first ever DVD-Audio ripper

That's right. This supposedly unrippable audio format, which delivers high-resolution (24/96) lossless multichannel audio, can now be ripped digitally to a hard drive. The process is crude and inelegant, but hey, that's how it was in the early days of DVD-ripping.

Thread in Doom9's forums

Quote:
I just uploaded to RareWares a tool that enables WinDVD owners to rip full quality DVD-Audio tracks encrypted with CPPM.

It does so by launching/patching WinDVD 5/6/7 and redirecting the stream to disk instead of the sound card after decryption.
Announcement & discussion on Hydrogenaudio forums

Find the necessary tools at the bottom of this page over at RareWares.

I know that this isn't really useful for getting a source for TTD, but I figured that some people here might be interested in backing up DVD-As to their hard drive. This is just pretty big news.

Wow. That was fast; it's gone now.

...and it's gone

I got a phone call from a big local lawyer office (no fake, I checked the caller ID and the phone number really belongs to a lawyer office). They have been hired to make me stop distributing the DVD-A tools. It was a reasonably big talk, but I can summarize it with

They: we are giving you two choices, either you remove all references to those tools from your site now, or we'll have to take you to court.

Me: I'm already removing!

They: Thank-you for your cooperation.


Oh, well. It's been fun. I'm amazed at how well it spread in these two days (!), and I'm sure from now on you'll be able to find those tools in countless mirrors, p2p and the like.

Shine on!

R.
Interestingly, the guy who was hosting the tools lives in Brazil and he was hosting them on a Brazilian server. Brazil doesn't have the DMCA or similar IP laws that the U.S. has, yet no matter where you are in the world, money and lawyers will usually win the day.

Peace.

Thanks for noticing.
It's finally coming to an end... now I can live off the overtime for a while.

Now I'll have to relearn all the SBE stuff when I start archiving again.

There are actually three tools. DVDARipper.exe rips the AUDIO_TS folder to your hard drive for burning or mounting an unencrypted copy. Then PPCMRipper.exe is used with WinDVD to transcode the Packed PCM (aka MLP, a lossless multichannel format) to WAV. The third tool, DVDAExplorer_a7.exe is basically what the name says, some kind of information/explorer program.

And I'm sure there were some of us who thought to download them before the inevitable cease-&-desist.

As promised:

Password is "thetradersden" without the quotes. Sorry for the password. There's a reason for it.

I know nothing about how it works, but I'm told you must have WinDVD ver 5, 6, or 7 installed (and maybe running?).


Credit goes to a friend on another board...
