Default Importing Audio From a DVD???

Does anyone know how to import audio from a dvd?

I went into movie, but the import audio was not available to select.

Do some dvd's have blocks on them?

i want to get audio from dvd's to chop up for samples, is there any third party software that will allow me to do this. Extract the audio from a dvd?

I'm sure protools can do this, i must be doing something wrong.

Thanks!

OK, get ready for this.

Get Extractor. When your DVD is in the drive, double click on the DVD icon; you'll see a folder that says "Video_TS"; double click that and drag all the ".VOB" files (VTS_01_1.VOB, etc.) into Extractor. Make sure they're all selected (blue). Check the "Save AC3 Audio" checkbox; if you want one audio file that runs the whole length of the movie, check the "Single File" box, otherwize you'll have multiple files of shorter length (your best bargain).

Next, get mAC3dec. This will convert the extracted AC3 file to .aiff or .wav. Just drag and drop.

Audio Hijack/Audio Hijack Pro will let you rip audio from DVD's. One thing to keep in mind is that these programs record audio in "real time" rather than simply pull data off the disc.

Hello. It depends on what kind of DVD you are referring to, and more to the point, what kind of audio file the DVD was authored with. I would dare say about 100% of DVD-Video's in the market (Jurassic Park, Eric Clapton in Concert, etc) are authored with compressed Dolby Digital, DTS or MPEG-2. Pro Tools will only read MP3's and WMA's in the compressed arena.

If the video had actual .aif or .wav files it could probably read them and import them. However if you are talking about a DVD-R, -RW, +R or +RW disc, then whatever .aif, .wav, .mp3 or .wma data is in there will be imported with no problem.

Audio Hijack is a cool download to get dvd audio

the free demo version lets you record 10 minutes worth of time per session.

just right for quick samples
also it will transfer directly into iTunes

which is nice

i tried both, neither worked.

audio hijack kept crashing and so did mAC3dec. the only one that seemed to work was Extractor, but then it needs to be converted to .wav or.aiff and i'm stuck.

anyone help?

OK, try bd4go instead of mAC3dec. I don't know why it would crash.

EDIT: Are you Quitting DVD Player before you try to convert? You might just be overwhelming the system (?).

Install SoundFlower...you can route any audio from any CoreAudio aware app to any other CoreAudio aware app....

its not as easy it sounds to rip audio from dvds because most of them are encrypted. my solution to just getting a few samples from a dvd is to just route the audio from a dvd player into your preamp and sample the sound bytes one be one in real time.

it sounds archaic but it is really the least time comsuming way i've found to get samples, unless you don't mind ripping the entire dvd, stripping the audio and sifting through 1gig chunks to find the sample you want.

If you install SoundFlower and learn how to use it, you never leave the digital domain at all....
