Apr 24,2019• Proven solutions

The recordings of important business meetings or stunning moments from the events you attended contain both sound and video. Creating a new audio file from a video clip is a routine operation that enables you to combine the sound of one clip with any number of video clips you include in your projects or use it as a separate audio file. You don’t even need a desktop-based video editing software to extract audio from video files since a growing number of online platforms offer this service for free. That’s why, in this article, we are going to take you through some of the best online tools that allow you to separate audio from video files in just a few easy steps. 

Top 5 Online Audio Extractors

The limitations in terms of size and file format can narrow down your choices of online audio extractors. So, before you decide which platform you are going to use, you must first check the size and file format of your video. Let’s take a look at some of the best online audio extractors you can use to create high-quality audio files for free.

1. Online Audio Converter

The wide range of supported file formats, as well as the straightforward audio extraction process, make this platform one the best choices for anyone who wants to create an audio file from a video. The maximum size of the video file you can upload to Online Audio Converter is 2048mb, which means that you can even convert high-resolution files that last more than just a few minutes. Once you’ve uploaded a video file from your computer, Google Drive, Dropbox or some other online destination, you just have to select the output format and the quality of the audio file. Optionally, you can click on the Advanced settings option if you would like to add fade in and fade out effects, try to remove voice or change the bitrates and sample rates. Click on the Convert button when ready and proceed to save the file to your computer or at some online destination.

2. AudioExtracter

This platform enables you to convert video files to audio files automatically, but it also offers a variety of video, photo and audio editing tools you can use free of charge. You just have to upload a file, in MP4, AVI or any other commonly used video file formats, that is smaller than 500mb and AudioExtracter will convert your video into an MP3 audio file you can save to your computer. The only downside is that you can’t choose an output format, readjust the bitrate and select the quality of the audio file you are creating, which can significantly restrict your options. The platform also offers a new feature that enables you to convert YouTube videos into MP3 files, so that you can save all your favorite songs as audio files on your computer.

3. Online Video Converter

Online Video Converter supports almost all video file formats, which means that you can extract audio files from virtually any video clip, but keep in mind that the maximum size of the file you’d like to convert can’t exceed the 1000mb limit. The audio extraction process is rather simple as you just have to upload the file and wait for the platform to prepare your file for conversion. Afterward, you just have to select the output format and click on the Start button and once the conversion process is completed, you can save the file to a destination on your device or use the QR code to download it to a Smartphone or tablet. What’s more, you can also use the Online Video Converter to extract audio files from YouTube videos. Simply paste the video’s URL and then proceeds to choose the output format, and click on the More Settings option if you want to designate the start and end points of the new audio file. Click on the Start button to commence the extraction process and use one of the available methods to download the file.

4. Video2Mp3

Once you’ve pasted the video’s URL into the platform’s URL box, simply click on the Convert to MP3 button. You will then have to specify the preferred output format, or use the platform’s Search and Convert option that lets you search for videos on Dailymotion, Clipfish or YouTube and convert them. Click on the Convert button to initiate the conversion process, insert the name of the artist and title of the song you’re converting and proceed to download the video.

5. Zamzar

You can convert a video file with Zamzar in just three quick steps, upload a file from an online destination or from your device, pick the output format and click on the Convert button. Once the file is converted you can save it to your computer, however, the free version of the Zamzar platform offers only limited options. In case you would like to be able to convert files that are larger than 200mb, be able to convert via email, have access to online storage space, then you should choose one of the available subscription plans. Keep in mind that all versions of the platform limit the concurrent number of conversions, which means that even if you purchase a subscription plan, you are going to be able to make 25, 50 or 100 concurrent conversions each month, depending on the plan you choose.
