I just spent a significant part of the weekend manually cleaning up my iTunes library in preparation for turning on Match. Gnh. Good thing I, for some godforsaken reason, kind of enjoy that sort of thing.

iTunes Match, basically Apple will give you 256k AACs on their storage for anything you've got above 96k, up to 10000 songs. $25/yr. You upload anything they don't have to your space on their cloud, then you get access to it from up to 10 devices, without having to use a ton of local storage.

Then they sell your inventory listing to the piracy police.


Kidding! I hope.

Good find Dan. I had been using VLC 0.8.6, so this was good info about a useful upgrade. Unfortunately, the result is a bit of a mixed bag - at least on my system.

Yes, it does what it claims to do: convert DVD audio to MP3/WAV, what have you (even FLAC!). Just be very careful about getting the settings EXACTLY the same as the demo screenshots. I tried creating both MP3 and WAV demo files, which played back perfectly using JetAudio. So that's good.

The problem: VLC doesn't stop at the end of the track that you want. Instead it carries on to the end of the DVD if you let it. You must click the Stop button to terminate the streaming (ripping) at the end of the track, so it helps to know the time position in advance of ripping the track, otherwise you'll be looking to do editing with something like Audacity (though that might be easier in the end: rip the whole DVD as one track and slice and dice it into tracks with Audacity).

Thanks again for pointing out this info Dan.

Oh, good info Kruncher - I thought VLC would break it up into tracks for you if selected the individual titles. I had also forgotten about Audacity - I think you just saved me some time there.

I'll report back with my results when I get around to doing this.

Also FWIW, I could not find an audio only extraction option in Handbrake. I'd be very happy to be proven wrong if someone knows better the intricacies of Handbrake.

Update and help needed on this!

Update - i have tried unsuccessfully several times to rip a particular DVD (Porcupine Tree - Anesthetize) to an audio CD so I can enjoy this in the car. When I rip using VLC (v2.02) using the guide I found in the earlier post, it does not seem to work. The conversion seems to switch to a 2nd track and just keeps repeating making the file size get bigger and bigger and never completes. So I manually stop VLC but the resultant file either does not play or has no audio encoded in it.

Help - Any other suggestions on this? I am willing to pay for software that will do this, but would appreciate if anybody has a recommendation.

Cheers,

do you want to compress the movie so it will fit on a CD or
do you want to extract the audio from the movie and burn it to CD ?

Hi JB, I want to extract the 2 channel stereo audio track from the DVD movie to an audio CD so I can listen in the car. No 'lossy' compression needed - ideally I would rip to FLAC (though wav is OK too).

Edit Reason: flac is compression!
