'[OT] Tools to capature audio from a VCD'

I have some language learning VCDs (Japanese and German). I'd
like to just grab the audio portion and convert  the audio to MP3
so that I can listent to them on the bus. Do you happen to know
some free software (Windows/Linux/FreeBSD will be ok)?

Audio CD grabber is easy with many free softwares (I use
audiograbber/lameenc or Windows Media Encoder) but
VCD is a bit different.

Regards,
Xiaofan

VCDs are MPG, so all you need is a demultiplexer that will separate the
video from the audio in the MPG file.

Last time I looked (many moons ago) there were alot of free options.
Search google for a "MPEG demultiplexer". TTYL

Xiaofan,
you can use mplayer for this with the -dumpfile <file> and -dumpaudio
switches. It will dump the audio track in whatever format it's in, and
from there you can convert it to whatever you need, though chances are
it's already mpeg1 layer2.

Thanks. mplayer works. It is not as fast as I like (take 20+ minutes to rip
a 60-minute VCD) under Ubuntu 7.04 but I am happy it is working.
Last time I used a shareware under Windows called VCDcutter and
it was faster.

And yes the extracted audio if mpeg1 layer 2 CBR with 224kbps bitrate
and 44.1Khz sampling rate.

I tried mpegdemux under Ubuntu and it does not work. But mplayer
(mplayer -dumpaudio vcd://2 -dumpfile something.mp2) works for me.

For manipulating video and audio streams under Windows, VirtualDub is hard to beat.

I usually use VCDCutter to separate audio from video from VCD or MPEG files.
But it only run on Windows though :(
I have been using mplayer for quite some time, knowing that it could
do this particular
thing make me a lot better since I could get rid another application
that must run on Windows. :)

I know VCDCutter is good but it is not free.
