Is it possible to play DVD videos on Galaxy Tab 10.1?
I have some .vob files copied from DVDs. Iím wondering if I can put these DVD videos to Galaxy Tab 10.1 for watching. Does 2nd gen Samsung Galaxy tab play .vob format?

.VOB files are way too big of files so it's not really practical. I suggest converting your videos then transfer them over.
DVD Catalyst is probably the best software you can get. It's only $9.95 compared to other software that are way over priced IMO.
If you do decide to get it, use the "Xoom" profile. DVD Catalyst is also a supporting vendor in many of our forums and is around to give help.

If you convert your DVDs to MP4 format, you can reduce the filesize at least by 4 without noticeable quality-loss, and your movie ends up in one file.
I agree with you that the vob files will occupy much space of the Tab's hard disk if users play vob movies with RockPlayer directly, but i don't think there will be "without noticeable quality-loss" after compressing a vob file to a mp4 file whose size is a quarter of the original, that's impossible !
