One method of ripping just the audio from a DVD
Authored by: dahjelle on Jan 19, '10 07:41:33PM

Does this method work? I've tried it with a DVD this evening, but, though I can get the video file into iTunes, I have no luck converting it to AAC as the menu selection is greyed out. Is there a step I'm missing?

Hmmm... it does not work. The option is not displayed for videos.
If you have Quicktime Pro, then you can do this:

- Rip the chapter of the DVD using Handbrake. Use AAC for the audio, anything for the video (low quality, as you'll throw it away)
-Option J to bring up the properties of the video.
-Extract the audio track.
-Save as a self-contained mp4.
-Rename extension to m4a .

That should be all! I tried it on one one of my previously ripped videos.
