What is VOB?
VOB (Video Object) is the file container format for DVDs. They can contain digital video and audio, subtitles, menus and navigation content. Both VOB and MP4 videos can be compressed to small sizes, but MP4 videos retain more of their video quality. Since VOB files are derived from DVD, you can’t play them on mobile either.
The best player to use for VOB files is VLC. You can easily convert VOB files to MP4 files to make them playable on a wider range of devices and players.
What is MP4?
MP4 is one of the most widely used video file formats. You can upload MP4 videos to popular social media sites like YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter and Facebook. Media players like Windows Media Player, VLC, QuickTime, iPhone, iPad and Android are also compatible with MP4 video files.
MP4s are popular not only for their compatibility with most devices but also for their ability to hold high-resolution videos without taking up much storage space. MP4 stands for MPEG4, and an MP4 file can contain video, audio, images and subtitles.
