When ripping videos in iFunia DVD Ripper (in my case converting to MP4 format from a concert DVD), is it possible to keep the music tracks as seperate files? Converting video only to one large MP4 file works perfectly fine. But if I try to convert the video from individual chapters a particular song may begin in the middle of the chapter and end in the middle of the next chapter. Also the chapters (song list) are out of order. Is there a way to do this?
The chapters are divided by the DVD manufacture, not us. iFunia DVD Ripper can only read individual chapters info from DVD disk. So if the chapters of concert DVD disk is not divided by particular songs, we can not change it. But you may follow the steps below to make extract particular songs as you need. In this way you may convert one song at one time.
Step 1: Run iFunia DVD Ripper and load DVD movies
Now get your DVD disc and insert it. Then run iFunia DVD Ripper on your Mac and click the big button "Load..." to load your DVD disk, you may see the name of DVD movie disk if you insert DVD disk before running this DVD ripper tool (see the image below to have an idea). This may take up to a minute or two depending on the contents of the DVD and the speed of your optical drive.
Step 2: Select the titles you'd like to convert
A movie DVD usually has several titles. However, only the longer title is the content of DVD movie ( you may recognize it from the 'Length', see the image below), the shorter titles on the DVD are usually the video backgrounds used in the DVD menu screens and DVD extras like movie trailers. Unless you are a graphic artist, you probably don't want to convert these titles. You may uncheck these titles or just remove them to not convert these useless titles. Just check the movie content title option and convert all chapters of DVD movie content to one single video file.
Step 3: Edit and trim your DVD movies as you like
Click on the title that you'd like to edit, and then click "Edit" button right above to launch "Edit" window. With iFunia DVD Ripper 's built-in editing tool, you may trim and keep the favorite video clip of DVD movie, crop the video to remove the black bars with 4:3/16:9, add special effects, even add a text/image watermark on the output videos.
There're two ways to trim the DVD movies. Let’s start with a brief description of the two usage patterns:
Drag pointer: If you know exactly when the video clip start and end, you may drag the Start & End pointer directly to trim video clip that you like.
Set current point: If you're not sure the start and end point, just preview the movie. And click these two buttons shadowed to set the current point as Start point or End point.
Step 4: Convert DVD movies to any video formats
There are almost all common video formats available for you to choose to convert to. You may convert DVD movie to different video formats for video editing or playback on your mobile devide, such as iPod, iPhone, PSP, cellphone, etc.
Set the output option as you need and then click big 'Start' button to start ripping and converting the trimmed video clip.
Step 5: Repeat steps above to trim more video clips
After the conversion is completed, you'll get the first particular song of your music concert DVD. Just repeat the four steps above to trim other particular songs and convert them to MP4 video format.
