This section deals with two actions:
- Extracting & decrypting ('ripping') the raw data off the DVD
- Demultiplexing (demuxing) the audio streams from the resulting file and creating an index file for the video data.
Ripping the DVD
- Start up DVD Decrypter and choose your DVD drive in the drop down box.
- Choose IFO (InFormatiOn file) in 'Mode'.
- Select the PGC (ProGram Chain) that matches the length of your movie (may be auto-selected):
- Choose your save location
- Click the Rip button. Once this process completes you will be left with:
- One large vob file (the video and audio data),
- If you didn't set DVD Decrypter to create only one VOB file, you will end up with a number of 1gb sized VOBs. Just use the first one for the next step.
- An ifo file (part of the DVD file structure),
- The OGG format chapter file (open it up to see how the chapters are stored),
- A stream information file (with information on the audio and video streams in the vob).
Demuxing the audio and creating the d2v index
- Start up MeGUI
- Go Tools -> File Indexer
- Select the .vob file from DVD Decrypter as the Video Input
- Choose "all audio tracks" under "audio demux"
- Choose the location to save the d2v file to
- Click "queue", then wait for the indexer to complete.
- Go back to the main screen and click on the tab. Click the button to create the d2v.
Once you've done this, proceed to the next section: encoding the audio.
