How To Extract Music from DVDs

Editor's Note: Ripping music from your DVD can be done using a program called X2CD Music CD Burner.  This tutorial demonstrates the steps necessary to extract the specific music you want from any DVD.

Due to the complexity of DVD encryption and the slow speed of decrypting DVD contents, we decide not to burn DVD soundtrack cd directly to avoid waste of blank cds. The preferred procedure is listed as following: convert DVD to mp3 or wav, then burn these mp3s or wavs to cd.  Now x2cd supports DVD navigator to treat the whole DVD as one continuous stream, not several individual .vob files any more! If you get decrypted vob files in your harddisk, you can add them as usual media files. 

1.       Insert your DVD disc into your computer's DVD driver  

2.       Start X2CD and press "Convert" button to convert DVD to mp3/wav.

3.       Open DVD's *.IFO file. They are usually located in the VIDEO_TS directory in the DVD disc. Any one is ok. Once x2cd opens the files, x2cd will analyze titles available and add them into media list for your choice. 

      Select DVD vob directory  Select DVD vob file

4.       X2CD adds all titles the DVD has, as following:


5.       Select the segments from the DVD title.   Double click the item or press button Select DVD vob segment, then you will see the media chooser dialog. It's also used to listen to the music selected.

Set MPEG stream segment dialog

    You need to select an appropriate language ( for multi-language DVDs).Select MPEG audio stream

    You can seek in the file and find the beginning and ending of a soundtrack. When you find the beginning, press button  Set audio stream begin time and you will get the current start time.
Press button Set audio stream end time for setting the stop time. You can also click on the displayed time to popup a small window to adjust start/stop time accurately.

After that, press button Add sound segment to add this segment into the list. And you will be able to select next soundtrack just from the ending point of the previous track. Repeat until all contents in this vob file are checked and selected. Then press the red button to exit this dialog. 

Functions of other buttons in this dialog:

Goto last sound segment Jump to the previous track.

6.  Repeat 3. and 4. until all necessary segments are selected.

7.  Arrange the order if necessary

8.  If you need to rename the track, select the item first and then single click the title area. You will be prompt to enter the new title for the track.

9. Press "start" to convert selected DVD to mp3s or wavs. 

10. Before start the session, you can select wav format and mp3 bitrate you preferred.

Frequency select "Original" means use the audio source's original wav format. Usually DVD has a 48Khz sampling rate while CD is using 44Khz sampling rate. It's recommended that you should use 160kbits/s or higher for CD quality mp3s.
