I'm trying to rip some DVDs to my external HD so I can set up a "Netflix" on my home server and play them on my Samsung TV using an app called Plex.
Anyway... Every time I rip my DVDs, I'm getting the wrong audio track. EVERY TIME. If a DVD only has 2 audio tracks, it seems to pull in the Spanish audio. If it has a commentary track, it seems to only pull in the commentary track. All I want is the standard English track! I saw a post that said if it comes up with "DEF:  English AC3 2ch" that you have to actually select the " English AC3 2ch" from the list. But I've tried selecting all 4 tracks on 4 respective passes and still I'm only getting the commentary track. Here's the super-funky thing; when I switch the audio tracks in the preview, it plays the correct track. This is how I know I'm selecting the standard English track and not the commentary track. It's just not converting the proper audio track.
Anyone know what's up with this? Or if there's another app that will extract the movie with decent quality?

I'm not clear on your source. If these are commercial dvd discs, what are you using for decryption? If they are already ripped to the hard drive, they should be decrypted already. Vob2Mpg can't decrypt anything by itself. Have you tried both Vobset and IFO mode?
If your Plex app can handle mpeg2 in an mkv file, try using MakeMKV. It will simply rewrap the audio, video and subtitles and won't re-encode the dvds, so it is quick to use. MakeMKV can decrypt dvds by itself.
RIPping is the process of copying the data from the DVD. And ALL of the data is typically copied from the DVD.
Typical work order is to RIP the DVD to your HDD. Then process into your desired format.
Try using a different tool? What's your desired final format?
Depending on your storage space and media tools, leave the discs untouched or simply remove all the extras.Google is your Friend
They are commercial DVDs. They rip fine. However, Plex won't play menus and stuff so all I need is to rip the DVD to an MPG file. Every time I rip it (using VOB2MPG), the audio track is not the English track. I'm just trying to figure out how to rip a DVD to an MPG and be able to choose 1 specific audio track to play in the resulting MPG.
BTW, I tried the instructions here but still I couldn't get the proper audio track: http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/310403-2-audio-streams-converting-VOB-2-MPG
Really? Jesus Christ, I'm sorry my semantics are wrong. /rolleyes
I figured it out on my own.
It helps to know the proper terms for what you are trying to do. If you are trying learn a process, you should at least know/learn the correct terms. You will get a better answer/response to your questions.
I've not used vob2mpg and you didn't reply to any of my previous questions.
Glad you figured it out on your own.Google is your Friend
