I’m in the process of learning Spanish and wanted to have something in Spanish to listen to.
I figured I’d try listening to the Spanish tracks from some of my DVDs for this purpose. The only one I have that actually has a Spanish audio track is Pulp Fiction and my Simpson’s DVDs.
To rip Pulp Fiction, I used the following command:
mplayer -alang es -vc dummy -vo null -ao pcm:fast -af resample=44100:0:0 -ao pcm:file=pf.18.wav -chapter 18-18 dvd://
This rips chapter 18. I repeated this for chapter 01 through 27. Note that you have to replace that number in 3 places in the command each time. I prefer to have it broken up by chapter for skipping-around convenience, but if you want it all in one file, leave off -chapter.
If you want to rip from a different language, change what you pass to -alang, or remove -alang for the default language.
You can then encode them with LAME if you’d like.
By the way, my chapter 16 is screwed up on my Pulp Fiction disc and won’t rip. If you have this DVD and don’t mind ripping the Spanish audio from that chapter for me, let me know. It’s the “Where’s my watch?” chapter.
