View Full Version : Extracting audio only from a recording
09-29-2003, 02:10 PM
My digital cable service has several commercial free, music only channels. No problem recording and playing them back, but I'd like to extract some of the audio to listen to the music in my car. Other than going through an MPEG editor (or bypassing the Sage recorder) is there an easier way of doing this?
To create a WAV file, you need a tool called "Flask MPEG XiS 3.0e" (right now, this tool only works on Windows2000 or WindowsXP). This is a "freeware" tool developed by Alberto Vigata and can be downloaded at http://go.to/flaskmpeg Goto to "Downloads" and download the FlasKMPEG 0.6 Preview. Install FlasK 0.6 Preview and run it. The version displayed on your screen should be FlaskMPEG XiS 3.0e. Then:
With the WinTV-PVR, record your MPEG file in any MPEG format. We use 2Mbits/sec when we want to extract the audio since we will be throwing the video track away.
Open FlasK and click File / Open Media and locate your MPEG file.
Then click Run / Extract audio to .wav
When finished, you'll have a WAV file in the same directory as your original MPEG file!
