Home Python Extracting sound from WMV video format

Extracting sound from WMV video format

You must first get VLC media player at: http://www.videolanrg/vlc/

Then after installation:

1. Choose File => Open File (advanced)

2. Tab File => Browse button to open the avi or mpg or wmv, which we want to extract the soundtrack

3. Check Flow Release

4. Click on Settings

5. Select File + filename = "totoav" (put the full path to be safe)

6. encapsulation method = Wav

=> this parameter is the choice of container

7. codec audio = s16l in 128 kbits / sec or 192 kbits / sec (channels = 2 for the stereo)

8. 2 times click OK to start extracting the soundtrack

(note the size. wav output!: 600MB for an hour of music)

Note: you can choose different audio codecs in VLC, but I not sure what method of encapsulation choose ...

In any case, with a WAV, you can then use software that you know better to encode in another format (MP3, ogg, ...)

Another Solution:

To extract sound from any video you will have to use a software, I will advise you using AoA Audio Extractor which is a great tool to extract sound/audio and also background sound from any video files

Download it here.

Please note that AoA Audio Extractor is completely free
