Want to put VOB files ripped from a DVD on iPad Mini with a Windows or Mac? Here you will find the best solution to play VOB videos on iPad Mini.
VOB files are generally from ripped commercial DVD movies DVDs or homemade DVDs. Besides VOB files, you'll find IFO and BUP files inside the VOB folders which contains the features of the DVD movie. If you got an iPad Mini, one of the things you probably want to do is putting VOB movies to iPad Mini for viewing on the move.
In fact, the iPad Mini and other iOS devices can't play VOB movies, and the Mini iPad only supports the following media formats:
Video formats: HD (*.mp4), H.264 (*.mp4), MPEG-4(*.mp4), MOV, M4V, etc.
Audio formats: MP3, M4A, WAV, etc.
For Windows (Windows 8 included) and Mac users, you may be able to get iTunes to convert them (in the Advanced menu, select Create iPad or iPhone version). If not, you'll have to use a 3rd-party software like Pavtube Video Converter to convert VOB to iPad Mini supported video formats. It's not a big hassle for encoding VOB movies for iPad Mini. Below is a simple guide for you.

How to Convert VOB videos to Play on iPad Mini
Step 1: Add VOB files to the Program
Click "Add Video" or "Add Folder" button to load .vob files, or you can simply drag and drop the files to this program directly. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files.
Step 2: Select an output format for iPad Mini
Choose output format for iPad Mini. Click on "Format > iPad", you will find many profiles for iPad. Here "iPad Mini HD Video(*.mp4)" is highly recommended to you. The output videos could fit on the iPad Mini perfectly.
If you like, you can click "Settings" to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. Remember the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss. According to my experience, for watching videos on the iPad Mini, 720p with 2000~2500kbps is just all right. For the new iPad, 720p with 2500~3000kbps is just OK.
Step 3: Convert VOB video to iPad Mini
Click "Convert" button to start converting VOB files to iPad Mini. When the conversion finishes, click "Open" to get the result mp4 videos, add them to iTunes and then sync them to your iPad Mini. Just enjoy the movies!
