"vob" is just a container format, a variation of mpeg2-ps designed specifically for dvd video. The media inside is nearly always mpeg2 video and either ac3, mp2, or pcm audio.

Assuming the vob has already been ripped from a dvd (or is otherwise stand-alone), you should be able to simply convert it directly to another format using any one of a number of media converters. Call up google or the LQ search and look for "Linux video convert" or similar keywords.
