If the DVD does contain standard audio CD format data, there should be no problem. First, check the contents: % cdcontrol info (I'll assume that /dev/acd0 is the drive the DVD is inserted into.) Then you can access every track via /dev/acd0txx, where xx is from 01 up to the number of tracks. Tracks can be copied from the DVD with the dd command: % dd if=/dev/acd0t01 of=track01.cdr bs=2352 These usually are Audio CD data files: 44 kHz stereo, 16 bit. They can be put on a media as audio tracks without any change, for example if you use cdrecord with the -dao -audio flags (if I remember correctly), using a CD or DVD media. You can convert them to OGG/Vorbis or MP3 using the encoder you wish, for example: % oggenc -r -q 6 -o track01.ogg track01.cdr or % sox -x track01.cdr track01.wav % lame track01.wav track01.mp3 (ugly variant, but works; I'm sure you'll find a better way, just have a look at the manpages). If you want, you can add ID3 track information, or simply use a good file name. :-) -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
