Default Demuxing of audio tracks.

What is Demuxing? And why do you have to demux audio?

When Gnot calls up DVD2AVI to demux the audio tracks, from what I understand is that it does something like extracting a ac3 file from the VOBs and there seems to be another mp3 file created. What is that and what is it for?

Lastly when you're done with all the cropping, bitrate settings and proper to encode again, it seems that another encoding takes place again (with the program besweet, that's as far as I can understand). Why is there so much demuxing/encoding/transcoding going on and what is that for?

The ac3 is the full audio of what's on the dvd. As I'm sure you've noticed this is quite large. When you're done with all your settings, BeSweet comes up and encodes the .ac3 to an .mp3. Why would you do this? For the same reason you encode your .vobs to .avi
