Video Object (VOB) is a container file format for DVD movie files. Commercial DVD files that contain copyrighted content almost always have copy protection, such as Content Scramble System (CSS) encryption licensed and maintained by the DVD Copy Control Association (DVD CCA).
By default, VOB files open in Cyberlink PowerDVD, which is a player frequently installed on consumer electronics, such as laptops, desktops, and DVD drives. Since DVD files are usually encrypted, players must have CSS decryption software to enable playback.
An unencrypted VOB file will usually open on any player that allows playback of generic MPEG-2 files. VLC media player can also play unencrypted VOB files, and it works across many platforms, including mobile.

Matroska (MKV) is a free, open-source, container standard that can hold an unlimited amount of audiovisual and multimedia files in a single file format. Since it is open source, a user can customize it with open-source software. The name derives from “Matryoshka” dolls, which is a famous type of Russian handicraft that consists of a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size nested one inside another.
The best way to open an MKV file is to use VLC media player. This media player is compatible with all operating systems and platforms. This is important because MKV is not an industry standard, which means that other media players might not support it.
Additionally, MKV does not use codecs to compress file size, which means the file can be quite large. Therefore, another option for opening an MKV file is to download the appropriate codecs that are compatible with the selected media player. To accomplish this, download the Combined Community Codec Pack (CCCP) from a trusted site, such as Ninite.
