Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My sister seems to time her phone calls with some requests for technical support. The below is what she just asked:

I have an 18 min DVD of a choir concert - what I want to do is to extract audio snippets of it to play over a photo slideshow and out it on youtube.

Additional Info

  • Requires the simplest of solutions. (The less hops between packages the better)
  • Solution needs to be free.
  • Windows 7

I usually concoct fairly elaborate solutions for my sister which end up causing her too many issues and she gives up. I am hoping that a superuser out there might be able to provide a more optimal solution to one I might have.

1 Answer 1

Have a look at XmediaRecode for ripping the DVD to just audio, (select custom output and then audio only)

Not sure about creating a slide show, maybe this or use Windows Movie Maker
