Hi, Please can anyone tell me how to extract the audio from a video file?
I have AVS video converter which i thought would have the option of doing it but it doesn't and i have Nero 9, i thought this would do it too but i cant find that option?
Thank you in advance!

I've used the free version of AoA Audio Extractor in the past which limits you to 6 files at a time (It may also be time limited) click here

Try the free AoA Audio Extractor click here. Instructions at click here.

Another way is to run the video file & record the sound with the free Audacity click here. G

Hi, thank you for your answers! Im trying Audacity and when i press record whilst the video is playing in the backgrounds it records any movements/noises i do too. Please can anyone tell me if there is a way of gettting it to just record the audio from the file/video?

I think that's because you're recording via the mic. Try recording via 'What U Hear' if your soundcard has this feature. G

Hi Crossbow7, im afraid 'mic' is my only option.

Right click your sound options (loudspeaker by the date/time). Find your record options and turn Mic off.

But this is not the best way to extract sound.
Try the video editor solutions above, open your vid file and look for Export or Audio or Demux options.

Another simple editor that can do this is MPEG Streamclip. Open your file. Select File/Export Audio or Demux/AC3.

I just demuxed a 1GB VOB in about 2-3 mins.

Readme says it needs Quicktime Alternative 1.81

If it's Vista/Win7 you may have to follow this click here.

If XP, Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Volume tab > Advanced > Options > Properties > select Recording > Place a tick next to "What U Hear" if available > OK. G
