    Videora sucks but gets the job done, Xilisoft Video Converter is $$$ but is great.

    Isn't VOB just plain MPEG+extra data?

    Try Handbrake. Its gives a better quality than Videora with the correct settings.

    Yes, but changing the extension might not do it for some media players, and besides, the file-size is huge. It would make sense to convert to h.264 with an MP4 extension or something.

    Well both are just file containers. MKV is better in my opinion, it can hold more formats/data types, and is also an open standard format, unlike mp4.

    In Windows Explorer, go to Tools - Folder Options - "View" tab - uncheck "Hide extensions for known filetypes" and hit Okay. Then you can see and change the extension as you see fit.

    If you're using Vista and don't see a "Tools" menu, click on Organize - Layout - Menu Bar.
