Taking out part of DVD

  [email protected]© 17:52 06 Dec 2005

I have a DVD which isn't copyrighted or anything like that and what I want to do is take out about a 30 second piece of it and make it as 'another' small DVD/Mpeg. Is this possible and how?

You could download DVD shrink for free that will allow you to edit your movie

"I have that software but I need to know how to do it."

Look in the Help files under Topics, Guides and you will be directed to seeral comprehensive manuals for the program.

Thanks Mark5001 your link helped greatly. I have 'cut' the part of the DVD I need and saved it to a folder on my desktop. In that folder is 2 further folders Audio_TS and Video_TS, how do I convert them to an mpeg so I can e-mail it to somebody?

.VOB files are Basicly just Mpeg2 files so if you can use the Mpeg2 format then you don"t have to convert them at all in most cases just cut out the scenes you want and save them with a .Mpeg extention...
There are a Few Vob/Mpeg2 cutters that are freeware like "Chopper XP" or "Mpeg2Cut" ..You can find them both if you do a Google search....

You can also use DVD2AVI to convert the files to AVI or better yet you can use "Virtual-Dub-Mpeg2" which you can download here:

click here

Also download and install this:

AC3ACM Decompressor
click here

That makes it so Virtual-Dub can read the audio in VOB files....
