    all,
    I want to be able to seperate a soundtrack from a DVD. I am trying to put some tunes from a Music DVD onto my ipod, but obviously don't want the pictures as well. Any ideas what there is out there that will allow me to do this.

    MBP 2GHZ
    100GB @7200RPM
    2GB RAM
    15"

    not sure about this one...

    is that a Macintel powerbook you're using? I know the 3rd link has software encoded in universal binary. The other 2, I dunno but if they're not I don't think they'll work on a Macintel processor...you may want to check me on that, as I could well be mistaken.

    hope this helps

    as beatsme pointed out, WireTap is a nice program for doing such as you described. I have used it in the past with good results.

    There is a linux program to output a wav file from the DVD audio. (DVD::rip)
    There should be a mac program somewhere to do this, instead of just recording something over again. This is not the best way.

    Edit:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/mac3dec/

    This program will decode the ac3 DVD audio stream into a AIFF file. Might need another program to rip the ac3 stream from the DVD though.

    Edit 2:

    Looks like this will do what you want.
