How to make VOB files work in Oculus Cinema
Step 1. Add VOB files
Download and install EaseFab Video Converter Ultimate on your computer. Run it and click Add Video to import the VOB files to be converted from local hard drive or other portable devices. You can also drag the files to this program directly.
Step 2. Select output format
Click "Profile" drop-down list option on the lower left-hand side of the interface, this opens a wide range of file formats. The video formats available are MP4, MKV, etc. In this case, we shall select "MP4 Video" from the "Common Video" choices only for description purposes.
Tips: Click the "Settings" button and customize proper video/audio parameters if necessary. Video size, bitrate and fame rate are flexible and can be adjusted as you like. We recommend using 1280x720 HD resolution to encode your videos. Higher resolutions will not provide any better quality, meaning you'll waste space and processing power. We also recommend using a higher bit rate than a typical web stream at that resolution, as the pixels in your video will be magnified on the phone's screen. The optimal bit rate is content dependent, and many videos can get by with less, but 5 Mb/s should give good quality.
Step 3. Start transcoding VOB to Oculus Cinema
Click the Convert button at the bottom-right corner of the interface to convert the VOB file to Oculus Cinema compatible MP4 files. This Video Converter will finish the conversion in just a few minutes. After the conversion, click "Open Folder" icon to locate the converted video files.
