Listing Data Streams in Movie VOB Files
This section provides a tutorial on how to list audio and video streams in a movie VOB file with 'vStrip'.
Other than ripping off media VOB files from a DVD, vStrip can also be used to manipulate VOB files stored on hard disk. The most commonly used function is to list all audio and video streams that are available in a VOB file.
1. Download a large sample VOB file from the Internet and saved it to C:\temp\dolby-bestsound.vob.
2. Test the VOB file with MPlayer. It plays nicely.
3. Check the size of the VOB file. It has 66,129,920 bytes.
4. Run vStrip command without any command options to list all audio and video stream in this VOB file:
C:\>cd \temp C:\temp>\local\vStrip\vStrip dolby-bestsound.vob vStrip - version 0.8f_css, by [maven] (firstname.lastname@example.org), CSS-code by R0TfL. Scanning for stream id's, press control-c to quit... Saving 0xBF = Private 2 [@LBA 0] Saving 0xE0 = Video 0 [PTS 0:00:00.220 @LBA 1] Width = 704 Height = 576 Aspect-ratio =  4:3 display Frame-rate =  25 fps Saving 0xBD = Private 1, sub 0x80 [PTS 0:00:00.220 @LBA 62] Saving 0xBE = Padding [@LBA 198] Summary: MPEG Packs = 32290 System headers = 110 Private 1 packets = 1457, total bytes = 2938178 Sub 0x80 packets = 1457, total bytes = 2938178 Padding packets = 6353, total bytes = 12726315 Private 2 packets = 220, total bytes = 219780 Video 0 packets = 24481, total bytes = 49188154
