How Do I Easily Convert VOB to Xvid/DivX

by Brian Fisher

Xvid and DivX are not just formats, but more of programs that compress videos. They are very similar in various aspects and so may seem to compete with each other. If working with VOB files is not going great, you can always shift. With the right software, you can easily convert VOB to Xvid. You can also VOB to DivX if you wish. In this article, you will discover that UniConverter is the best program for such conversion. It is powerful and thus handles such milestones. There is also more information about Xvid/DivX files to satisfy your curiosity.

Part 1: The Process of Using Xvid/DivX Files

If you are using Xvid files, you should know that they use the Xvid codec. Xvid is nothing like MP4, WMV or other formats. However, it is a program that compresses and decompresses video to the compression standard known as MPEG-4 ASP. This compression mostly takes place to save on disc space or increase the speed of file transfer. If you compress a full-length DVD movie, the DVD quality will still be retained and the file will fit in a CD due to the compression supported in Xvid content.

The above also takes place with DivX, which stands for digital Video express. DivX files utilize the DivX codecs. If you compress a video using this program, the compressed video will be based on MPEG-4 technology. The DivX and Xvid codecs may differ at some point and the former files could be more widely supported. However, modern DVD players support both files, especially the video players displaying the DivX logo.

If you use both DivX and Xvid to compress videos, they may appear as competing compression formats. While DivX may be more popular, Xvid may seem to offer quality improvements after compression. However, if you take a closer look, you will find no difference. Both compress to small sizes and so you can choose the smallest if you wish.

Part 3: More information about Xvid/DivX File

At times, you may come across various types of files with the .XVID file extension. You should note that multiple file containers do carry the Xvid video content and so an AVI file may be named video.xvid.avi, for instance. So, it is possible to convert VOB to Xvid AVI.

The Xvid/DivX Files are played using Blu-Ray and DVD players. You need to be aware of the possibility of incompatibility, whereby Xvid videos may not be compatible with the majorities of the DivX Players. This happens when Xvid videos are encoded with MPEG-4 features that are advanced, like multiple B-frames or MPEG quantization. Nevertheless, any software on a PC that can decode an encoded video with MPEG-4 ASP is capable of playing Xvid files. Such programs are popular and may include Windows Media Player, VLC media player, DivX Plus Player, MPlayer and Elmedia Player.

In conclusion, it is easy to convert various formats to Xvid/DivX, if you know the best program to use. Xvid/DivX may seem like complicated files. However, they are quite easy to understand once you explore them. UniConverter is powerful and thus can convert VOB to Xvid or DivX. Many may choose the latter since it is more popular.
