Well, I've not done it for a while, but I've been able to just upload
the VOB files to YouTube, and it handled them by itself.  However,
YouTube has a nasty habit of badly stuffing up sound to picture

Giving it a different file format to deal with my change that issue,
though.  And, presuming you have a long video, it would sidestep the
issue of DVD video being spread across more than one VOB file.

George Orwell's '1984' was supposed to be a warning against tyranny, not
a set of instructions for supposedly democratic governments.
