Ripping sound from
.avi video file to
.mp3? (on Windows)
What software (free) can do the task ?
I've used Avidemux and find it intuitive. It's free, cross platform.
Main page is here:
Not free, unfortunately, but very powerful. An alternative, free solution can be found here: How to convert the audio in a video to WAV (or MP3)
If you don't mind using command line, have a try at ffmpeg with libmp3lame enabled. The command should be:
ffmpeg -i inputvideo.avi -vn -acodec mp3 outputaudio.mp3
You can use the free version of Goldwave, version 4 (probably 4.26 something) "We don't need no stinking tutorials ..." ;) Because it's just loading the avi, and saving as MP3. By default, it's set at 128kbps, but you can change that.
It's exactly like saving a doc file as text.
