Is it possible to play VOB videos on Galaxy Tab 2 10.1?
I have some .vob files copied from DVDs. I'm wondering if I can put these DVD videos to my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for watching. Does 2nd gen Samsung Galaxy tab play .vob format?
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1's beautiful 1,280x800-pixel screen is great for watching movies. But the Jelly Bean tablet only supports WMV9, WMV7, WMV8, H.264, MPEG4, Xvid, DivX, H.263, and VP8 video codecs. As you see, the .vob isn't in one the the supported formats. If you wanna to play .vob files on your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, the best solution is to encode/re-encode .vob to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 supported video formats like MP4 first. Here's is how:
Step 1: Download and Install Pavtube Video Converter. The tool is on sale (Buy one get one free) during Pavtube's Thanksgiving Special (Offer expire on Dec. 10, 2012).
The program can be used as an all-in-one video conversion app for Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. Besides vob, it can also help you convert almost various formats of 1080p/720p HD videos including MKV, AVI, MPG, MOV, TiVo, MTS to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. Meanwhile the quality of the converted videos is as decent as possible as original. The equivalent Mac version is the Galaxy Tab 2 Video Converter Mac, which can convert .vob and more videos to Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 on Mac OS X (Include Lion and Mountain Lion).
Step 2: Select your movie. Click "Add Video" or "Add from folder" to import your source materials in .vob format. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files.
Step 3: Choose the output format. Click "Format" bar and move mouse to "Samsung" column, you can easily find the video preset of "Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1(*.mp4)". The output videos could fit on Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 perfectly.
Step 4: If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. According to my experience, the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa. For watching videos on Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, 720p with 2000kbps is just all right.
Step 5: After above settings, you can start the DVD .VOB to Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 MP4 conversion. Once the process completes, locate the files and transfer and copy the converted MP4 videos to your Galaxy tab. As you see, now you can effortlessly watch DVD .vob videos on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.
