Hallo
I used ffmpeg to set soundtrack from dvd, but the quality is really poor:

/usr/src/ffmpeg/ffmpeg/ffmpeg -i /misc/ddd/VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_0.VOB -ab 192
-vn /tmp/file.mp3

The quality depends on output format, ie. after grabbing to *.wav
quality was good.

Looks like the problem is with pm3 codec. I'm using liblame:
[root]# rpm -qa | grep lame
lame-3.96.1-1


[root]# ldd /usr/src/ffmpeg/ffmpeg/ffmpeg
