My son picked up an inexpensive Mini-DVD recording video camera, and liked the DVD-VR format for it's flexibility, but didn't like that it couldn't be used directly in a video editor. After some searching, I came across this:
DVD-VR ripper for Linuxhttp://www.pixelbeat...org/programs/dvd-vr/
dvd-vr is a utility to identify and optionally copy recordings from a DVD-VR format disc, which can be created by devices like DVD recorders and camcorders
Basically, it can rip the VR-format file into individual .vob files, which can then be imported into most video editing programs not written by Microsoft
, but it needs to be compiled in Cygwin to run on Windows, and then it's a command-line program.
My son being a fan of the Windows 7 that came on his laptop, I dusted off my XP partition, brushed up on my Autohotkey skills and came up with dvdvrGUI.

Instructions I wrote for installing Cygwin, compiling and running dvd-vr and dvdvrGUI can be found here:http://comments.pixe...d-vr/#comment-302522
Still working on a version for Linux, possibly written with Yad
