CS6 - Cannot Open VOB Video File

Aug 20, 2012 2:03 AM

VOB is listed as a supported video file but it does not open via drag and drop or importing via video frames to layers. I get the message, "could not complete your request because video file could not be opened". Other supported video formats work. I am running CS6 64 bit on Windows. Any suggestions besides converting the VOB files?

    Does it play in Bridge?  If not probably will not in PS either.

    will it play in Apple Quicktime, which I believe is the engine for PS?

    VOB's (Video Object files) are wrapper, or containers. They usually just contain an MPEG-2 muxed AV Stream, but depending on how/where they were created, the first VOB can also contain DVD Menus, and navigation instructions. Again, depending on how/where they were created, those Menus and navigation instructions might not be 100% DVD-compatible.

     

    This article goes into a lot more detail, and also has links to help one rip the MPEG-2 AV Stream, even from non-DVD-compatible VOB's: http://forums.adobe.com/message/2298534#2298534

     

    My first guess would be that the problem VOB(s), was created by a DVR deck, or by software, that outputs non-DVD-compatible VOB's.

     

    Good luck, and hope that helps,
