That's the way it is for ALL DVD-A players.

Are you shure?? mmmmmmm....Well.. i don't have a receiver or dvd-a player after all...

I am shure. I have them. It is done like that so people would not "steal" the high definition digital audio.

i don't know....mmm...thinkin' that the receivers are so useless then..,

Why useless? They still can amplify digital and analog signals from several different sources + AM/FM radio!

..there are receivers with better dacs than some dvd-audio players....mmmm.

As well as there are DVD-A players with better dacs than some receivers.

does the eac3to give proper sample number and size (as indicated by the "uncompressed size" field in dvd-a explorer) on an extracted mlp?

The uncompressed PCM stream length matches DVDAExplorer's "Original size" value on all the tracks I've tried it on.

And again: Hi-rez DVD-Audio can be passed digitally, most readily these days via HDMI, formerly by ilink. Some discs have always had non-copyprotected stereo/mono mixes that could be passed via optical/coax.

That's perfectly true.
This whole mess was about SPDIF and multichannel smile.gif
Also, things can almost always be hacked wink.gif
QUOTE (Wikipedia)
A final option is to modify the player, capturing the high resolution digital signals before they are fed to internal D/A converters and convert it to S/PDIF, giving full range digital (but only stereo) sound. There exist already do-it-yourself solutions for some players. There also exists an option to equip a DVD-A player with multiple S/PDIF outputs, for full resolution multichannel digital output.

You probably just extracted the audio of the DVD Video part of your DVD-A disc.

hmmm/ i got the audio from the AUDIO_TS folder


hmmm/ Did you check to see if there is anything inside the AUDIO_TS folder?

well yes, of course

btw: i play the DVD-A rips in VLC under the "open directory" option

This is impossible, VLC can't play dvd-a (mlp, audio_ts....aob) files.

Its only read video_ts part (vob).

hello, i've been reading about this topic with a bit of confusion. a few posts on hydrogen forums and wikipedia say that DVD-A has protection, however i've copied the AUDIO_TS folders to my computer (decrypting the VIDEO_TS folder via DVDDecrypter) and the DVD-A plays fine from my computer. i've done this with releases from major studios such as the Nine Inch Nails With Teeth and the Downward Spiral, David Bowie's Reality and Megadeths Peace Sells But Who's Buying. bascially all i did was copy these folders (right click+copy) and paste them alongside my VIDEO_TS from the DVD-A and they play fine. so i'm wondering what the deal is with the so called copyprotection of these, did the labels give up when the protection was cracked or am i missing something.

Also anyway to get these into 5.1 flacs without buying an expensive program?

What program do you use to play the DVD-A ripped to the hard disk? I just went through the same process and find only .AOB files in the AUDIO_TS directory --- would they need to be converted to .FLAC or such first? And how would you go about that?

like i said i just copied directly, idk if the audio is degradated though, it sounds like its a possiblity for the megadeth dvd-a but not-so-much for the nine inch nails dvd-a

So I just picked up the Beatles LOVE DVD-A disc and am trying to decipher what is written here. Could someone explain how to rip the AC3 or DTS to individual wav files using DVD Decrypter so that they can be converted to flac? I read elsewhere that AC3 and DTS are both compressed and it wasn't worth the effort. I have the standard audio CD that was included in the package. Should I just stick with this and forget about the whole thing?
