What Linux Software Replaces DVD Decripter in Windows for Demux Audio?


Years a go, in Windows I used a program, DVD Decrypter. I used it in Demux mode, to take the audio from a DVD.

Is there a program in Linux (Mint 17.3) that takes the audio files from a DVD?
I don't want to boot into Windows.

Chris.

A web search for "rip audio from dvd linux" will turn up a number of choices, including VLC, AcidRIP, Handbrake, among many others.

I've never used any of them for that purpose.

These either don't work or are not practical. For about 20 years, just doing a websearch and using the first 20 are a disaster and not what I'm looking for.

Thank you for your reply,
Chris.

DVD's store the video in .vob files with an index. DVD's don't have audio files on them separate from the video.

Use a tool like lsdvd to find which chapter you want and then dump it to file.
Example:
Code:
mplayer dvd://1 -dumpstream -dumpfile file.vob
You could also do that with mpv, vobdump, sorry I never use vlc
You'll need libdvdcss installed for content descrambling.
Dump just the audio to file
Example:
Code:
ffmpeg -i file.vob -vn -c:a copy outfile.m4a
The audio on a DVD is ac3, or it can be wav
If you want you can reencode that smaller to a different format.
Code:
ffmpeg -i file.vob -vn -c:a libmp3lame -b:a 32k outfile.mp3
You can also use mencoder, tanscode, handbrake...etc.

If you want to do that direct from DVD then pipe one command into another.

You've looked for 20 years and could not find this? Sounds like you haven't tried too hard. You can do a search on LQ and get scores of posts about DVD dumping. Not so much recently, but 10 years ago all the time.

You can't get audio files from a DVD. Dump the .vob then take the audio out of it.

Yes, ffmpeg, mencoder, handbrake, transcode, lsdvd, mplayer, mpv....do work. If you can't get them to work then you've got something installed wrong, don't have dvdcss installed, or you need to read the man pages more.

I'd use ffmpeg. I don't think there is a GUI for ffmpeg, but Linux men are rugged. If it's too much trouble to use a command line then it isn't worth doing at all!

A quick and easy way:

1. rip the dvd to mp4 with handbrake;
2. Take the resulting mp4 file and open it with Audacity;
3. After it loads in Audacity, go to File > Export. Select the audio format you want, mp3, flac, etc and let Audacity do its thing.

I discovered this method by accident and it's worked on all mp4 files I've tried it as well as mkv files. Using Audacity you can also edit the sound to record just the portions you want like you would any other audio file with Audacity.

VLC can usually copy to an audio file. This assumes you have a way to actually load the DVD or remove encryption.
