i believe VLC will do that.  You can google other paid options.

DVD Audio Extractor is a paid software that will do what you want. I think has 1 week demo that will get you what you need.

I think MC will do what you want. I believe jmone has posted about it, if my memory serves me correctly. Make particles for each song, then convert. You should be able for search for this.

Hi Badger and thanks for the pointer to VLC.
I downloaded/installed and I'm using VLC but I find it difficult navigating the application finding a simple solution, which I suspect it can do but it's a major effort getting clarification on proposed VLC syntax on extraction protocols -- as per one of the examples given for Extracting audio in FLAC format:

"c:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" -I dummy --no-sout-video --sout-audio
--no-sout-rtp-sap --no-sout-standard-sap --ttl=1 --sout-keep
--sout "#transcode{acodec=flac}:std{mux=raw,dst=C:\User\Admin\Desktop\yourAudio.flac}"
Video.TS:///C:\User\Admin\Desktop\yourVideo.mp4\#0:01-3:38 vlc://quit

1. First issue: "c:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe"     I do not believe " quotes are permitted in Windows CMD.exe.
2. Next: C:\User\Admin\Desktop\yourAudio.flac -- I assume this refers to my source DVD, but why the yourAudio.flac ?
3. Next: C:\User\Admin\Desktop\yourVideo.mp4\#0:01-3:38 -- I assume this is pointing to my destination folder, but why
yourVideo.mp4, and why mp4 ? Shouldn't this be a flac extension, not mp4?


Just a few rhetorical questions, no need to respond unless you can offer a clarification.

Thanks again,
Zaro

syndromeofadown, Thanks again for the DVD Audio Extractor pointer.

I downloaded, installed and I'm running my first DVD Audio extraction, it's generating individual flac files (love it) all within a few minutes of getting the application up and running, could not have been more easier to use. 

I had tried MC29, but it seem to output one [continous] 2Gb flac file that I could not get MC to recognize or open.

Someone had referred me to VLC, which I also downloaded and ran but it's way to difficult for this retired computer guy to figure out the VLC syntax. DVD Audio Extractor saves the days.

cheers.

It is pretty straight forward to either rip just the Audio from an original disc, or if you already have it ripped then pull out the audio track as FLAC.

For example if you already have the extracted video in MC, Just, Right Click on it --> Library Tools --> Convert Format --> and in the "Convert Format" Dialogue Box check the "Convert Video to Audio".  Similar process with ripping or if it is stored as an ISO, mount it and when MC offers to rip it, you can select to just rip the Audio to Flac.

Then there is this guide and breaking up a music video disc into individual tracks - https://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Particles

Note: This would be easier if there was an option to create particles by chapter, but that feature (which requested) has not been implemented.

I've been using DVD Audio Extractor to do that successfully for years with both DVD and DVD-Audio discs. It's pretty straightforward to use. Not sure if it codes files to FLAC, I select WAV output type and then convert to AIFF with dBpoweramp.

Coming in build 25 and later:
NEW: Added the ability to create particles from chapters in a video.

Thanks a lot for the suggestion.

I've been testing Matt's changes and it is working well (tested on music videos that are either one big MKV or Blu-ray discs). 

In most cases you can simply "Right Click --> Auto Create Capture Particles" and MC will add entries for each chapter as a "particle".  So no extra files just library entries with a playback range for each chapter.  You can now select all of these and do a format convert to get a FLAC (or whatever) audio track.

Nice and well done!  Love it.
