, which are to be compatible with the operation system. Chapters of the video are indexed by an additional .inf file rather than by the video files. So people may want to rip the chapters out with the minimum loss of quality. That is why you need to convert Blu-ray DVD to NTSB VOB.

To help you get it done, Pavtube BDMagic is needed which works with 1:1 backup solution with keeping all the disc titles and chapter structure perfectly and convert Blu-ray/DVD to MKV/MP4/MOV/M4V/MPG/FLV/AVI/WMV, etc. Well I haven’t got the chance to try every profile, but it’s really the best Blu-ray/DVD backup tool I’ve met ever; I mean it’s ease of use, not fuss and simple to follow. Next is a simple step-by-step tutorial on how to complete the Blu-ray/DVD to NTSC VOB task and burn the converted video into playable DVD. 

How to Backup, Rip Blu-ray/DVD to NTSC VOB format

Step 1. Insert your Blu-ray/DVD disc into your BD drive, run Pavtube BDMagic and click "BD/DVD disc" icon to load movie from Blu-ray/DVD source(Disc, folder, ISO). Set your wanted subtitles and audio track from the drop-down box of "Subtitles" and "Audio" tab.  If you are a Mac user, try Pavtube BDMagic for Mac.

Step 2. Click the "Format" option, and choose "VOB format > DVD-Video Format - NTSC(*.vob)" as output format.



If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. Keep in mind the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
