There have been a few times where I’ve wanted to extract audio from video files, but it’s not always easy to find a free tool that can successfully do that. I highly recommend grabbing the free Pazera app if you ever find yourself in a similar situation. To make it even more useful the program also doubles as an audio conversion utility.

What are some things you can do with this? One great example is taking an FLV video (such as one from YouTube), and turning it into a standard MP3 music track. Think of all the free music you could get by doing this! It’s important to note, however, that the audio quality of a YouTube video isn’t exactly the greatest.

Here’s a list of video and audio formats it supports during the conversion process, and also some great features you should know about:

  • Video conversion: AVI, DivX, XviD, MPEG, MPG, WMV, ASF, MOV, QT, FLV, SWF, MP4, M4V, 3GP, 3G2, RM, RMVB, MKV, VOB, VCD DAT, OGM, AMV to MP3, AAC, AC3, WMA, FLAC or WAV.
  • Audio conversion: WAV, MP3, AC3, AAC, M4A, MPC, MPA, MP2, WMA, FLAC, SHN, APE, OGG, WV, AMR to MP3, AAC, AC3, WMA, FLAC or WAV.
  • Profiles. Users can create custom profiles, or you can select from one of the many already available.
  • Doesn’t need any installation. Just extract ZIP archive and click AudioExtractor.exe file. All of the settings are stored in a single file so that it can be carried around with you!

I guess if Super doesn’t do the trick that this just might.
