DVD to audio

Posted by cavell (My Page) on

I have an external DVD recorder. I made a DVD of a concert from a "tv" show. I want to transfer the content to a cd that I can listen too. How do I transfer the file from the DVD to my computer? I have a combo device in computer. It is a DVD player and cd burner. Do I need any special software to do this?

RE: DVD to audio

It's been a long time since I ripped a DVD, and even longer since I ripped just the audio.

Seems like I bought something, don't remember what or why, wouldn't do it again though. "DVD Audio Extractor" maybe? Now where did I put my key? :)

Here's a VLC method:

That would get you the mp3, you'd still need to burn as an audio CD, but that should be easy enough.

Here's something else that looks like it might work: I'm not recommending it because I haven't tried it.

Here is a link that might be useful: The way I usually do things. :)

RE: DVD to audio

I have never done this, but if I were, I would simply take the audio out from the DVD player into the audio in on my computer (RCA to 3.5mm mini-plug, the blue input on the back of your computer).

You will need to download a free audio app like Audacity to record the audio, Follow its instructions which are easily found in a search for recording LPs and tapes and the like.

Good luck,


RE: DVD to audio

Ah, good idea. It's a Philips DVD unit. Has composite in but not hdmi in and it has a bunch of outputs. Dig audio out, hdmi out, composite a/v out and component video out. Darn copyright protection squashed the hdmi in/out function. So, I can use the composite or RCA audio out and feed the signal to computer jack audio in.
