Extracting audio from video

I usually download music videoclips from Youtube, and I convert them to MP3 audio files. This is how I do it:

  • I download the video files from Youtube with a couple of Firefox extensions: “Flash Video Downloader” or “Youtube video and audio downloader”.
  • Once you have it in your computer as a MP4, MOV or whatever format, you can extract the audio with VLC.
  • Open VLC.
  • Go to Media → Convert/Save
  • Add the file you want to convert
  • Select Convert/Save → Convert
  • Select the audio profile you want (MP3 or Ogg, as you wish)
  • Specify a destination file.

Click “Convert” and enjoy :)
