    How do I rip the audio from .MOV (quicktime) file, into a WAV file? What program do I use?

    Thanks.

    Are there any programs that are relatively small? Arcsoft and Ulead are over 100mb. And I don't even know how to install MPlayer...seems like its for advanced users.

    Thanks. I just want one of those simple programs.

    Get Quicktime Pro and you can export directly to wave.

  5. EO Video works if the file wont let you export it in QT Pro.

    Thanks Weeji, I tried both EO Video and QT.

    Apparently there's something wrong with my file, and both programs stop about 26 minutes into the video. EO video says something like an unexpected end in the stream.

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    For SUPER, you don't need to. It includes ffmpeg as part of its 'internals.'

    ffmpeg is fine as long as the audio is something that libavcodec can decode. mplayer on the other hand uses libavcodec, but can also use qt codecs for unsupported stuff. Whatever that might be now that libavcodec can decode qdm2.

    I tried SUPER and the same thing happened. It just stops encoding at the 26 minute mark.

    Sounds like your file is broken.

    Does it at least play all the way through when just playing?

    If so, use TotalRecorder, or some other "What-You-Hear-Is-What-You-Get" recorder.

    1. Go here: http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html
    2. Click: "HTTP" link that is to the right of "MPlayer Windows with SMPlayer GUI (recommended)".
    3. Install the .exe file.
    4. Rock it out!

    I found this thread because I had taken videos at concerts I went to with my iPhone, and wanted to add the audio to my music library.

    My "solution" is more of a hack, but a hack that works beautifully.

    1) import the .mov file into iTunes (either through the menus, or dragging it in)
    2) create an iPod/iPhone version of it from the advanced menu
    3) after it's converted, click on the new file in iTunes and drag it to a folder on your computer. This will give you a .m4v file - it'll be smaller than the original .mov file.
    4) back in iTunes, delete both the original file, and the converted file
    5) Change the extension to .m4a and make any changes to the file you want to make it show up in the right section of iTunes (view the file properties and fill in artist, song, album, etc)
    6) drag the file back into iTunes.

    It will now show up in the music section, and if you filled in the details for it, it'll show up under the artist's name. It'll still contain all the data for the video (and if you double-click on it in the folder you copied it to in step 3, you'll see the video play), but iTunes will consider it an audio file.

    Hope this helps!

    You could use TAudioConverter. Select "Copy audio" instead of "Encode audio". In case of errorsi you can send log.txt to me.

  18. I found the easiest way to do this using ffmpeg is to open the file in Audacity.
