How to extract audio using Audio Video Converter?

Audio Video ConverterHave you ever wanted to save a video because it had great sound effects or music in it. And what a waste of space it is because you really only wanted the audio part of the video and not the entire movie.

Well now it is so easy to separate the audio from the video by extracting the audio only from a video clip. In other words you can Convert AVI, MPEG, MPG, DAT, FLV, WMV/ASF, MOV, MP4, 3GP to aac, ac3, amr_nb, amr_wb, mmf, mp2, mp3, mpc, ogg, wav, wma audio formats. And when you go and play the file you will only hear the audio and not see the video.

There are a huge amount of Audio Video Converter available to extract audio files from a video, however I choose to use AVS as it extracts audio from almost any video format to save as aac, ac3, amr_nb, amr_wb, mmf, mp2, mp3, mpc, ogg, wav, wma audio formats.

Step 2: select your input video file

To select a video you would like to convert hit the Browse... button next to the Input File Name field. In the opened Windows Explorer window browse for the necessary video file:

Quite often DVDs and even .avi files contain several audio tracks. That's why you should select the necessary one prior to extraction.
