I'd like to merge the VOB's of a DVD into a single VOB file.

What command-line tool is recommended under Linux?

Assuming you only care about the vobs and not anything else on the dvd, you can simply cat them together:

cat *.vob > big.vob

will work just fine.

Didn't know this worked, wow. If you're impatient and want to see progress, you could use: cat *.VOB | pv | dd of=big.vob – SickAnimations Nov 24 '13 at 13:59
