I found the way that you showed me to extract the audio from video opened videowave. I can capture the video from the DVD and play the file with Windows Media player from its file location. However, when I open the file captured from the DVD into videowave, there is no sound in the playback.

 

Do you know of any settings that I am overlooking?

That is not what you asked about...

 

Explain how you "...capture the video from the DVD"???

 

Also explain What this DVD consists of?

My way of capturing video to my computer using 2011 Creator Pro

 

1. Insert a video DVD in the computer's DVD drive.

 

2. Open the Roxio program.

 

3. In the Roxio Home, click the Video-Movies category, and then click Capture Video.

 

4. Using Media Import's Device drop-down list, select DVD.

 

5. Select the movie that is on the DVD (This is a DVD of my church's morning service that I recorded on an Emerson DVD recorder)

 

6. Browse to the folder for storage of the file.

 

7. Rename the file in the TEXT box.

 

8. Click the IMPORT NOW button.

 

 

 

The mpeg file can be viewed in the selected folder after completion.

Selecting the file in the folder and selecting PREVIEW the file will play with sound.

Opening the file in Videowave, the file will play but without sound.

 

 

 

This afternoon I have used Windows Live Movie Maker and added the same captured stored video file and burned a DVD. The DVD plays with sound with the DVD player in the Roxio program.

 

 

 

This is as complete as I know how to explain it.

 

There must be something missing in the Roxio program.

 

You are correct about the change in question. My original question was extracting the audio file directly from the DVD. This would be the most direct method of getting the audio file. This is possible with Creator 2010. Since I could not find a way to do that, the next idea that was presented to me was to extract the audio file after the captured video was imported into Videowave. However, if I import the captured video file into Videowave, the audio part does not give any sound.

 

The problem seems to be with the importing of the captured video file into Videowave. It seems that the audio component of the file is not imported.

ShermanNC,

 

I just used the 8 steps you listed above to extract a video from a DVD to an mpeg file, with Creator 2011 under Windows 7. Your steps worked fine.

 

The mpeg file was visible in the destination folder, and upon previewing it the audio was also fine.

 

Importing the captured video file into Videowave, the audio was fine.

When I added the file to Videowave and right-clicked on it there I got the pull-down that you see in Cdanteek's post [#3]. Extract Audio worked fine, and I was given a .WAV file in my destination directory.

 

This is the behaviour we all hoped to see, and it would suggest that Creator 2011 is working properly.

 

I wonder if there is something "different" about the audio format used in your DVD, perhaps?

On the DVD I experimented with there were two different videos, but Roxio Media Import showed them both as having AC3 stereo audio.

What sort of audio does Media Import show on your source DVD, please? I'm wondering if your Emerson recorder uses an audio encoder that Creator doesn't handle.

 

Regards,

Brendon

 

 

 

Edit: The extraction of the WAV direct from the DVD using Creator 2010 worked well, too, like you said. In C2010 Videowave will allow you to 'add' videos from the .IFO files on the DVD whereas Videowave in C2011 has been altered so 'add' won't look at IFOs. - Another bold step backwards.

Thank you Brendon ~ the AC3 was in my thinking too when I asked Sherman about the details ^_^

 

Also wonder what happens when we skip the capture and add it directly to VW?

 

As Sherman pointed out, you can skip the capture in C2010, but the ability to handle VOBs directly from the disc has been removed in C2011 - so he has to do the capture first.

I have been working on the method that you sent me. I have learned a lot about Creator 2010 in studying your methods but I still can not get sound with Creator 2011. I am wondering if I need to reinstall it. I too believe it has something to do with the encode/decode difference between the Emerson recorder and the Creator program. I show how the method that you outlined worked but the last part with the audio track did not work.

You still haven't answered this question. It seems to bear directly on your problem.

Yes that is something we need - it is possible that the Emerson is just one of those DVD Recorders that is a little difficult to work with... Not impossible but may need some extra steps ;)

 

I appreciate the screen captures that you used in your illustration of the method. Which screen capture program did you use? I am very interested in learning how it is done since I teach a beginners class in computers at the local YMCA.

I did not use any capture program. I inserted the DVD - opened VideoWave and chose Add Photo/Video.

Brendon and Jim

 

This is what is displayed on your work: Movie, Playtime, Selected Language: English (AC3 Stereo)

This is what is displayed on my work: Movie, Playtime, Selected Language: 1. unspecified (AC3 Stereo)

 

In setting up the Emerson DVD recorder, the language is set as English, subtitles as English.

 

I have no idea which codec code is used with the Emerson Recorder EWH100F.

 

The 2010 Creator does all that I need to do. It will extract from the DVD, IFO file. I can also capture as .mpg file.

 

The 2011 Creator Pro captures video but not audio.

 

Please send instructions on how to do a re-install. I have the disc for Creator 2011.

 

Thanks

Sherman
