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.

I want to rent a few DVDs and you know, use them on my computer ;)

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.
