Default Extracting DVD Menus

This is going to be a tricky subject, but I can't help myself.

I'm working on trying to extract menus from DVDs but I'm having difficulty figuring out how. Some of the work that went on these discs are just too darn beautiful to not have in some way shape or form. Most of the software I use don't even identify the menus even though file wise they are there.

Has anyone ever figured out how one can extract them?

I doubt it, unfortunately.

Unless you know how to code/program menus manually, I don't think it's something that can be conveniently extracted and reused in other projects by any old layperson.

It's not so much a wish to re-use them for other DVD projects, but more so to have the movie files that play during the menu. I'm not interested in the button layout, programing or any of that technical jargon. Just those movies that play under it.

Like this for example.


That is literally just the video that plays in the background. That's all that I'm after.

James Bond Ultimate Edition - Licence To Kill - DVD Menu - YouTube

Animated menus would typically be contained within a VOB (like every other video component on a DVD), so you could perhaps rip it, but that topic is a little controversial, so I'll say no more about it lest I arouse the wrath of the mods.

Bear in mind that the entire menu is a video, so you wouldn't be able to remove or manipulate individual components/floating objects from the menu if that is what you were wondering.

It's quite simple to back-up the menu videos, but like SillyG posted, everything you see in that Bond menu will be part of it, the interface isn't an overlay.

Depending on the software used, you may have to shorten the time of the recognized videos, especially if it ignores anything shorter than a minute.
