It is also possible to convert MP4 to VOB online, however disadvantages are obvious. Let's just name a few. Many online MP4 to VOB converters like Convert.Files provide one-by-one conversion only. You can't convert multiple files in batch and let alone merging them into one. Different from desktop converting software, it requires network connection to upload file and download output. Despite all that, you still love online converter because it is free? Check it carefully again, and you probably find maximum upload file size maybe 50MB and a sign up option for expensive purchases.

If you're confused about NTSC and PAL, simply check "what is NTSC, what is PAL, and NTSC vs PAL".
Step 3 (optional). Edit videos.
If you need to join multiple videos into one, tick "Merge" under the preview window. Move mouse over a file, you'll see arrow keys which are designed to customize the video sequence.
