Hello, I have some files, (pulled from dvd's as you can probably tell from my previous forum posts) that I'm playing on my Boxee box. However, for some of these files, the Boxee has a hard time understanding how long they are. As does VLC on a Mac. I would like to move them to a different container, but I would rather not transcode them. I'm not sure what tools I should be looking at for this.

Any suggestions?

IIRC, you can use a matroska container for this. Just add all the vob-parts (or cat them together first) into mkvmerge/mmg from mkvtoolnix package - provided the target system can handle the container.
