I am trying to extract a really cool background music track from a TV show ( I have the video file). How do I go about doing that? Can it be done?

 

Please help!

There are plenty of free audio extractors but Audacity is probably the best known one.

It's incredible that programs exist which can do this sort of thing, a truly amazingly complex task when you think about it. There are ways in which speaking and ambient sounds can be removed to leave only the background music, but they often rely on having two files to start with firstly the full audio and secondly the speaking and ambient sounds, then a program can compare the two, subtract the speech from the full track to leave the background music. If all you have is the full track it will be trickier, but I think methods do exist. This really is one of the things where you can see that the method of doing it has been designed by some kind of genius. removing speech to get out a background music track would have been inconceivable even a decade ago.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

Can someone walk me through the process of doing this? I am not familiar with audio software.
