Extract soundtrack (MP3) from DVD with mplayer

I ‘m wondering if i gonna add a mplayer tips here ? :)

To extract a mp3 from a DVD, the easy way is to use transcode

transcode -i /dev/dvd -x dvd -T 1,2,1 -a 0 -y raw -m track22.mp3

But sometimes, this doesn’t works.. in fact I get a random transcode segfault. As mplayer is the perfect video kniffe. I decided to test this w/ mplayer

mplayer -ao pcm dvd://1 -chapter 22

This won’t build a .mp3 but a big wave file, not matter lame is my friend anyways.

PS: The latest transcode should fix the issue, but I’m unable to build it on my debian. libavcodec2-dev is broken. (Wondering why i’m still using this distro … :(

– thanks #mplayer for the help (as usual)

  1. Better quality ? 192 / Full Stereo
