Having recently built a dedicated music/video music media player, I have sorted out the cd side, using dBpoweramp for ripping and Foobar 2000 for playback etc, I now need some advise on which video ripping suite to use ?.I have experimented with some free ripping suites but they seem to struggle with music videos that have a lot of interaction content on them ( Iron Maiden, Rammestein ) as an example, omitting sections. I dont mind paying for a descent ripping suite, I just want to archive them to hard drive successfully for playback through my HiFi. I would appreciate some suggestions and advise. Also could you suggest a playback suite for the ripped files.

Though I haven't used any recent version of the program there was a trial version (downloaded from CNET Downloads)
of a program called "DVD Audio Extractor" that I used several years ago to extract the audio (as wav) from some concert DVD's

These DVD's were companion DVD's to audio CD's of the same concert and my "issue" was with the editing the studio originally used

The Music CD has a run time of 80min (more or less) while the DVD with it's two hour run time simply didn't require editing.

So what wound up "on the cutting room floor" were the introductions, conversation between band members on stage and between the singer
and the audience and typically two or more songs (often cover versions originally by other artists) perceived as "less popular"
(Metallica's S&M has a somewhat different feeling in the DVD version VS the CD version)

In any event I wanted to listen to those tracks while mobile...

The version available at the time had a somewhat clunky user interface but it was reasonably direct in it's function
The neat thing was that it would typically break up a DVD into separate audio tracks even if doing so was not available
as a menu item on the DVD, which saved quit a bit of tedious work "splitting" tracks into individual files.

at the time my issues with the user interface made it unjustifiable to continue using it past the 30day trial
(it stops working after 30 days) and I've been busy, so I haven't tried the more recent version.

I don't know if a direct link to the software download at CNET is allowed so I didn't post it, but knowing it's on CNET
along with the name in quotes above should get you there
