  • vStrip - DVD VOB Utility
    vStrip is a small utility for stripping (=removing) unwanted streams (=data packets) out of VOBs (Video Objects) without having to reweave the VOB, or extracting the data contained inside a single stream. It also parses IFO-files so it (hopefully) doesn't get confused by multi-angle VOBs. By Daniel Vollmer [maven].
