extracting audio from .flv files

Post by re:dream » Sun Jul 28, 2013 11:57 am

I have an flv file, downloaded from Youtube. I want to extract the audio.

My VLC player doesn't do it. I have tried to use the VLC player's convert/save feature but nothing happens.

How do I extract audio? Any advice would be appreciated.

Why don't you just record the audio directly, as it plays on YouTube?

That's an idea. I would have to figure out how to do the internal audio routing.

Anyway, I found something called FLV converter which did the job well

I know a step by step guide that supports extracting audio files from various kinds of video formats like MP4, AVI, FLV, MOV, WMV, MKV, etc and then save the extracted audio file into MP3, WAV, AAV, M4A, etc at: http://www.faasoft.com/articles/extract ... v-wmv.html

Hope it will help you too.

Plenty of browser extensions allow you to download .mp4 files from YouTube, which Live plays perfectly fine. This is the one I use in Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... d-youtube/

Of course, YouTube's audio quality is often not very good, but it's a great source for background sounds, unusual sample sources, or for just having fun.
Please vote! Live 10's "multi" clip editing should allow selection+editing of multiple clips in one action:

Do it with this online converter.

http://audio.online-convert.com/convert-to-mp3

Choose Audio Converter, then upload your audio/video and choose the audio bitrate e.g. 128, 192 or 320 kbps. Wait until the converted file is ready to download.

Thats it.
