Good Linux Program To Extract Sound From Video?


Recommended Posts

im looking for a good linux program to extract sound from video files.

like in windows movie maker when you load a video it puts the video and audio in a separate track. you can cut the parts of the audio you dont want, then cut the whole video out and save it as an mp3 file. i want something that will show the video too so im not just searching through audio to find the part i want.

any one?

For your audio editing try Audacity first and if that doesn't work for you then try Ardour, it's harder to use but has many more features.

As for ripping the audio just use ffmpeg or mencoder...

ffmpeg -i input.vid -vn -acodec pcm_s16le -ar 44100 -ac 2 output.wav

That will extract the audio from an input file (input.vid) and output it to a wave file. You can change the audio codec to mp3 if you really wanted but if you're going to be making edits its best to work from a WAV.

This page will also help.
