    Question DVD to MPG or AVI?

    I've been searching for an hour, and I can't find an answer, so I'm swallowing my newbie pride...I am seriously strapped for time, so your help with the quickest, easiest, and dirtiest way to do this would be SO APPRECIATED (need to preserve Dolby 5.1).

    I want to take a single 28 second clip out of a DVD and convert it to MPG or AVI so I can put it into a film with Adobe Premiere, and open it with Windows Media Player in Dolby 5.1.

    I used DVD Decrypter in IFO mode and took the single PGC I needed and ripped it to its own directory, so now I've got the VIDEO and AUDIO folders and the appropriate VOB, BUP, and IFO files.

    One place said DVD Decrypter could do that coversion to AVI or MPG but I have a sneaking suspicion that's wrong.

    I know there's a way to use DIVX/Xvid stuff and codecs and all that. I could learn, but I have ZERO time.

    I have, and am at least minimally acquainted with DVDDecrypter, DVDFabDecrypter, VOBBlanker, PGCEdit, IFOEdit, and of course DVDShrink.

    Can I pull this off with these programs? If not, what is the easiest way to do this, and what (free) sofware do I need, and how do I use it?

    THANK YOU!

    that's incorrect

    DVD (VOBs) are already mpg, just rename the extention.

    for mpeg4 conversion, use AutoGK
