can convert vcd to audio? : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

can i convert the MV in vcd to audio file? so that i can play it using cd player? i just want the audio, not the picture. can this be done?

First what i do is convert or what not the file to MPEG-1

Then under tmpgenc, go to mpeg tools, and "split" the file, it will seperate the video and the audio, run it under winamp to convert to audio cd compatible WAV file, i suggest slicing it into chapters before you seperate, so that way you dont have to sit through 60 minutes or so to hear what you want to hear

Then make a plain AUDIO CD out of the wav's

and...... TA DA !

I was going to edit the sound track in a Karaoke VCD. Using VCDGear 3.5 to convert the *.dat to *.mpeg, then TMPEnc 2.59 to Demux the mpeg file, I eventually got the *.m1v and *.mpa files. The mpa is the audio file. However, Steinberg WaveLab 3.0 won’t touch it. Cool Edit 2000 did load it up. But the waveform was only a straight line on the screen and there was only noise when I played the loaded file. Renaming the file to mp2 or reloading after saving with a header didn't make any difference.

The same audio file played beautifully with Window Media player 7.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as to how to edit this mpa file and then Mux it back to a mpeg file to be burned as a VCD. Thank you.

well, the .dat files are plain MPEG-1 files, though. I just used a common Video-Editor-Software and extracted the Audio to a .WAv file. WinOnCd can detect and seperate different tracks so that's not a problem.
