My Dad burned me a DVD of home movies. Is there an easy, free way to extract clips in a common format?
My Dad burned me a DVD on his Mac, and I want to extract and share clips from it. Is there an easy way to do this? Like, pull clips off in AVI or MOV format, with sound?
I'm assuming that there is no copy protection on it, but that's just an assumption. I am completely ignorant about DVD ripping. The root file system of the DVD looks like every other DVD I've ever bothered to nose around in:
and all kinds of BUP and IFO and VOB files in there. Also, Vista identifies the File System of the DVD as "UDF" if that's helpful.
Here's the menu I get
when I pop it into my Windows Vista Home laptop. This may be informative with regards to its structure - I don't know. I don't have a Mac available, FWIW.
So I'm wondering if there's an easy way to pull stuff off of this DVD (using MS Vista Home OS) and share. I'm worried that the answer will be, "If you could do that easily, then you could pirate every DVD you rent from NetFlix, so, NO, you can't." Any clues welcome. Thank you.
