Extract audio from Flash video
Authored by: grueni on Feb 17, '11 01:36:57AM

hmm... I have Perian and flip4mac (free version) and QT Player 7 on my Snow Leopard system.
I also own QT pro (through owning Final Cut Studio)...
I can simply open the .flv file in QT Player 7 and then export the sound to aiff, au and wave.

Agreed.

Perian and QT Player 7 is by far the easiest and most flexible way to handle pretty much anything you want to do with .flv files.

Drag .flv file onto iExtractMP3 get .mp3 file out... It really cannot get any easier than that... and it's free!

QT Pro with Perian won't export to MP3. Maybe with the right additional plug-in, but I never found a free one.

It's probably the easiest (and fastest?) way to do it (and been mentioned above ;)) but unfortunately, lots of people don't have QT Pro anymore plus I had a few quirks in the past with this method (because the videos has been badly encoded, the resulting audio tracks were having some pitch, pop and hiss problems) I've never tried the other solutions 'tho.

"I had a few quirks in the past with this method (because the videos has been badly encoded, the resulting audio tracks were having some pitch, pop and hiss problems)"

Of course, if you use QT Player 7 + Perian, you are simply extracting the ACTUAL AUDIO TRACK from within the .flv file.

Any audio glitches will be preserved. But the alternate transcoding methods will have the exact same glitches, PLUS a further degrading of quality due to the transcode.

If you transcode pitch, pop and hiss problems, you don't eliminate them. Instead you make them worse.
