VOB on DVD may be complemented with information libraries in the form of .IFO and .BUP files.

File generated by the game program Live for Speed (LFS). In this version, VOB file contains 3D car models, their characteristic parameters, and descriptive text information. In such a way, the user can change this data by editing the VOB file. It is noteworthy that VOB file contains information only about the half of the race car. During game simulation, its second part is added in a mirror manner.

Format used to create 3D models in Vue Objects File. This program is a three-dimensional design environment, which allows to generate different elements of the landscape. In this case, VOB file stores data in the form of models of mountains and hills, lakes and rivers, trees and shrubs. There are versions of this program both for professional users and amateurs.
