Easiest way to extract audio from video file

Many times we want to extract the audio from a particular video but do not have a clue on how to do it. While there are some expensive tools available in the market that provide this functionality, they are not exactly very easy to use and user-friendly. Recently I came across this tool called Movavi video converter that makes this task so easy. Plus it is very feature rich and let you do much more.

The Movavi video converter lets you extract audio from video easily. All you have to do is download the software from the official site. The installation process is simple and painless. It only took me a couple of minutes. You can extract video from AVI, MP4, MKV, FLV, 3GP, MPEG, MOV etc and store them in MP3, FLAC, WAV, WMA audio formats.

Start the app and click on the Add Video button to add video files to the list. You can add one or many videos files since the software supports batch file conversion. Now since we want the extract only the audio part, select MP3 or any other audio file codec from “Convert To” drop down box. Audio profiles allow you to select bitrate as well which determine the quality of the audio. As a rule of thumb, higher the bitrate, bigger the file size.

The Movavi video converter has some editing capabilities too. For instance, if you wish to extract only a part of audio from the video, you can choose the fragment by moving the markers in the preview window. This way, only the marked part is converted.

Now, specify the destination folder where you want the audio files to outputted. If you do not specify one, default folder will be used. Now that we have specified all the settings, you can press the “Convert” button to commence the conversion process. Since the Movavi video converter makes use of advanced algorithms, it should not take a lot of time to encode the files. Once the encoding is done, a folder containing the audio files will open.

The Movavi video converter is capable of doing much more than just extracting audio though. It is a full featured video, image converter that also does the job of DVD ripper. You can convert between myriad video formats and rip DVD files to simple video files that can be played on any media device.
