Join .vob files

Joining .vob files is as easy as typing a single command. This is how you do it:

Say you have 2 files, file1.vob and file2.vob. To join these two files and create a new file, say file3.vob, you need to type the following in the Terminal:

cat file1.vob file2.vob > file3.vob
And thats pretty much it. Mind you this process can take some time depending upon the size of your files but usually it shouldnt take more than 10 mins for standard DVDs.

  1. Hi,

    I'm facing a problem in ubuntu 8.04. I had amarok & audacity installed, since both were giving problems I ended up uninstalling both. Audacity were asking me to set the correct playback,tried with all the possible ALSA settings and it didn't work. So I uninstalled All alsa packages through Synaptic and restarted my machine. Now ubuntu boots with command prompt, GUI is not booting up. How can this b resolved? Need ur help

  2. well its very difficult to come up with a solution without having much info on the problem.
    If you can reach the command prompt (terminal), you can try using the following commands (one after the other, dont break the sequence):

    sudo apt-get --purge remove linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils

    sudo apt-get install linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils

    sudo apt-get install gdm ubuntu-desktop

    Then reset/restart your PC, see if the problem is resolved.

    I would however suggest formatting the drive and installing the latest version 10.04.

    Also, here a bit of a suggestion. Try not to use too many ALSA driven apps henceforth. Ubuntu has recently shifted to Pulse audio and that can sometimes lead to problems in case of ALSA driven audio players if codecs are installed properly.
