not following the vob file type won't play on the PS3. All of the movies I have on my PS3 HDD and 1TB drive are the direct output of DVD shrink with no extension change. I simply move them via thumb drive or directly to the ext HDD. for tougher movies, like some Disney films, I use anydvd and clone dvd then shrink to compress and rip.
Right now it takes about 20 minutes from dvd case to HDD per movie using shrink. I rip only the main movie, remove end credits to save space, unchecked audio formats I don't use, then apply compression as needed. The only problem I have is when streaming with WMP the PS3 isn't seeing my movies now. not sure hwy but I don't stream I transfer directly to the HDD.
Handbrake is a great program but takes to long to process a movie. I guess I'm a quantity of quality guy. The upscaling of the PS3 more than compensates for some compression in my eyes.
Sorry to derail the topic I just wasn't following the PS3 won't natively play vob file statement.
