The VOB files are anamorphic 16:9. That means the 16:9 video is squashed into a 4:3 frame. When the video is played back the, the video is then stretched out so that it plays correctly on a 16:9 device (the IFO file controls this behaivour). I think you'll find that all DVD VOB files will be flagged as 4:3 as a DVD's resolution is 720x480 (NTSC) or 720 x 576 (PAL).

Sorry, I don't know what that means.

The link I provided has 2 files for download:


VTS_01_0.BUP is actually a copy of the VTS_01_0.IFO file. Both files should be the same (except for the file name).

A BUP file (Back UP) is a backup of the IFO file on a DVD, which contains the information about the organization of tracks, menus, chapters, subtitles on the disc. BUP files are used in the event that the corresponding IFO file is unreadable, perhaps due to a scratch on the surface of the disc.
