How to Enable VOB to MKV Play on Plex Media Server

June 28, 2017

"Now I know Plex doesn't support actual ISO or VIDEO_TS files, and I understand the reasoning why, but I have quite a few files that I ripped off DVDs, where the file format is a single .VOB file. These files don't have any of the menu's or anything from the DVDs. It's simply the video. The full movie.

Now, maybe about 6 months ago, I had no problem streaming these files from my desktop server to my various devices (kindle tablet, chromecast, web browser, etc.). They worked fine. Except now, I get an error saying they can't play the video. This is with both my movies that are .VOB files and my tv shows that are .VOB files.

My question is why doesn't this work anymore? Did they previously have support for it that they dropped?"

Best Answer:

Solution 1: Make sure the whole file names were being recognized by Plex. For example, if all of my vob videos are all Sports videos so the names, there were kind of random. To solve it, you can set 'Scanner' as 'Personal Video Files Scanner' and 'Agent' as 'Personal Media'. Plex picks up pretty much any file with that setting.

Cons: I found it’s stuttering on large vob files Plex.

Solution 2: Download Handbrake and use the default setting in it to convert VOB files to MP4 for streaming to Plex.

Cons: Some guys reflect Handbrake is spamware. Just downloaded it and had to do two malware cleans to get rid of all the shit it put on the computer.

Solution 3: In order to stream VOB files via Plex Media Server without problems, the easy option is to convert VOB to Plex compatible video files. Along with some help from third party program like Brorsoft Video Converter Ultimate, it can be done effortlessly.
