I an running windows 7 sp1 and office 2010. I would like to rip the audio portion of a DVD to my music folder. I downloaded Audacity version 2.0.2 but can’t figure out how to use it can somebody please help me with this? I would really appreciate it.
Probably the easiest way is set up to record “Music Playing On The Computer” and just play the DVD and press record in Audacity.
If you don’t do it that way, you need DVD ripper software and an additional Video Object manager to split the sound into a file – assuming you want 5.1 Dolby Surround with Dial Norm. If you want straight stereo, then you may need additional mix-down software.
Sound on a DVD is not one simple thing.
If the DVDs are not copy protected then you may be able to extract the audio from the VOB files on the DVD by importing them into Audacity “File > Import > Audio”. You will need to install FFMpeg for this to work: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/faq_installation_and_plug_ins.html#ffdown
Thank you, I played it and clicked on Record but evidently it did not work, or at least I couldn’t find it. I did not set up to record “Music Playing On The Computer” because I don’t know how to do this. Can you please tell me? Thank you.
