    I have used Slysoft software to download movies I own to my hardrive. They are in a .vob file form. Does anyone know how to convert that file to a file the XOOM will play? Is there a website one can go to that discusses movies and how to convert files from one format to another?

    Handbrake is an excellent freebie. Runs on most platforms. The default settings are pretty good unless you want to get into secondary languages or sub-titles.

    HandBrake maximumpc.com has some good guides for handbrake as well.

    Dvd catalyst should work as well I know it rips my dvd's with no problems. It also has a built in Xoom setting.

    Get Adobe 10.2 Flash on March 18 for Xoom , then you can go to Amazon Prime instant movies(2800 so far) for free 30 trial, 1 year free if student!

    i tried two software to convert movies for playing on Xoom. one is handbrake, it is free, but it cost me a lot of time to set the parameters. the other software is the professional tool called Fox Real video converter, it give xoom a independent profile and can convert all video formats to xoom. it operate simple but it a shareware.

    DVD Catalyst for $9.99. Doesn't get any easier or any better. There is a xoom profile already set up.

    In case you don't know already, you can rename any *.vob to *.mpg because thats what the file actually is...

    I checked out the DVD catalyst it stated there was a Xoom specific setting, so i downloaded it. it does not convert itunes formated movies however so it was a waste of time and money. they are not specific about that though on their site.

    Actually it is listed in numerous locations on the tools4movies website, which is actually quite unique, since all conversion tools specify what IS supported and don't mention anything on what is NOT supported.

    But, a quote from the main DVD Catalyst description on the DVD Catalyst front page (in the "read more" portion where it specifies the features):

    Or, if you look at the "how to guides" I have listed on my website, for example the one that I actually have listed in the "DVD Catalyst" section on this forum: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/dvd-catalyst/23340-full-screen-dvd-video-xoom-quick-easy.html

    I'm not sure how more specific I can be on my website on this.
