View Full Version : ripping sound only from a dvd video

Apolgies in advance if this an inane query

Is it is possible to make a cd from the sound track on a musical dvd video, which is not copy protected

Yes, this is possible. You will need something capable of decrypting the DVD, and a transcoder capable of separating the audio and video streams. I recommend you use VLC for this - it can play to a file rather than your screen, and it can decrypt/transcode the audio on the fly too (you will want PCM/WAV 16Bit 44.1KHz). Then just open the resultant file in any wave editor and split it into the correct tracks.

Will download VLC and go from there

Now that looks useful, but I notice it's shareware - what are the limitations?

Another vote for the DVD Audio Extractor :thumbs:

Bletch - It has a 30-day limit, other than that it is the full version
