An incredible song of a film lights up the pictures perfectly.

When I was younger, the tone of Whitney in ‘The Bodyguard’ shook my soul. As I grew older, I tried everything to all the songs from the movie. I bought a DVD and managed to rip the original soundtrack from the DVD with DVD audio rippers.

If you love a song from a DVD, don’t hesitate, let’s extract the audio from the DVD. You can listen to it on your phone and tablet anytime and anywhere.

Method 2. Extract DVD Audio with VLC Media Player

Do you have VLC installed on your computer? If so, this media player software can be a DVD audio ripper too.

Compared to other third-party DVD rippers, this freeware has a weaker performance in ripping DVD audio. But it’s easy and free to use. You can skip the download and install process of getting a new tool.

However, be aware that this freeware can only extract DVD audio from unprotected DVDs due to the absence of decryption ability. Luckily, we can install third-party plugins to VLC to strengthen its decryption.

Tip:: How do you know if a DVD is copy-protected?

Most commercial DVDs sold in stores have copy-protection methods by the manufacturers. DVDs burned by individuals are 100% unprotected.

Step 1:

Launch VLC Media Player on your computer. Insert the DVD into the disc tray of the computer.

Step 2:

On the menu bar of VLC, hit Media and select Conver/Save to launch the Open Media window.

Then, decide the Title, Chapter, Audio track, and Subtitle track of the output.

Hit the drop-down arrow of the Play button and choose Convert to proceed.


Step 3:

On the new pop-up, hit Profile and decide the output format. Select the destination and hit Start. The audio ripping will start.

The most popular MP3 is surely the best option overall. It plays on all music players and has a lower file size.

For Apple devices and game consoles, the AAC seems good.

In pursuit of ultimate quality, the lossless FLAC is the ace. Though the file size is rather big, the quality speaks all. Also, this is a file format that plays on most devices.
