If you got some VOB files somehow, chances are they are copied or extracted from DVDs. The VOB file extension stands for DVD Video Object files, which are basically DVD movie files. A *.vob file is a container file that contains digital video, digital audio, subtitles, DVD menus, and navigation contents together into a stream form. You are most likely to find VOB files under the VIDEO_TS folder. Some other files that you will also see in the folder are IFO and BUP.
Although many PC-based players can play VOB files (provided they are unencrypted), most mobile devices don't support this format. At this point, if you want to widen the usage of VOB videos, like playing VOB files on iPhone, iPad, or Android on the go, you first have to convert it to an appropriate format.
