    Is there any way to rip the audio from a DVD VOB file? My friend sent me a rip of a concert DVD and I'd like to have the audio to listen to by itself.

    I'm not sure about ripping directly, but you could use Audio Hijack Pro to record the audio as it plays...

    Easy. Pass the DVD through Handbrake, then open the m4v file in quicktime and extract the audio. Save the extracted audio as an AIF (or some such).

    They should be in a VIDEO_TS folder, just open that. Alternatively, you might try MPEG Streamclip.

    Oh, so your friend gave you a copy. I don't think that is legal...

    I stated clearly in the OP that it is a rip. Also keep in mind that not every country has the same laws as yours.

    Open the VOBS in FFMPEG and convert the audio only. Works fine for me.

    Get an audio recorder, start playing the rip and turn the audio recorder on. If you want to separate the files just go into an audio editor (i think you can do it in garageband) and just "clip" the files
