    Does anybody know of any DVD extractor soft? Something that you had tested please.

    I have a DVD futage that I want to use in a live show but just a fragment of it, I have to edit it.

    Thanx.

    You have to demux the streams, so you'll end up with a sound file and a video file. Then use a tool such as mpeg2decoder to convert the files. You should then be able to use them within quicktime.

    It takes a while... not much you can do about that i'm afraid.

    Arn's already asked several times that we don't discuss illegal activities here, so i'm not going to go into it any more than i have. Just take my word for it: it's much faster in 9.

    It is, yes. Virtually all commercial DVD's have CSS encryption on them. To save them to your hard drive, in a way that it can be played back, you have to cirumvent their encryption. That act is itself illegal.

    Just a note though: i don't know all that much about the laws surrounding DVD hacking, and how it all works, so i could be wrong with my statements.

    For OS X DVD fun.

    Do a search for osEx. Or OSeX. I can't remember which.

    All I'll say.
