You probably don't want to reencode the video (a slow and lossy process), so try:

ffmpeg -i [input_file] -vcodec copy -an [output_file]

(n.b. some Linux distributions now come with the avconv fork of ffmpeg)

I love this command line. :) –  Chandra Nakka Sep 3 at 4:24
avconv -i [input_file] -vcodec copy -an [output_file]

If you cannot install ffmpeg because of existing of avconv try that .
