New Xtractor extracts files from DVDs

HEURIS, makers of the MPEG Power Professional encoding software, are shipping a shipping a new product: the Xtractor, which can be used to extract or "rip" audio and video files from unencrypted DVDs. Users can demultiplex and extract elementary streams from MPEG 1 system streams, MPEG2 program streams, and MPEG 2 transport streams, including HDTV streams recorded with a DTV decoder card.

The Xtractor can also be used to extract DVD VR formatted MPEG streams recorded with Hitachi DZMV100 DVD camera or Panasonic's DMR-E20 line of DVD recorders. This lets you add new and different audio tracks to encoded video streams or simply to recover elementary streams from a finished DVD project.

The Xtractor is compatible with the traditional Mac operating system (there's no mention of a Mac OS X version). To use it, you select an output folder, drag and drop the MPEG file onto Xtractor, and the MPEG elementary streams are extracted and saved to the output directory.

The Xtractor is currently available directly from HEURIS for US$149. You can purchase it from the company's Web site.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
