    I've been backing up my DVD collection with DVDFab, and then joining the resulting .vob files with JoinVobFiles to make it into one long .vob files. I was wondering if there is a program to convert .vob to .avi without any loss of quality? It would also be a big help if it has the options to queue jobs, so I could just set it to convert all my movies one after another and walk away.

    Also, is there a way to cut out the middle man and just rip the dvds into a single .avi without losing any quality?

    Recompressing the source will cause a loss of quality.
    You can queue up video for conversion using AutoGK.

    Rip the movie to a folder using DVDFab.
    Run AutoGK.
    Select the .IFO file that relates to the main Title (a typical selection would be VTS_01_0.IFO, if VTS_01 was the main title)
    Choose an output size (either a custom size which requires two passes and takes longer) or a quality percentage (you don't control the final size but is one pass).
    Add it to the queue and select the next title.

    I don't think you can put the DVD video into an AVI container (remux it rather than convert it), but you can remux it into an MKV file with MakeMKV. Of if you already ripped the DVDs and joined the vob files, MKVMergeGUI will resave them, as MKVs.

    Do you particularly need to use AVI?

    I disagree with you, hello_hello. There are bunch of free software to convert VOB to AVI. Just search it on this website. Regards, G
