Rip Audio Track from DVD
I just bought Lord of the Dance DVD. I'd like to be able to rip the audio track from it and put it on to MP3/Audio so I can listen to it in the car.

What software would I need to do this? Can anyone recommend a good HOW-TO doc?

my suggestion would be to use mplayer's mencoder to rip the audio (it would be something like 'mencoder -dvd 1 -ovc copy -oac pcm -o output.avi') and then use lav2wav (from mjpeg-tools) to extract the audio and finally convert the wav to mp3.

you can do it all with just the mplayer package. First create an avi file containing an empty video stream and mp3 audio

mencoder dvd://1 -ovc null -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr:br=192 -o michael_flattley_is_really_annoying.avi
and then remove the audio to a seperate file

mplayer -dumpaudio michael_flattley_is_really_annoying.avi -dumpfile him_an_his_silly_feet.mp3
but then why you'd want to convert it to mp3 in the middle. if space is not an option then just straight to pcm...

mplayer dvd://1 -dumpfile he_thinks_hes_so_cool.wav -ao pcm
i think that's the right syntax for that...

Playing only one chapter.
I figured out how to get it to play from one chapter "-chapter 3" but how do I get it to stop after that one chapter?

Never mind re-read the man page... -chapter 3-3 will get only one chapter.
