Read DVD with Avidemux

Avidemux cannot directly open a DVD file. Instead a readable VOB file is needed to provide a format to access the DVD.

Operating system: MS Windows 7

Open a command prompt.

To create VOB for title 1, chapter 1, or in the DVD file its called VTS_01_0.vob, type

"E:\mplayer-svn-37386\mplayer.exe" dvd://1 -chapter 1 -dumpstream -dumpfile rippeddvd1_1.vob

To create VOB for title 2, or in the DVD file its called VTS_01_1.vob, type

"E:\mplayer-svn-37386\mplayer.exe" dvd://2 -dumpstream -dumpfile rippeddvd1_2.vob

To create VOB for chapter 2, or in the DVD file its called VTS_01_1.vob, type

"E:\mplayer-svn-37386\mplayer.exe" dvd://1 -chapter 2 -dumpstream -dumpfile rippeddvd1_2.vob

Alternatively if above still fails, use another application and convert the DVD to a readable format. E.g. Handbrake software.
