VOB stands for DVD Video Object. It is basically one of the core files found on DVD-Video discs and contains the actual movie data. A VOB file contains several streams – Video, Audio (normally AC3 format), Subtitles, and Menu contents all multiplexed together in one container format.
Basically VOB file is just a basic MPEG-2 system stream — meaning that it is a file that contains multiplexed MPEG-2 video stream, audio streams (normally AC3 and DTS formats) and subtitle streams.
To view stand-alone VOB files, you need to have a DVD player software that supports VOB playback. iPad has big crystal clear screen which is excellent for DVD movies, unfortunately you can’t play VOB on iPad directly as VOB is not one of the supported media type by iPad or iPad 2.
