Summary: This article will share an effective way to walk you through streaming and playing VOB files via Plex.

Q: "I have collected lots of VOB files from Ripper DVD discs, when I try to import VOB files to Plex and want to stream them to TV for playback, It says error. Any solution?"

VOB (Video Object) is the container format in DVD movies. It contains digital video, digital audio, subtitles, DVD menus and navigation contents multiplexed together into a stream form. Files in VOB format may be encrypted. In order to stream and play VOB files via Plex, you'd better convert VOB files to Plex supported video format first.

From Plex official website, Plex supports video formats as below:

  • MP4 container. Video Encoding: H.264, H.265 (HEVC), mpeg4, VC-1. Audio Encoding: AAC, AC3, EAC3, MP3.
  • MKV container. Video Encoding: H.264, H.265 (HEVC), mpeg4, VC-1. Audio Encoding: AAC, AC3, ALAC, FLAC, MP3.

Here, I suggest you convert VOB files to Plex compatible e.g. H.264 MP4 for easier streaming and playback with a third party video converter. Brorsoft Video Convert Ultimate / ( iMedia Converter for Mac ) is the most used program that help you convert any VOB file to Plex compatible H.264 MP4 format in fast speed and flawless quality.
