    I am bumping this thread because I didn't want to start a new one.

    Sooo... anyone know how to convert a DVD into a file format that I can import into a PowerPoint presentation? Specifically, if I'm using a mac and don't want to pay for video editing/conversion software. I tried using some freeware I downloaded (Squared 5), but it kept on telling me I need to buy QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component or something.

    Technologically clueless here. Thanks.

    Whenever I start seeing shit like this I panic and just go apeshit pushing buttons trying to fix it. System restore has become a very good friend of mine.

    I actually keep my system drive for my editing system on a removable drive. I built a completely clean system drive from scratch, installed everything, set every thing as I wanted, and then cloned it. Pulled the clean drive out and put the clone in it's place. Whenever anything gets even slightly wonky, I just wipe it and clone the clean drive again. Saves a ton of time in the long run.

    It's even easier in Vista...Complete System Backup is one of the only useful features of Vista, but it makes it SO easy to keep a clean clone.

    I don't know jack about Macs, but the only piece of software I know of to do this is Cinematize from Miraizon. I use the Windows version every day, but it's $130. There's a limited version, but I think it's still like $50.

    You could always do the end run and just play the DVD out of a standard DVD player into a capture device. But if you don't already have a capture device, it'll cost you more than $50 anyway. If you have a DV camcorder, there's sometimes a way to feed analog video INTO it and use it as a capture device. Usually it's the same as the video out- it just senses the input signal and reverses itself. Then it converts it to digital and spits it down the firewire so you can do what you want with it.

    If you don't want to spend money and you don't have a capture device, my only advice is to find a friend who knows what they are doing. If you lived next door to me and knocked on my door with this question, I could have done it faster than it took to write this.

    EDIT- By the way, Cinematize won't extract encrypted DVDs...if you're really just looking to rip movies, don't waste your money.

    Thank you explaining all this!

    I'm assuming that it's an unencrypted DVD because it's a piece of video art that was sent to my workplace by the artist. I need to figure out a way to incorporate it somehow into a presentation for a jury who are going to decide on what goes into an exhibit we're organizing. But I work for a nonprofit and we're cheap so new software of any sort isn't in the budget right now, sadly.

    Maybe I'll have to call in a neighborly favor

    People don't seem to understand that a DVD is not a computer file. You can put it into a computer, and the computer will tell you that there are files on it. But it's kind of a dead end for digital video. Once you convert it into a DVD, it's nearly impossible to get it back out. I've never seen anything but Cinematize that will do it properly, which is why it's expensive, I guess. If they ever get any competition, the price will come down.

    There are plenty of programs out there that will rip DVDs into video files/formats for other use....for both MAC and PC, but you just gotta google around for one that works for you...some are free, some are trials, some u gotta buy. Since I'm on a PC, i know tons of ways to do it, you could rip the DVD to vob files then use SUPER to convert to avi or mov or whatever, or use magic dvd ripper....you might be able to do it in quicktime, but again, you need the mpeg decoder. Maybe try finding a friend with a PC and try a trial run of magic dvd ripper then copy the file to your mac or something...i dunno

    What exactly do you mean? Once video is burned/converted and made to be on a DVD, it's in mpeg2 video format but in a VOB shell.....you can use programs that will rip the DVD files back onto your drive, then you can demux the vob files back to mpeg2 files using other programs...so I don't know what you mean by putting video on a DVD, you can never get it back, because essentially all we're talking about is once a video file is on DVD, it's mpeg2, there's no converting back to anything, but you can still access the mpeg2 if you needed to and convert that to something else, using Super or some other program.

    Courtney, I don't know much about PowerPoint. Are you wanting to play the file through PowerPoint, will it do that? Or you just wanna play a file along with what you're doing?

    One place you can look is download.com. They have a lot of freeware and trial versions of many programs. I also have a few I can tell you about, but I need to know the answers to the questions I asked.

    I am trying to convert a DVD into a file format such as avi or quicktime so that I can have the video play as an actual slide in the PowerPoint presentation. I know how to import the video to PowerPoint once it's in one of the supported formats, but I just don't know how to convert a DVD to an avi file or other supported format.

    I mean that my clients put the DVD in their computer and think they can just copy the VIDEO_TS file onto another disc and they've got another copy. Or they call asking me which file to post on their website, or which one "is the video". I mean, sometimes I give people DVDs with dozens or hundreds of files- I made it and even I don't know which is which. That's what the authoring software is for.

    I'm just saying it's not like handing someone an AVI or MOV or WMV file. Anybody can figure out what to do with that. I never said you "can never get it back"...I just got done telling someone which software would do the whole job! But look at your response..rip it using "programs", then demux it using "other programs". That's not really helpful to someone who is "technologically clueless". Half my clients pop the DVD proofs into their 1994 Dell CD-Rom and then complain than the disc is "broken". I started posting proofs in Flash, and even that causes problems. Clients call me up and say they just see a red X. Someone who doesn't have Flash Player installed is not going to have the tools or knowledge to convert a DVD to Quicktime.

    Cinematize is great- you feed it an unencrypted DVD, and it will give it back to you in any format you want as long as the codec is installed on your computer. You can set in and out points too. It's exactly what Courtney needs, but she can't afford it. If someone else can suggest a cheaper alternative for her- awesome. Talking over her head just because you feel the need to argue with me about everything isn't helpful.

    I did learn something though- I fed a VOB file directly into Sorenson Squeeze, and converted it directly to a WMV. I really didn't think Squeeze would recognize it as a file type. However, the end product had no sound, took a LONG time, and the second time I tried, it crashed. So, still useless. Cinematize is the way to go if you can afford it.

    Although that first one seems like a better bet. The second one only goes to "iPhone video format". I'm not sure what that is, but the other one will go straight to Quicktime, which is what she needs.

    You aren't giving yourself enough credit. Or you're giving my clients too much.

    EDIT...though, what method do you use? Maybe YOU could help Courtney.

    I use Cinematize because it's does the job, does it quickly, does it perfectly. I have all the pro video tools, so I don't go looking for the cheap solutions. So even though I can handle almost any video task you throw at me, I'm probably not the guy to ask how to do it for free. I make my money in part through people's unwillingness to learn how to do simple tasks, so I'm not good at training others.

    I was complimented by, M sparks, my life is now complete. Also, fuck you. I'd rather you don't say anything than be condescending about it. Wasn't I on your ignore list anyway, how bout you just put me right back on there?

    I hate it when people paste all over the fucking board about who's on their ignore lists, and then fucking respond to posts they make. Stand by your convictions, fucking pussies.

    YEssssss thank you this worked!

    I used MacTheRipper to get the disc into a VOB file on my desktop, and then used AppleMacSoft Video Converter to convert it to quicktime. And then I put them into my PowerPoint, and now my boss will be happy. Woooooo yay task complete.

    I <3 you guys.
