    There are apps I could download, if I knew what was good, but there is nothing native to Windows that can convert video to audio.

    Do you run Linux, @Steenamaroo ? Sometimes I use Ubuntu, but never Mac.

    Oh, of course..It's a video (duh).
    I guess Reaper should be able to do it?
    Maybe there are more specific solutions but it's free and easy to use.

    The process would be import video > Bounce out audio, rather than 'click convert'.

    Edit: MacOS here.

    You can use VLC on Ubuntu. Media->Open Network Stream, then select the Audio output format (MP3, FLAC, CD).

    P.S. Just tried this, and couldn't make it work - also tried the Convert/Save option, no go. Just got an empty file. Hmm. Well, it used to work, or maybe I'm forgetting something

    So I guess I will try out VLC, since Reaper is currently only offering a trial version.
    My thanks to all, and if there are any more suggestions, go right ahead and suggest!

    Reaper's trial version isn't limited in any way. It just has a nag screen on launch.
    VLC should work fine, though.

    VLC should do the trick. Sometimes the audio codec is limited by which video codec is chosen. I think that Quicktime has an option for 24 bit PWM for a lossless conversion. Then you can use something like Reaper to convert to V0 or 320 kbps MP3.

    I converted a few songs to mp3 in my studio. They sounded almost as good as the 16 bit versions thru my monitors. After loading them on my laptop from a thumb drive , they sounded like crap ! My laptop settings were the culprit.. (in my case) MS.
