I have various DVD rips which have timecode errors.
I used to be able to easily repair using MPEG streamclip.
In a related thread, I've established this app is dead for Mac OS now.
There is no method of installing manually the MPEG 2 component which will bring it back to life.
FCPX *STILL* cannot read VOB files.
MacX DVD Ripper shits itself and crashes every time I try to open VOB's with timecode errors. This app is almost completely useless. Ugly UI, often crashes for no reason, clunky as shit.
Trying to re-burn or create new images using Toast simply creates videos with completely out of synch audio with missing chunks.
MPEG Streamclip used to have no problem with this, so logically there will / must be another way / app to fix timecode breaks.
MPEGStreamClip will no longer rip DVDs using Sierra on my cylindrical MacPro.
The software has not been touched by the developer in 5 years.
Released 2012-08-20 (20/08/2012) - Size 1.6 MB
compatible with Mountain Lion
fixed compatibility with YouTube
This beta version is compatible with YouTube.
This beta version has not been fully tested.
You need to manually put the QuickTimeMPEG2.component into Macintosh HD--->Library--->QuickTime for quickTime 7 or MPEGStreamclip to open mpeg2.
For me it doesn't play smoothly in QT7 and MPEGStreamclip is having display issue but it does work.
Ok, I'm going to presume that the users who claim MPEG Streamclip works under Sierra are NOT using it for trimming or fixing timecode errors in VOB files. If I'm wrong, then I'm all ears for how they got it working for this purpose.
Let's get back to my original question:
*****How do I fix timecode breaks*******?
Is there seriously NO other way of doing it than somehow installing a virtual previous OS to run MPEG Streamclip?
Handbrake does NOT like VOB files with timecode errors.
FCPX can't read VOB files.
MPEG Streamclip evidently, at least in MY experience, *no longer will handle VOB files under Sierra*.
I just can't believe that it's impossible.

Maybe we're not bothering to read the OP. Maybe our information is incorrect. Perhaps we don't really know what we're talking about. Or some of us actually CAN use MPEGSC on Sierra.

Just curious as to what the end goal is here.
It's all in the title -
I need to fix timecode breaks. That is all.
When there are timecode issues, VOB files not only won't be read properly by applications such as VLC, but the VOB files make most editing apps shit themselves and crash, as explained in my OP....
I am unable to do anything with my VOB files until the breaks are fixed.

dl, install, double-click, works
tried right now: in/out/trim = fully functional, 'fixing TC breaks' avail, but can not check, no 'broken' files at hand.
No, this topic runs cycles :
you need MpegStreamclips ability to handle VOBs (=muxed a+v-files, from videoDVDs) - therefore (and only therefore) Steamclip demands ye ol' mp2-playback-component…
Stefano gave advice on his squared5 website how to install that component on older OS', never tried on Sierra (no need here), have you tried those workarounds?
For the rare moments I need to import from disks, I use Handbrake - but never cared for TCbreaks …
