How can I rip a bit of audio from a video? I heard a cool song in a downloaded TV episode and I wanna rip it and post it here to see if anyone can identify it.
 
u can do what i did earlier ie. record the song with your mic using cool edit or somethin, hell even sound recorder will do, after all it doesnt have to have quality, and post it here, instead of downloading some software
 
Well I was hoping for a more elegant solution... :?
 
hey i thought u wanted that song recognised, but never mind, be elegant then!
 
I would suggest VirtualDub ( http://www.virtualdub.org/ ). It will take the audio out of any AVI, and if you need it out of an MPEG, then use VirtualDubMPEG ( http://fcchandler.home.comcast.net/stable/index.html ). You will, however find difficulty if the video has variable bit-rate audio. The only problem will be a major desynchronization of audio and video, but if you just want the audio then it shouldn't be a problem, just finding it will be harder.

Yep, the offset is like 3-8 seconds usually, so it should be fine...
 
Or use something like total recorder (http://www.highcriteria.com). It's fairly simple to use, and very good software for doing this type of thing. It's probably a lot easier than using any other method. You have to watch it once to capture the sound, but it will compile it into an MP3 for you, as part of the processing.
 
Below is for extracting audio from avi files. If it is a digital TV MPEG2 with AC3 audio you may have to use ProjectX to extract the audio and then BeSweet to convert it to mp3.

Ok, had look when I got home and worked out what to do. There are 2 ways to do it. For both you will need to get BeSweet and BeLight from the Doom9 download page and For one method you will need VirtualDubMod and for the other you will need VOBinput from the BeSweet website. There is a link to it from Doom9.

Method 1) Put the files from BeSweet, BeLight, and the VOBinput dll in the same directory. start up BeLight and make sure you have the wave tab selected. Set the input file to be the avi file that you want to extract the wave file from. Then start the extraction. now when you open the avi in VirtualDub go to the "Audio" menu item, select "WAV Audio..." and browse to the wave file that you extracted. From there you can do the avi compression to what you want.

Method 2) Open the avi file in VirtualDubMod and select no when it asks if you want to rewrite the header. Go to the "Stream list" option in the "Streams" menu item. Select "Demux" and save the stream. Now start up BeLight and, as in method one, make sure you have the wave tab selected. Open the mp3 stream that you extracted and start the extraction. Start VirtualDub and open the avi file. As in method one, select the "WAV Audio..." option in the "Audio" menu item and open the wave file that you extracted. From there you can do the avi compression to what you want.
 
VirtualDub worked like a charm. Thanks guys. :D
 
You can actually load video files into cooledit and edit the audio, or edit the audio in premier and export just the audio as .wav
