    Default Using VirtualDub - Saving just the audio as a .wav file

    Software you will need:

    1. <a href="http://www.digital-digest.com/dvd/downloads/showsoftware_virtualdub_346.html">VirtualDub</a>

    <hr>

    To strip the audio out of a .avi file and save it as a .wav file, simply open up the video file (red) in VirtualDub (File > Open video file...) and click "OK" (blue). (Screen Shot Below)



    After clicking "OK" this error message might pop up, just click "OK" Its just a warning message. (Screen Shot Below)



    Then from the "File" menu, click "Save WAV..." (red). (Screen Shot Below)



    On the window that , type the name of the .wav file you want. For simplicity reasons, just use the same file name as the .avi file or similar.



    Done! You have now saved the audio stream as a .wav file.

    jmet, the method above just demuxes the file (and changes the extention to .wav, so its still mp3), it does not encode to LPCM (wave). to end up with a real wav file, under 'audio', click 'full processing mode', then click 'compression'. select 'no compression/PCM'. then under 'file' click 'save wav'

    same for vdubmod

    open the file, under 'streams' click 'stream list'. right-click the stream, click 'full processing mode'. right-click again, click 'compression'. pick PCM/no compression, click OK.

    click 'save wave', and save. if you don't do the steps above, it'll just demux the audio & change the extention to .wav
