capturing audio from a DVD
on Oct 23, 2007 at 1:44:19 am

Hi. I have a DVD that I need to grab some audio off.
It's corporate thing I slapped together last year and don't have the original working files.
The DVD itself just has 2 folders AUDIO_TS (empty)
and VIDEO_TS with files such as: VIDEO_TS.BUP, VIDEO_TS.IFO,
and VTS_01_1.VOB.
All jibberish to me.

I have a iMac with Premiere and After Effects.
Which also has an internal Mic but I tried just capturing while the DVD played but the volume was extremely low and the ambient noise was way too high.

Any other ideas?

I do this using two bits of software, both of which are freeware, both of which are for OS X: MacTheRipper, which captures the VOB files from the DVD to your local hard disk (and can combine multiple VOB files into one) and MPEG Streamclip, which can convert the ensuing VOB files to DV, Quicktime etc...

The links are and

Should be fairly self-explanatory but get back in touch if you need help.

Best, Ro
