Extract music from DVD

Postby idiotkiwi on Fri Jun 20, 2008 4:36 am

I have a couple of commercial DVDs of films and would like to extract the music for use on my player
for use outside. (SansaC250/Rockbox).

I have looked at the forums but have not seen anything that fits the case.

Any suggestions or pointers to references available.

Thanks in advance

Euan

I think both music and video are in the same file.
If so you need to capture the sound like you capture other streaming audio
There is a recent post (or posts) about this (Something like "how do I capture internet radio")
Holidays and forum downtime has given me lots to do now so please try to look it up yourself
Come back if you need more help

I am new to Linux, so I don't know much about Linux software... but I DO decrypt and convert DVD's for the purpose of putting them on my portable media player (Zune).

I use 2 programs (both Windows unfortunately, and I have no idea whether they will work in Wine or not.):
1. DVD Decrypter or DVD Shrink (My milage varies between the two. I think it depends on what the manufacturer does to encrypt the DVDs.)
2. MediaCoder

The idea is that you use one of the backup tools (Decrypter or Shrink) to save the DVD image to your hard drive- unencrypted. (< - Key word here.) Then you use MediaCoder to convert the DVD video file (.vob) to a more portable, smaller file. (In my case, it's .mp4) The nice thing about Media Coder is that it will convert practically ANYTHING to practically ANYTHING. It's not the most user-friendly software, but it is POWERFUL. For my Zune, there is a drop down menu at the top that allows you to select a portable media player. (Note: Firefox must be installed for this to work) Different players have different options, and some may work better than others (I know my option for a .wmv container made my Zune software convert it back to .mp4 when I tried to sync- so it wasn't worth it.) so you will have to experiment, but it's pretty point and click.

Now, if you want to simply convert the audio, that should actually be easier and you wont even need the portable-media-player-interface. At the bottom of the software's window, it has tabs dictating the Video and Audio settings for the file you are trying to create. Somewhere (sorry, I would be posting screen shots and everything showing you how to do this if my fs wasn't corrupted by GParted a while back... and I am operating entirely on memory) there is an option like "Enable Video"- make sure that is unchecked. Next go to the options for audio and make sure "enable audio" IS checked. Set the format you want the audio to be encoded to, click start and let the software do it's magic. When it's done, you will have all of the .vob file converted to an audio file.

But wait: you want them to be mashed together into one big audio file. No problem. Before you click start, notice a dropdown menu that is just below the information 'tree' that is likely to be set to Default. Click that till and select Join, to join the files together during conversion. Then click start.

I hope this helps... if you actually read this and it doesn't make sense(likely), or you need more help, feel free to PM/Email me and I will help you the best I can.

Maybe you found it, but I could not by myself find a simple solution in Linux. For my own use, I switched to Windows for this very work and used dvd-audio-extractor or dvd.audio.ripper .
I followed a guide on Ars Technica entitled 'A guide to ripping and encoding music'.
I cannot be more helpful for this moment; please post back a message if you need more details.
edit:
I'm sorry: I wrote this after having read your post, but not the former answer which seems very complete. I will compare this experience with mine, and will post if I find something more.
In any case, some work has to be done in Linux.
