Is there a good free app that can convert /extract the audio stream from an MP4 video file into just an MP3 file? How about to do the same to a Flash file (FLV) to an MP3 file?

I just tried this out.

So far I agree that nothing tops this.

I've been looking for a program like this for a while and it does everything that I need it to do unlike others that do some of this or some of that but not everything.

Like OvenMaster, I too use Format Factory to convert everything to anything.

For the past few years you’ve pimped ‘XMedia Recode’ but I’ve ignored it because the site is written in… foreign… I don’t speak… foreign. I’ve looked for an English Tab/Button/Link to no avail.

But now that you have Satch’s stamp of (tentative) approval, I’m willing to check it out if there is an English version.

Is there an English version of this site you can post?

I was apprehensive when I saw the link you provided was an application/executable/.exe. I quickly got over that knowing you have endorsed it. However, when it came to the EULA, it is still written in… foreign (even though I always read those things and they always say the same thing… "No reverse engineering, redistributing, etc.”). I gotta know… do you trust it?

I’ll trust your reply!

Thanks Satch!

It's a friggin piece of proven German freeware not some rogue doctor from Ghana offering cheap protology exams or a Taliban church group knocking on your door propositioning you refinance terms. You're funny, but just know paranoia will destroy ya! I wouldn't recommend it if it was garbage or hackware. But heck, you better play it safe and VM it.

I tried said program. You know what happened when I hit "run" on the jobs? It crashed.

I'll try it again, but if it's a program that requires admin rights, I'm not using it.

Nope no admin rights required. It crashed, huh! That's new but I (like with so many apps) use the portable version and have never experienced a hiccup. Try it.

I have yet to hear back from Satch on the .exe link he posted, so I’ll save comment until then. In the meantime, this is sounding like a lot of hoops to jump through to replace a free conversion program that some of us already use.

OvenMaster already posted the link to Format Factory, a proven ‘FREE’ conversion utility that can strip video from an .mp4 or any video file to .mp3.

I am certain this utility you love is a good one. However, I don’t see changing for the sake of change as beneficial (considering the hoops).

When I hear from Satch, I will be more than glad to check it out. Until then, to the OP, The link OvenMaster posted will do exactly as you wish.

You're way too paranoid brb. :lol:

I just installed it. It does look pretty cool.

Gimme a couple days to play around with it and I'll report back!





Edit: Do YOU know what it was I agreed too in the EULA? :P

I'd be interested in your thoughts on this. If it's better than FF, especially.

On a side note on this, I found another converter that works surprisingly well: Winamp. I have to pro version, so I can just load a video format it supports and run it through the format converter.

Get yourself the latest and greatest, new version 3.1.2.0. Improved code, in both exe and portable seems to arrive about once every three weeks.

Its learning curve is a bit steeper. I tried to convert a .mp4 to .avi and lost audio.

As far as ‘Better’… I don’t see it. But for the code monkey’s, it may be the cat’s pajamas.

Until I hear ‘why’ it’s better, I’ll stick with Format Factory!

Ah. For this sort of work, I just want drag, click, convert. Reliably.
Losing audio's a fail for me. Thanks for the test! :P
