Keep in mind that the VOB files are just plain MPEG2 files with a
different extension. The example I gave used the "chapter" argument,
-c file.mpeg. That makes each VOB a chapter that you can easily skip
too. You can also had times as well like so:

-c 0;11:00 file.mpeg

This makes a chapter at the beginning of the MPG file and another one
at the 11 minute mark.
