MP4 is a digital multimedia container which stores audio and video. MP4s can also store subtitles and still images within the container. The MPEG-4 Part 14 (known as MP4 also) format was developed in 2001 and based on the QuickTime File Format. MP4 files can contain metadata, and also supports Extensible Metadata Platform (XMP). Generally this is the most univerally supported format, and is perfect for uploading video to Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, YouTube, and pretty much any HTML5 website.


VOB or Video Object is a video container format contained within DVD-Video media. Video Object or VOB is a MPEG-2 program stream format. It contains the actual Video, Audio, Subtitle, and Menu contents in stream form. If the VOB filename extension is changed from .vob to an MPEG-2 type file extension such as .mpg or .mpeg, the file is still readable and continues to hold all information, although most MPEG-2-capable players don't support subtitle tracks.

How you can convert mp4 to vob

  1. 1. Upload Your mp4 file

    Simply drag and drop your mp4 file within the upload zone above. Alternatively you can click the big blue button that says "Upload File". If your file is not of mp4 type, then the system will automatically detect the file for you.

  2. 2. Select vob as your conversion format

    Once your mp4 video is uploaded (it doesn't have to be mp4, we will automatically detect the format if it's different), you will see a progress bar.

    In a matter of seconds (typically) you will see the video, with it's metadata on the right. At the top of the metadata you will see a format dropdown button. The default will be vob, but you can change the format on the fly, once you're happy, you can click the convert button.

  3. 2. Download your vob file

    Give it a few minutes to convert your mp4 file into vob (or which ever formats you have defined). Depending on your settings and the output format it could take a moment.

    Be patient on this step, you can enter your email if you would like to get a downloadable link when it is ready. This is nice if you need to leave and get a link while on the go. When it's done you will have a free vob file that you can download with no strings attached. If you would like to edit the video, then Motionbox has an awesome video editor for you.
