VLC is such a great piece of software that every now and then we find something interesting. Some days back, we posted some good blogs on VLC and one was to extract audio from video. But the discussed method was a bit lengthy and inapplicable at times. So here is one absolutely simple method to do the same.

Rip audio vocals from video

1. Open VLC media player and goto Media>Convert/Save [CTRL+R].

2. Choose the video file in the box that appears. Here we’ve selected a mp4 video file, but you can select any video format. The conversion works on all.

Select ‘Convert’ from the Convert/Save option that appear at the bottom.

3. In Destination option, name file with .mp4 extension, say only-audio.mp4.

In Profile option at bottom, select ‘Audio-AAC(MP4)’ and hit start. This will convert the selected mp4 video to mp4 audio ripping off the video portion.

That’s all! Now play the converted file. You’ll hear the audio only. Video ripped off.

Try this by yourself and tell us if the method worked. Using the same option you can also convert video and audio files in one format to another format.
