Isn't there a VIDEO_TS folder on the disc?

Yes, I have no problems doing one at a time, just wondering if all the VOB files can can be converted into a single file so I do not have to play each one seperstely.

I can't seem to find how to select more than one?

Thank you,

Pick the VIDEO_TS folder and let HB parse the disk structure.

He is saying open the folder, not the files.

ok..I;m a little dense...maybe a lot.

This is what I'm doing.
1. I open handbrake. There is a square that says drop files or folder there.
2. I place all the VOB files (say 5) in there. Those are the 5 I want combined into one mp4 file
3. I click start encode.
4. It finishes, but the single mp4 file does not contain all 5 VOBs i dropped in the folder.

Thank you

(2) (a) choose "open folder" and open the VIDEO_TS folder or (b) drop the VIDEO_TS folder, not the files.
