Hi Erik,

I did try this initially, but Windows Movie Maker does not natively open 
.VOB files (says they're unsupported). I have since learned that .VOB is 
nearly the same as mpeg2 and it's actually possible to change the 
extension to mpg and it WMM will open them. Ah, if I'd known then what I 
know now....

Still VideoLan is worth having

Epimethean greetings
