Default OT DVD/Computers Wiz - technical question about DVDs and files

I'm not sure if what I want to do is even possible, so go easy on me, ok?

I was just sent a DVD with all of our agencies recent acclaimed ads on them. I would like to remove one ad in particular and post it.

Is there a way to remove that one file so I can host it somewhere else?

When I put the DVD in my notebook, it immediately launches WinVid and begins playing. But, is there anyway to access the DVD's individual files?

Or, am I off my rocker?

Yes there is.

I've done this in the past using DVDShrink. You just rip the movie/chapter you want to your hard drive, and then you can convert it to DivX or other using conversion software.

I'll PM you more details a little later this evening if that's cool.

Check out DVD Decrypter:

You probably need to decrypt it and then use something like AutoGK to encode it into an MPG if you want to post it to the web.

Yes, please do! Thanks! I have DivX at home and don't have a burner on my laptop here.

Is it a just a single image that you want to post, Andrea? If WinVid allows screen captures, just take one, convert the bmp into jpg, and host it.

EDIT: Hmm, sounds like you actually want to reauthor the DVD. My bad, I misunderstood!

Nope, I'd like to show the whole ad. It's an ad I worked on for the Ford C-MAX. I thought OT might like to see what the UK sees as opposed to the US ads.

It's just for the C-MAX brand in general, not any specific model.

Actually, most of the time, the agency disks aren't protected. The VOB file as all you care about. That can be loaded into moviemaker and then saved as an MPG. I used to work with mostly liquor distributors like Brown & Forman...

Movie Maker can handle .vob files? Cool, I didn't know that.

This sounds helpful, Retsyn! Thanks!

What are .vob files and how do I make them work to my advantage here? And, movie maker is....? But, remember, you guys = 'puter nerds. Me = advertising nerd. You need to talk to me like I'm a 4 year old.

I said agency disks. As in from advertising agencies. I've worked with them before. If you wanna do that with caddyshack, you need to descc it first.

Hey, I got something!! Once I've accessed the vob files (which I still don't know what they are) and BUP files (nope, don't know those either), how do I save them as MPG files?

I'm trying to open them, but I'm getting errors.

Moviemaker is the free videio editing package from microsoft. If right click on your dvd drive and select explore, you'll see a file listing like a hard drive. Look for the .vob files those are the actual video files. You may even be able to open them directly from movie maker. If you don't have moviemaker you can download it for free from M$

That has to be done through a video editing package. Like I said, get moviemaker from the MS site... Alternately just do a search on download.com for VOB MPEG converter.

http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...mpeg+converter

For Kaiser:
http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...=UTF-8&q=decss one of these sites will have a link to the software, rin it and it'll rip caddyshack to a direcory on your HD all nice and decrypted.
