  1. Hi

    Would any VH member know how to remove the music etc and just leave the vocal from a YT video? What i have is an Mp3 rip from a YT video and it has that dreadful background music/effects playing while the person is talking which i'd like to remove.. Any help would be appreciated..

    Thanks

  2. try a filter :

    ffmpeg.exe -i song.mp3 -c:a pcm_s16le -af "bandreject=f=900:width_type=h:w=600" out.mp3 -y
    This command attenuates everything between 900 - 600 = 300 Hz and 900 + 600 = 1500 Hz.

    if you want more attenuation you can chain the filter as many times as you want:

    ffmpeg.exe -i song.mp3 -c:a pcm_s16le -af "bandreject=f=900:width_type=h:w=600, bandreject=f=900:width_type=h:w=600" out.mp3 -y

    Reality check: this is not IMPOSSIBLE to do, but is very, very difficult, even for pros. Don't expect more than mediocre results.
    *Exceptions: music vs. dialog vs. FX separated by channel or stream, or mixed in a way to separate out via matrixed channel subtraction.

    He's right. mplayer had a karaoke filter that would remove the vocal but it did so by cancelling out the centre channel. This is the opposite of what the OP wants.
