If you’ve ever downloaded Youtube videos, you typically end up with either FLV or MP4 files. These files will usually open up in a movie player so you can watch them, but what if you simply want to listen to the sound tracks of these videos? It’s very easy to rip sound tracks of most video files, and I’ve found that Free Audio Extractor is a simple and fast way to do this.
Here’s what the author, Giksoft, says about this free product.
Free Audio Extractor allows you to extract/convert entire or parts of your FLV, MP4, AVI, WMV, ASF, MOV, MP3, WMA, M4A, AAC, WAV, MP2 files. Save to Mp3, Wma, Ogg, Flac… try it! it’s easy and it’s free!
To add files for conversion, you need to click the big plus sign and choose one or more files. Then choose the Save as MP3button. There is a pull-down next to the Save button that will allow you to save as WMA, OGG, FLAC or WAV, if you don’t want MP3 files.
Once it starts converting, you’ll find that it’s very fast. It seemed to take less than ten seconds for most 5 to 10 minute videos. Once they’re all done, you can click on My Saved filesto find all of the MP3s that you’ve just created.
Techie Buzz Verdict:
The Giksoft team has wisely chosen to give us a product that does a single job and does it extremely well. There may be larger programs that do this, but generally, you’ll have way too many options and a bit of a learning curve before you get it right. Free Audio Extractor helps you get it right, the first time and every time.
