    should be a help file for program to show you options for recording
    as in frame rate (pal or ntsc)
    mpeg 1 or 2
    avi as a mpeg4
    other types svcd ,vcd all use mpeg or mpg as extension
    res size options can very

    not sure what you mean by extension gone
    if you make it something other than dvd compliant it will no have the vob extension
    you want it avi the extension will change to foo.avi??

    thats because the container is VOB the file has been encoded mpeg
    this will not always hold true if you don't have the codec installed on machine will not read it correctly.
    vob is for the older stand alone dvd players to read
    this allows the addition of graphic menu's and buttons (controls)
