Extract audio from a section of Blu-ray movie for use in Pro Tools 9

“What video formats are acceptable in Pro Tools 8 LE? And how do I go about converting all my .wmv files? I would need to extract a section of a Blu-Ray movie. The only item I'm interested is the audio. I would need to have a 5.1 PCM WAV tracks of that section. I would need to play the sound, only the sound, in a ProTools session. Can I do that with Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper? Or I would need another soft?”
