How To Open VOB Files

VOB files—or Video Object files—contain DVD-Video media. VOB files can contain digital video, digital audio, subtitles, menus, and codecs stored together to function as one.

To experience high definition (HD) and 3-dimensional (3D) qualities of your VOB file, you should open your VOB file using a virtual DVD player. HowSpot recommends VLC Media Player for a premium viewing experience.
