But they are hard to work with in that DVD format. lots of .VOB files and DVD menu files, etc.  If I could convert these to mp4 (h.264) files they would be better for storing online in a safe place.

MakeMKV works nicely for extracting the video file from a DVD (or BD).  
It does not change the encoding though, so the video will still be MPEG2.
