    hi there. im trying to complete the entire Kenny Loggins: Outside from the Redwoods music collection. However, the audio CD doesnt include ALL the songs from the actual concert. The DVD which I bought a long time ago is more complete. Is it possible to extract the audio and convert to MP3? (this is legal right, since I bought the DVD anyway?)

  4. I basically use 2 aps:

    The free utility WireTap by Andrew Welch. (Ambrosia Software, Inc.) will record any sound as .aiff files.

    Felt Tip Sound Studio 2.1 (bundled with my iBook) will slice the long .aiff file into individual songs.

    iTunes will convert aiff files into something you can use on your iPod.

    I guess this is legal as long you don't use it to make money and for public performance.

    I have Audio Detour from rogue amoeba. It was cheap (I think $15 US dollars as a download, I can't recall). It's a neat ap that controls the sound of all the aps that play sound. So basically you can have the DVD player turned way up, Wire Tap catching the sound stream, and not worry about system, finder, other software sounds ending up in the recording.

    Hmmm. I thought the CD is more complete since the DVD didn't have "Celebrate Me Home" which happens to be my favorite. ;)

    If you don't mind spending a few $bucks try DVDxDV.

    It's also a useful app for video editing. I've been using that to author all my movies from my DVD camera.

    I tried recording songs off a concert DVD using Wiretap.. it worked ok but when I listened closely the songs didn't come off as too clear. I ended up just deleting everything. Do you think they weren't clear because of Wiretap or because I converted the .aiff files into mp3s? Let me know what happens, maybe I'll redo my DVD recording too! :)
