• The Mac-Forums Community Guidelines (linked at the top of every forum) are very clear, we respect US law and court precedence when it comes to legality of activity.

    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying tools in the context that they are used for legal purposes as outlined in this post.

MP3s from DVD??



i've seen software for sale that allows you to rip mp3 files from a DVD soundtrack; like from a music concert on DVD...... but only for WINDOWS OS. is there software for MAC OS? or some other way to create mp3 music files from, say, a sting video on DVD?


There is a piece of sotware for the Mac - OSeX - that will split the video and audio tracks from a DVD movie. You should be left with .vob files and .ac3 files. Then get a program like bd4go and convert the ac3 into AIFF, and voila.
