Okay, so audio conversion and DVD question.

Recommended Posts

Right, so I've got this music album that's in OGG format. iTunes won't read the format, so therefore, I can't listen to it in iTunes or transfer it to my iPod. Any good conversion programs to convert it to MP3 out there? Okay, that was the easy question.

I was going through my hard drive sorting and deleting stuff the other day (how I found that music album, too), and I came across this unmarked folder with two folders in it, an empty AUDIO_TS and a five gigabyte VIDEO_TS. I'm thinking it's a DVD I've ripped at one time, because I've got DVDShrink installed. But how can I convert the files to a video format or at least view what it is so I can decide if I want to keep it or ditch it?

Well... the best way to do it would probably be to convert from OGG to WAV (Winamp can do this automatically with the waveout output plugin, which is included) and then WAV to MP3. You WILL lose quality but hopefully not too much.

You should be able to right click the VIDEO_TS file and pick "Open with..." then load up your usual DVD software and it should run fine. Converting it is a much more painful story, and I'm not the one to help you with that. :-P

And if you can't do that, you may be able to just burn the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS to a DVD and watch it like that.
