Hello, you can do this fairly simply with VLC media player. If you don't already have it, it is a very functional media player available for windows and Mac. You can download either version directly from CCM.

Open VLC and follow these steps

  • Click on Media > Convert/Save [CTRL + R].
  • Click on Add.
  • Browse and open your video file.
  • Click on Convert/Save.
  • Under Settings, in Profile choose Audio – MP3.
  • Hit Browse and give a destination file name.
  • Click Start.


There is also information in this CCM article on how to extract audio from any video file using VLC.

Let me know how you get on!
