MeGUI/Guides/Basic Guide/Ripping

Basic InfoEdit

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 DVDEdit

  • Start up DVD Decrypter and choose your DVD drive in the drop down box.
  • Choose IFO (InFomatiOn 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 indexEdit

  • 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.
