Re: rippimng audio from dvd

I might be wrong, but I think that is as "lossless" as you will get it... since ac3 is already a compressed audio.

Re: rippimng audio from dvd

It is my understanding that AC3 is lossy and is not allowed in the lineage of anything in the audio bit torrent downloads forum.

It is allowed on DVDs in the video bit torrent downloads forum.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong here.

moving to technobabble.

All digital video codecs use lossy audio compression schemes, and therefore audio extracted from an MPEG video or DVD is not permitted for seeding here. The exception to this rule is that DVDs which have been authored with uncompressed LPCM audio are allowed to have the audio stream extracted, compressed to a lossless format, and seeded. This rule does not apply to audio taken from VHS sources, which is permitted with the caveat that no cleaner or higher fidelity version circulates. Audio from VCD and SVCD sources is explicitly prohibited as it uses MPEG layer 2 compression, a less complex form of the shunned mp3 codec. Note that ac3 Dolby Digital audio is also lossy in comparison to the original uncompressed version, and is likewise prohibited for audio-only seeding at The Traders Den .

Re: rippimng audio from dvd

maybe you should put in a few minutes of research and check the FAQ's before even posing such a question

you could start where evenreven posted up above which I believe is in the audio bit torrent seeding policy section, in fact you might just read through all of it and that way some other questions you have might be answered...

I didn't mean to sound harsh, Pepper. Just, what shall we say... To the point!

And that is indeed the Audio policy section.

Hey,no worries i never thought you were being harsh at all.Its because ( and this is obvious) you have more knowledge about this kind of thing than me.So when you typed out your answer and i replied with "i only asked" it was a joke.Unfortunately even with the smiley someone else still didnt understand the joke.So no hard feelings towards you at all,maybe i shouldnt joke so much.. .

Re: ripping audio from dvd

He asked whether is was lossless. Not if he could post it. If he is not enquiring about posting it, why would he check the FAQ?

Remember Ferris Bueller's quote about turning coal to diamonds? Seems to apply to a Bulls fan who responded here. Didn't Ferris Bueller happen in Chicago?

Cameron, is that you?
