How to Convert and Import VOB Files to iTunes on Mac

by Brian Fisher

So what is VOB? VOB is a file container format used to store MPEG-2 video and audio data. The available data might include menus, buttons, subtitles, audio, and the VOB itself. However, situations might require you to convert VOB to iTunes supported format. This will allow seamless synching with other devices such as iPhone XS, iPhone XR, iPhone 8, iPad Air, etc. But the bad news is that iTunes is very selective on the type of formats imported into it.

In that case, you’ll need to convert your files into MP4, M4V or MOV, which are iTunes-compatible formats. So if you’re still scratching your head trying to figure out how to convert VOB files to iTunes, this detailed article is here to help out.

Step 2: Select iTunes Supported Format

As I’ve mentioned before, iTunes is very discriminative on the type of file formats you can import. So in this case, you’ll select MP4, M4V depending on your preference. You can do this by clicking on the Convert all files to: drop-down menu and then choose your preferred output format from the Video section. Another alternative is to click on the Devices tab and then select your target device – be it Apple TV, iPad, or iPhone.

Part 2: Top 2 Free VOB to iTunes Converters

Sometimes your favorite video might refuse to play on your DVR, PSP, desktop, or iPod due to file compatibility issues. So with many file formats available today, it’s apparent that you’ll need a video/audio converter tool. In Part 2 of this post, I’ll be showing you’re the top 2 VOB to iTunes converter free programs and how to convert your VOB files to iTunes supported format using these tools.

1. VLC

The VLC media player is undeniably a household name when it comes to playing audio and video files of any format. But did you know that this powerful tool also doubles up as a video converter? Well, you can use VLC to convert VOB to iTunes and any other file format you can think of. Without wasting time, here’s how you can convert your VOB files to iTunes supported format such as MP4:

Step 1: Launch VLC media player and then click on the Media tab at the top-left corner of the home window. From there, click Convert/Save and an Open Media window will pop-up.

Step 2: On the pop-up window, click on the + Add… sign to browse and import your VOB files. Once you’ve successfully imported your VOB files, click Convert/Save and a Convert window will pop-up.

Step 3: On the Convert pop-up window, click on the Profile dropdown menu and then select Video for iPod HD, iPhone, or PSP. Now select the file destination folder from the Browse button and then click Start to begin the process.


2. Zamzar

If you don’t have lots of files to convert, I suggest going for a powerful online tool such as Zamzar. All you need is a web browser and an internet connection. However, it’s worth noting that most of these programs are quite slow compared to desktop converters. Also, there’s a limit on the file size you can upload – in this case 100MB. But again, what do you expect from something free? The good news is, however, that you can increase the conversion speed and maximum file size by purchasing the provided premium services.

Step 1: Visit Zamzar and then drag and drop your VOB files to the home window. Alternatively, you can click on the Add Files button to import your files from DVD, computer, smartphone, etc.

Step 2: Select your preferred output format by clicking on the Choose Format drop-down menu. Now select iPad, iPhone, MOV, or MP4 from the provided list. Finally, click on the Convert Now button to begin the process. You can also add in an email address where your converted files will be sent.
