PS2 FMV Ripping Guide

Here’s another guide by me to extract FMV from a PS2 Disc but first you must already have this tools :

And as an alternative way, i’ve uploaded the required tools to extract PS2 FMV, you can download it from here (it contains the above tools) if you want the easiest way
Optional Tools (not required if you dont want it) :

  • PSSPlayer : tool to play a pss movie (it can be used to play extracted PS2 FMV from FMVTool if you don’t want to create AVI Container / Converting it first)
  • VisualBasic Runtime (most of you already has this visualbasic runtime installed on your system so there’s no need to worry about it ;) )
  • Lame Encoder

Step to rip ps2 fmv :

  1. Insert your PS2 Disc into your DVD Rom drive and run FMVTool
  2. Configure FMVTool to use your DVD Rom drive and choose Start Searching
  3. After finished searching for fmv stream choose to extract it into directory of your choice (note: create the directory first)
  4. After extracting the fmv, try playing the extracted files using your favorite media player. And if you didnt hear any sound from it continue to the next step. But if the extracted movie can be played correctly (e.g there’s sound when playing the extracted files then you can choose to skip the next step ;) )
  5. Open PSSDemux and drag n drop the extracted files (FMV) into PSSDemux window
  6. Open VirtualDubMod and choose to open the Demuxed (.m2v format) files (not the extracted files from FMVTool) and select Stream -> Stream List and add the wav audio from the Demuxed files
  7. Select Video -> Compression and choose Divx / Xvid codec as the video encoder (or your favorite video codec)
  8. Finally choose to save the video files and you’re finished ;)

Note: For more smaller file size you can use Lame MP3 Encoder to encode the audio files instead of using standard WAV file
