    Can you download a portion of a DVD

      Back to the sports video.   I have a dvd of my childs game.  I want to get some highlights off the dvd without downloading the whole dvd.

      Can I? How?  Thanks

          There are some ripping programs, that might allow you to extract just portions, but they will require work. There are some links to ripping software in this ARTICLE. I have no direct recs. As I have both a DVD player and an A-D bridge, I would just play the DVD, and cue it up, then Capture that portion. I think that a program along the lines of "VideoReDo" might be useful. Others will likely have some direct program recs. for you.

           

          If one does not have an A-D bridge, then it is probably just easier to Import the VOB's that contain the footage (remember, a VOB can only hold ~ 1GB of material, so the enclosed MPEG files might span more than one VOB. Then, Trim that material in the Capture Project, Export/Share from that Project, and Delete all of the Capture Project and its Assets.

           

          Since you are dealing with MPEG-2 materials, my first choice for that Export would be something like the Lagarith Lossless CODEC, or to DV-AVI.

           

          Good luck,
