• 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.

I have some video files that i have on a DVD that I can watch but I can't get the sound to work. I first had to download the MPEG-2 Converter for Quicktime for me to even watch the video files but the sound still does not work. I have tried running it in Quicktime, DVD player, Divx player, Iphoto and Itunes but nothing is working.

Any ideas??

Is the DVD a standard video DVD like Hollywood would produce, or is it just a DVD with data files on it that happens to be Mpeg files?

When you use QuickTime, type comman-I and see if it tells you what the video and audio formats are.

Look into MPEG Streamclip to transcode (convert) the file. Or look into installing Perian which allows QuickTime to play back even more formats. Also, VLC can play back many formats too.

I downloaded Perian but the sound is still not there. The DVD is just one with some recorded video on it not an actual movie.
