DVD Audio (*.AOB ripping)

Postby JesusFreak on Mon Apr 07, 2003 11:22 pm

Just to note: This is not for ripping illegal copies of a DVD-Audio. It is mine, I just want to know how to rip it to play off of my Hard Drive.

Does anyone know of a program or a method to rip DVD-Audio tracks (*.AOB files) for playback off of the hard drive?

Anyone?

(If this is in the wrong forum, please LMK. I'll be happy to move it.)

I've never tried it but DVDDecrypter might work using Stream Processing.
I know you can use analog-in on your soundcard to record but it will only be stereo.

There are no real DVD audio rippers yet.
Using DVDDecrypter or Smartrippes is the best you can do for now .
Remember that DVD audio is very compressed and will sound worse than CDDA.

I'm actually talking about DVD-Audio DVD's, not the audio from a DVD movie.

DVD-Audio is uncompressed, and sounds amazing.

Sorry, you're right about that. But as far as I know there is no way of ripping that type of DVD-Audio yet.

Well, that's not quite the whole truth :)

Just to add to the above, so there won't be any misunderstandings.

DVD discs can also contain uncompressed 48 kHz / 24 bit or 96 kHz / 24 bit PCM tracks (calle often DAD discs). These should be (?) rippable using DVD rip tools.

Also, DTS discs can also contain lossless compressed 96kHz / 24 bit data.

These can naturally be of much higher quality than any CD Audio (including HDCD).

Then there is also DVD-A (DVD Audio discs), which can contain up to 192 kHz / 24 bit lossless compressed audio data. I don't think anybody has yet cracked DVD-A encryption (which is different from DVD video discs). So no, ripping of these yet.

This is perhaps the best consumer audio format along with SACD right now and while the recording/mixing technology may not be able to take full advantage of it yet, it can theoretically sound much better than any CD Audio.

But yes, most audio tracks from DVD video discs are compressed with lossy compression algorithms and are not usually up the level of normal Red Book standard audio CDs.

Then again 99% of the music people listen to these days is so heavily (dynamically) compressed, limited, expanded, auralized and further processed that it doesn't mean diddly squat.

Even 192 kbps mp3 is good enough for most craply compresse pop music of today.
