i use AVS4YOU, which has a suite of apps for converting/editing audio/video/text files―http://www.avs4you.com/index.aspx...

of course it is not free, but there is a 'lifetime' license available for less than 60 USD―caveat: for ONE PC only

AVS Audio Editor has an option to extract the audio from videos (including VOB files)

MP4 is a video format and yes, you will probably need to get a program to convert from one to the other.https://www.udemy.com/   This page http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/how-to-convert-dvds-to-mp4-files-in-windows-or-mac-os-x/3/ lists a few.

You wont be able to extract the entire audio out of a DVD
Please what type of system Laptop or desktop?
For Desktop with speakers
Play the DVD and record the audio using Audacity ( what you hear ) in the speakers ( steremix) alternative is mp3mymp3 which is simple and doesn't require any setting up I use both.
http://www.mp3mymp3.com/

The steps
First enable stereo mix, open your audio recording r/click on the speaker icon and click on recording devices then right click an empty space anywhere and enable all of them This will enable Audacity to record what you hear in your speakers.
stereomixNow download Audacity
http://www.audacityteam.org/download/
and you will also need the lame.dll in order to convert the recording to mp3 just install it no need to do anything with it.

Then setup audacity in the preferences to use stereo 2 speakers. Click on Edit then preferences
Use these
Audacity preferencesAudacity includes the manual when you start it
Video maybe simpler look on the right for more.
