Hi!. I know (from google) that people have asked this question but I never saw an answer that helped me specifically so I am going to ask myself.

I have a DVD from when I went flying in Hawaii for vacation. I would like to show friends/family the video, but the DVD includes my conversation with the pilot instructor for the entire 30 minutes of the video. I just HATE how I sound and don't want anyone to listen to 30 minutes of me making small talk with a stranger. I would like to remove the audio from the DVD and then add music to replace the sound.

I'm sure I could figure out how to do this in imovie, but it seems to be just about impossible to convert the DVD to a format I could import into imovie without PAYING. I DO NOT WANT TO PAY FOR ANYTHING. I simply do not have the money. If ANYTHING, maybe 5 or 10 dollars, but nothing more than that! I'm living off of taco bell as it is! lol

I found free programs that allowed me to convert the DVD to mp4 and mpeg, but these still do not open in imovie. I read that i need to download some mpeg codek or something for quicktime, but this is 20 dollars so I can't do that.

I have downloaded a bunch of programs only to find that they will only convert 3 minutes of video unless you pay 35-50 dollars.

What can I do so that I can remove the audio/add music without paying for anything?

I don't have to use imovie, so if you know of another free program that is easy to use that I can edit mp4, mpeg (without the codek thing), or straight from the DVD that would be good too! Or any other ideas! i'm open to suggestions!

p.s. I'm not the most computer savvy person so try to dumb down your responses as much as possible


Thank you for your help!

get Mac the Ripper (free for 2.6.6, google it) rip it with that to VOB. then download handbrake and convert it with that to mp4. then open the mp4 in MPEG Streamclip, and export to a file that iMovie reads. you can delete the audio with streamclip too.

all the software is free just give it a google

GREAT! thanks soooo much!!!! I had already used something to convert to the file to an mp4 and an mpeg file (it might have been handbrake but i tried so many different things I can't remember which one i ended up using)...it was the streamclip that was giving me problems...

STUPID ME never tried to use the mp4 file in streamclip. I kept trying my mpeg file and so it kept telling me to buy the mac codec.

Once I used the mp4 file instead I was able to convert it and upload it to imovie with no problems!!!
