    I use Windows 98 and everytime I try to use vobrator it crashes. I can open the application, so I think it will work in Windows 98. But when I select a vob to look at, I get an error message. (it appears that vobrator is working in the background, but I can't view anything) I use DVDDecrypter first, then try to use vobrator to view the vob files.

    How can I fix my problem? Does this have something to do with my display settings? Thanks.

    VOBrator is unstable, and probably even more so with win98.

    I would use DVD2AVI to view the VOB if I were you.

    Do you know where I could find a guide on how to use DVD2AVI?

    Thanks.

    chowder,

    I experienced the same problem, although I'm using XP, however, make sure vobrator is looking at the vob file on your hard drive and not the vob file on your DVD ROM drive. After I changed the source all went well.

    I think the author's site has a guide, but it's pretty straight forward to use. If you only want to view the vob, load it up and select the preview menu, or move the slide bar.
