    i have one of those dvd music single (what a bad idea they were).
    there are 2 "audio" tracks on it, but on the DVD they are actually movies but with a static image.

    i want to rip the audio so i can import into itunes. i want to rip to AAC 256kpbs. i was able to rip the audio to a PCM file using mactheripper, but i don't know what to do with the PCM file to convert it to AAC ?

    any suggestions? i read something about using mpegstremclip to do it, but i don't know how to do this using that app.

    I cant remember exactly but I think there may be an option to do this in Handbrake if you still have the DVD. Also if you get the movie into quicktime I think you can export just the audio...

    i have the DVD in the drive as we speak.

    i have handbrake installed but only see video ripping options, not audio.

    hi

    I think there may be a way to do that conversion from PCM using VLC. the FILE|Open... menu has loads of things you can try.
    If you have a PC with Windows at hand and with drivers that have not been crippled, you can just record the sound from its "Stereo mix" sound input.
    Or try www.zamzar.com for online conversion.

    no windows... this is a mac forum afterall !

    VLC can't do anything with the PCM file that was ripped, can't open it.
    it can open the VOB file, but as far as i can see, there are no rip options

    i should also clarify that when i said convert to AAC 256kbps, i mean a .m4a file that is AAC.

    mpeg streamclip, baby

    mpegstreamslip will let you export just the audio in .aac in a .mp4 wrapper at 256kbps or more; for fuh-ree!

    I've just discovered this handy thing and love it... essential.

    I second mpeg streamclip. I use it every week to rip audio off of a sermon dvd of to post on church website. Works like a champ and there are many options as to how to save it.
