What is Audio Extraction?
Digital 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 singleMPEG 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.
