Sometimes we want to hear only the audio from a DVD without watching the picture. This is common with concert DVDs, that we may also want to have in the format of audio CD, so that we can hear more easily. The tools we are going to use are DVD Decrypter with which we are going to rip the audio from the DVD, AC3Filter and Goldwave that we need to convert the audio to wav, create the tracks and maybe normalize the volume. You can find the first 2 in our downloads database, to download a free trial of Goldwave click here.
A few words about Goldwave. Goldwave is the only program in this guide that is not freeware. However there is shareware version and you can try it out. Goldwave is a very good editing program and very cheap also, so I suggest that if you want to do some basic editing, you get it. Let's start with the guide now!

First of all we are going to use DVD Decrypter. Open it and select Tools -> Settings.

Click the IFO Mode tab and there enable stream processing (1) and disable file splitting (2). Click OK and return to the main window.

Here first of all select the IFO mode (1). Then select the main move PGC (here only 1) (2) and click the stream processing tab.

Here make sure that stream processing is enabled (1). Then select only the audio track you want to rip (2) and with that selected select Demux (3). Start the ripping and you are going to have an .AC3 file that we are now going to load in Goldwave.

Make sure you have AC3Filter installed unless Goldwave will not load the file. Now go File -> Open. Select All in file type (1) and then load the AC3 file (2) and click Open.

Goldwave will decompress the audio file and then load it in the main window.

The first thing you should do is to save it in a wav format. Go File -> Save As.

Save it as a Wave file.

Note that this is not necessary, but Goldwave will edit a wave file much faster.

Next thing will be the creation of some Cue Points so that we can split the file in tracks (of if you don't want you don't need to do it!)
From the Goldwave menu go Tool -> Cue Points

Now here if your DVD has pause between the tracks you can use Auto Cue (2) and it will find them. If not you have to find the point you want and click New (1).
After you have created all the cue points click Split file (3).

Here set the file name you want to use (1) select checkbox (2) and finally OK (3) to create the files. After you have done that you can burn with the burning program of your choice, I use Nero.

Of course you have to eliminate the gap between the tracks in order to make a great CD. Just select them, right-click and select Properties, and there set the Pause to 0 seconds. Then burn and you are ready!
If you need a more detailed guide for Nero, you can find a guide here.

OK, thanks. The guide says that the output file is AC3 but it must contain an AC3 soundtrack inside the VOB "container". I found that Audacity opens the VOB file without any hassle so should be good to go from there.

From step 5 to the end the guide shows how you can convert the .VOB file from DVD Decrypter to mp3 files using Goldwave.

There are programs that directly convert to mp3, but they are not free.

I followed the instructions but ended up with a VOB file as the output. Is there an option within DVD decryptor to change the output file?

try using AnyDVD or rip the DVD to your hard disk using DVD Fab HD Decrypter first.

DVD decrypter decrypts only the first 5 minutes of a 52 minute DVD. I did exactly as shown. Any ideas?

Christian shoes for gorgeous women's is not as general in the States as his Christian Sandals shoes, but also for his distinctively styled handbags. God forgive me, I interviewed Christian Louboutin while wearing a pair of trainers. What remains most identifiably hiphoppish about it is the beat-in-the-bod y that serves as ground for Classic Christian Louboutin growing-and contradictory-r epertoire of lyrical lambaste it leverages.Some of the dressiest elegant Christian Louboutin pumps also feature sparkling rhinestone bands layered along the raised sole and Christian Louboutin heels.
