I have tried magic dvd ripper in the past, but was not satisfied with the quality of the output. After a loooooong search and some experimenting, IMHO, AutoGuardianKnot (search AutoGK) is the best software around. Since it is extremely elaborate and allows you to control many aspects of the encoded and compressed output (Resolution, Frame rate, Size of output etc. just to begin with), you might want to read the following tutorial by Elliot Back(http://elliottback.com/wp/archives/2005/12/26/how-to-rip-a-dvd-a-tutorial/)
Also you shall need to install DVD Decrypter (to decode the DVD contents to .vob files) and AutoGK (to encode and compress the .vob files into .avi files). These softwares are available under the GNU license for free.
I downloaded and used Vob 2 MPG, but a funny thing happened when I tried to import the Mpg into Windows Movie Maker... I got sound, but no video. But I see sound and video if I view it in MediaPlayer.
Anyone know what causing Windows Movie maker to not see the video part of the converted mpg file when using VOB2MPG? Can anyone else repro this?
Thanks for the replies.
i need to know how to convert the vob files of an dvd into a high quality avi or mpg for the purposes of editing those in any video editing software avaible.

dont rename VOB to MPG do it properly, you may get unpredictable results with some VOB’s
Could always rip the files into a highly compressed .h264 and .aac file using an .mkv container.
Though, most prefer to avoid possible audio issues by using a copy of the original audio source (.ac3).
I usually use Fairuse wizard 2.9 for ripping a DVD into the mentioned formats with the mentioned container.
It usually gives me a 95% exact picture if not 100%. Only time I’ve seen flaws are when the source has been modified (I took a DVD9 and made it a DVD5 as I only had DVD5 discs)

Also for those users who want an alternative:
This is handbrake, it’s for linux, Mac, and Windows.
This VOB to MOV Mac Converter is worth using.
