What is Audio Extraction?
Audio Extraction (DAE) is a more formal phrase applied
to the ripping of audio CDs. Ripping
is distinct from simple file copying, in which the source audio/video
is not formatted for ease of use in a computer file system. For
example, the hierarchy of files making up the audio/video
data on a DVD-Video disc can be encoded
into a single MPEG file. In addition, the copied
data are often compressed with appropriate codecs. Ripping is often
used to shift formats, and to edit, duplicate or back up media content.
Media files released on the Internet may describe
the source of the rip in their names, e.g. DVD-Rip.
Audio extraction is very handy when
you want to get a song out of music videos or live performance DVDs.
