    If prefer GUI then can try Audacity with FFMPEG.
    https://manual.audacityteam.org/man/installing_ffmpeg_for_windows.html

    Just drag and drop your movie into Audacity.
    Shift+M and select split stereo track
    Delete the track you don't need and File -> export.

    I also tried putting the audio file instead of the video and it didn't work.
