a52decX converts an AC-3 file being used for the sound of DVD-Video into an AIFF file. I ported a52dec by Mr. Michel Lespinasse and Mr. Aaron Holtzman to Mac OS X, and added AIFF output function. mp3 output became possible by building in LAME.The source code is available.

What's New

Version 0.25 fixes the following:
  • The bug of the playback in Mac OS X 10.2.x was corrected.
  • The bug of the log window was corrected.
  • The beep to finish conversion was added.


MacOS X 10.1 or later

This program helped me a lot when getting audio out of DVDs in Leopard. The other options were using many programs that were flaky. Thanks a lot!

Works extremely well, one click to select directory and one click to start conversion. Like the previous guy said, it's perfect for important music from your DVDS into iTunes.

Basic, but does what it claims well. Great sound straight from VOB's. Perfect for adding the music from live concert DVD's into Itunes.
