Ok I posted about doing this a while back, I finally got an internal dvd rom in the pc. But i am at a loss as to what video or sound files i need in order to rip sounds from them. I am using cool edit pro 2. Can anyone help a lost jedi padawan from succumbing to the dark side?

when i get sounds from a video I tape them and then recorrd them using goldwave. some people's computers and stereo's get hooked up. when i want a sound from my computer I record it on the same tape player and then feed the sound back in recording it on goldwave. this may not be the best way but it is the only way I know of. just tape off the DVD and use some sound program to record and edit it.

hope this helps

I tried myself a few months ago and couldn't get it to work from the individual files :( The video and audio are stored in [/b].vob[/b] files, which are MPG2 format. The only ways I found to do it were:
a) Place a .vob file into my video editing software and re-export the audio track only.
b) Play the DVD through my internal drive, whilst also having my sound editing software open, and just clicking record when the disc is playing. Trouble is this distorted so I had to have the DVD volume nearly at zero.

But if anyone knows a simpler way I'd be interested too :D

what video editing software did you use for the .vob files? You see i could then re-edit the video/audio into an avi or mpeg which i could then re-edit again in cool edit pro in order to isolate the audio which would in fact be the dvd quality i've been looking for.

Well it doesn't give you the best of the best sound quality, but this is the way I do it:

- Klick on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of your screen (near the clock, the system tray)
- Go to properties, and select record
- There you must check the box next to "what u hear", if it isn't checked already that is :)
- Then in the main screen of the audio setup, with all the sliders 'n stuff, select the box under the slider of "what u hear"... This means any sound recording program will record exactly what you hear trough the speakers - including DVD sounds.
- Now just open cooledit (great program btw) and record. Then you just play the DVD and it will record the sounds...

I don't know of any way to directly extract the sounds, but this works too :)

There are easier ways than the ones described, I have a few programs that I use to do it.

Look for a program called SmartRipper, it will allow you to rip directly from the vobs, either audio of video. The tracks will be marked, so you can choose if you want the stereo or dolby digital audio track.

If it is stereo, it will rip it directly to a wav, if it's dolby digital, it will rip it to an ac3 file. This is where you need to get the headac3he program to encode the track back into a wav.

Then once it's a wave file, you can use your other editing programs to play around with it....

PM me if you need more detailed instructions.

Ah yes, that seems to be the way to do it :) But eh... Doesn't that method make like 1GB files on your HDD?? That's a lot for someone who maybe just wants to rip a small sample :)

Anyone know what the hell "mp2"'s are? I tried taping things of the TV on my computer and DVDs, but when I save it, it saves as a MP2. And I can't play it with anything.

And, if I could get the mp2s, to work, I could rip the sound of the video. ;)

mp3's are music. mp2's are video. But I can't run any of them with any program. i've also changed the extensions, but nothing works....

It's okay if the file's a gig or so. I just want to have a perfect sound rip of this sw movie so as to modify these sounds i have had in mind for the game. I've gotten these sounds through other means but they were all lacking in clarity so i was never fully satisfied. But now thanks to you guys i can fulfill this obsession i've had for at least a year. Appreciate the help.

From what I gathered, MP2 is Mpeg2 video. The kind used by DVD's and SVCD's. A program like WinDVD or PowerDVD will play the files when you drag them into the blank window.
There may be a codec available for Windows Media Player to handle them, but I can't be certain about that.
You can get a free trial version of WinDVD from CNET (http://download.com.com/3000-2139-10158695.html?tag=lst-0-1)

That's olny if you intend to rip the entire DVD.... This one allows you to chose chapters, and without checking I am pretty sure you can select small time periods to do it in - so it will create large filles, but you can limit what you want to rip....

If you did picture and sound, it'd be around 4.7GB per layer.... But since it's only sound u r after...
