Another commonly used function of vStrip is to split a large VOB file into smaller VOB files to two command options:

4. Split the sample VOB file into multiple VOB files in size of 10MB:

C:\temp>\local\vStrip\vStrip dolby-bestsound.vob -$10 -odolby.vob
vStrip - version 0.8f_css, by [maven] (maven@maven.de), CSS-code 
   by R0TfL.

Splitting output-file(s) after 10 megabytes (1024KB chunks).
Saving 0xBF = Private 2 [@LBA 0]
Saving 0xE0 = Video 0 [PTS 0:00:00.220 @LBA 1]
  Width = 704
  Height = 576
  Aspect-ratio = [2] 4:3 display
  Frame-rate = [3] 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

2. Check the output files confirm that the large VOB file has been broken into smaller VOB files:

C:\temp>dir dolby*.*
        66,129,920 dolby-bestsound.vob
        10,485,760 dolby_1.vob
        10,485,760 dolby_2.vob
        10,485,760 dolby_3.vob
        10,485,760 dolby_4.vob
        10,485,760 dolby_5.vob
        10,485,760 dolby_6.vob
         3,215,360 dolby_7.vob
     8 File(s)    132,259,840 bytes

3. Test the second VOB file, dolby_2.vob with MPlayer. It plays nicely.
