Hello Whiz Kids,

I have a video file (DVDrip DivX) and would like to extract selected audio tracks and make them into mp3 files. Can this be done? Can it be done reasonably simply? What software (free) would be required?

Any guidance on this subject would be appreciated.

Regards

Constantine

The only thing I could think of, would be to play the video, and record the audio using a program like Audacity.

Some useful Audacity links:

Hello all, a newbie here!

I`m looking forward to receiving help and advice from you all as well as passing on my knowledge :thumbsup:

Constantine>> Can you be more precise in what format video being played e.g DVD, DiVX, MPG etc? There are various tools out there, usually free which you can use to record the audio from the video. Let me know and hopefully be able to post some links!
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

I have Sonar 5 producer edition, which when you open a video file to edit, extracts the audio to a seperate track. not sure if you can do this with dvds, but definatly works with avi, which is all I ever use. unfortunatly, I beleive the software still costs around $600 us.

to record the sound manually, try Total Recorder. It is better than other sound recorders.

to extract or convert, i use Xilisoft Video to Audio Converter or Super from www.erightsoft.com

p/s:
if the movie is too big, split it to the part you want before you extract its audio.

google for video splitter. plenty of them.
my personal choice is Easy Video Splitter
