Convert VOB and MPEG2 files? [WIP]

Videowrap looks great and the demo has worked perfectly for me so far. The Flash conversion from my QT files was excellent quality.
One thing though, are there plans to enable the conversion of VOB files? 67 people are being made redundant at work and everyone is frantically trying to put together showreels using clips gathered from various DVD's featuring our work. It's been a nightmare for most trying to convert the VOB files into a useable format.
At first I thought VideoWrap could be the answer.
Also, is it possible to mark an 'in' and 'out' point on the selected video as you don't always want to convert the whole video? Maybe I've missed that so far.
I'm definitely buying anyway as it's going to prove very useful.

Not sure about directly in VideoWrap! but I know that Handbrake can do that (all platforms and free too!)http://handbrake.m0k.org/
I hope people find this useful!

Just to get you out of your VOB hell - use something like DVDDecrypter to get the VOB's onto your harddrive, then rename them as '.mp2' or '.mpg' (instead of '.vob'), and you may find more software willing to play them (assuming you have a DVD player installed on the computer) and allowing you to edit them.
Not guaranteed to work, but it's a good cheat when it works

I use WinAVI Video Converter. It changes most any video format to and from. Almost every platform convered. Even has configuration settings to set the video resolution and what not to your own standard. Cost only $29.95 USD. It works great for me. http://www.free-codecs.com/download/WinAVI_Video_Converter.htm
Sometimes can be slow on really large files, but that's how most all software is with large files.
Just a suggestion.

I really appreciate the suggestions guys.
I get an error message every time I try and run Handbrake but I will test out the others.
Thanks for the help

But it would be nice to have all the facilities in one place - eg. VideoWrap.

We will start looking at VOB and mpeg2 support.

Thanks Schwar that would be extremely useful and, like SketchWork said, convenient to have everything (as much as is possible) in one program.
