Hi, I'm hoping you can help me with several questions I have:

When I download a DVD torrent, it's made of multiple files such as VOB, BUP, IFO, etc.
How do I join all these files into a single DVD file?
How can also convert one of these VOB files into another file format such as AVI?

If I want to create a smaller video file from a scene of a larger movie, what would be the best program to do so?

What would be the best program to use if I want to create a single video file consisting of a compilation of several scenes or video files?
This could also be used to join multiple video files into a single one.

What's the best program to convert video files from one format to another (i.e. mp4 to avi, etc)?

Thanks if you're able to help.

There is no need to join anything. Those files are exactly the files like they are stored on a DVD in the folder called VIDEO_TS. If you burn them in a folder called VIDEO_TS as data to a DVD-R, the disk should play like a DVD on your computer or a stand alone DVD player, means with menu navigation, chapter and language selection etc ...

Video player on computer will usually play those DVD Data files like a DVD, if you select the VIDEO_TS.IFO file to play (that is the DVD main index file).

Of course it is possible to create a DVD ISO image from these files, e.g. with ImgBURN, but that has no advantage IMHO.

Most good free video encoders / converters stopped supporting the old .avi container.

To convert DVD to .mp4 (m4v) or .mkv, I'd recommend Handbrake. You can open directly the folder with the .VOB, .IFO and .BUP files with it.

I am not sure here what to recommend.

To pack something into .mp4 or .mkv digital container format , I'd recommend Avidemux, using the stream copy function. This that repacks only and doesn't decode / re-encode, it is fast and without losses.

To encode (which means losses in quality) into .mp4 or .mkv digital container format, I'd recommend Handbrake again.

There is as well Super from eRightsoft, allowing to convert nearly anything to anything including stream copy functions. It is basically a GUI for ffmpeg. For some reasons I don't like it.

If you really want to have .avi, VirtualDub(Mod) might be an option, but it's user interface is horrible and you need to know what you do (e.g. calculate bit rates manually).

The site http://www.videohelp.com/tools is a true treasure box regarding any video treating tools.
