    Not so much from a soundtrack. But maybe play a movie and get a sound byte from the movie, then use it for a ringtone, using garage band?

    I do believe you will have to extract the audio from the movie first, then take the audio file and convert it to a ringtone in GB. Try google for a program to extract audio from a video.

    I'm not positive on wether or not you will have to extract the audio first, but I know that it will work if you do.

    Quicktime Pro can select a clip and export as sound; mp3, wav, aiff...

    I've tried this about a hundred times with no success. I extract the audio from the movie clip I want to use as a ringtone, and exporting as AIFF and WAV produces blank audio files (the duration is the same as the video clip). Exporting as MP3 produces a 1 second long blank audio file.

    I'm getting a little frustrated, is there anything else I can try?

    hey when trying to get this song that i soon realized wasnt going to be released till 2009 and only in the uk i pursued downloading the video for it off youtube.

    provided by this neat application here

    when scanning through the different codecs the videos can be converted too i saw an MP3 option i am now listening to the song i had wanted in the first place without the need for the video picture.

    my video was 4:46 roughly not sure how long it would take for a whole movie but thought i might post about it anyways being as it might work for what you need.

    If nothing else works, it may be an issue with CSS... you can also do this with MacTheRipper (and possibly with Handbrake also) -- you use its "demuxing" option to split out the audio, and then I think you also have to convert the audio into an AAC file or other common format, possibly, before putting it in GB.
