i have some music dvds from which i'd like to extract the audio.

now, i know how to extract the video.

i've also read somewhere that i should demux the audio and then use something like besweet to extract the song and keep it as a wav file.

i have 3 Qs:

[1] is there a 1 click solution?

[2] if i use an editor to cut the sections of music i want from the complete dvd, will i be hacking up the audio? in other words, should i extract all 2 hours worth of audio as a wav file and then cut the sections i want?

[3] if besweet is the best tool, is there any settings i should be aware of?

thanks in advance.

[1] Not a reliable one, no.
[2] Maybe, maybe not.
[3] Just use the correct settings. There is only one choice for format (WAV Stereo).

What you want to do:
1- Play DVD in PowerDVD. Take notice of the chapters of the audio you want.
2- Rip in DVD Decrypter, in IFO mode. Only rip the chapters you want, by selecting or deselecting the boxes.
3- Convert the assumed AC3 to PCM WAV stereo in Besweet or another AC3-to-WAV audio tool. FFMPEG is another one.
4- Dump WAV audio into an audio editor like SoundForge. Edit as needed.
