First off, I'm dumb and don't know all the lingo so please be kind.

I have a few podcasts and other things I downloaded in mp4 format and want to know if there is some way I can do Something to the files so they contain only audio instead of audio and video. I don't want the video, just the sound.

Any methods for accomplishing this simply?

Thanks

cheers

Your soundcard may have a " what you hear " option, if not, check here for Audacity and / or AudioGrabber. It should just involve playing the files and using either to record the sound

:whistling:


I looked at the website for the tool, and I did not see it list supporting mp4 files. The process I use for extracting audio from video files is handy that it work for any initial video format and requires two freeware tools.

First, I convert the initial video file (mp4 in this case) to AVI with the great free opensource transcoder Super
[http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html]

Second, I take the new AVI file and open it with the great video tool, VirtualDub. Once you have opened the file in VirtualDub, you can export the sound as a wav file by clicking "File" -> "Save Wav...". Then you have the wav!

Hope that helps,
Tom

Well, here is a codec for mp4.
After installing you can simply input file in Video MP3 Extractor
I thought its the simpliest way...

Ah, that would work well and I had not seen that codec before for mp4 stuff. So, now you have two choices for extracting the audio! :)

Cheers,
Tom

Thanks for all your tips, everyone

the programs i've looked at so far seem to be only for PC's -- is there anything for MAC?
