Title: Flv to Mp3 Converter Dilemma

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-06-01 18:53:07

 

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Many devotees have asked me for a program which can extract mp3 audio from the flv video files which we are making available for viewing and download so that they can hear the lectures and kirtans on their portable mp3 players. Now we are not uploading mp3 audio files for the flv video files like we did for the Shri Chaitanya Bhagavata flv video files to save on the online space available so that we can get more videos online. So we require a flv to mp3 converter or mp3 audio extractor from flv files so that the devotees who need mp3 files to hear while on the move can download the original flv video files and extract the mp3 audio from it.

 

Fortunately Adobe FLV video format has two tracks one of video and one of mp3 audio. So it is just a matter of extracting the mp3 audio track from the flv video file. Unfortunately there seems be hardly any tool which will extract mp3 audio from the flv video file. An indirect way is to play the flv and record the audio to mp3 through a virtual recorder like the program Total Recorder etc. But there is bound to be quality loss and it will take a long time to convert flv to mp3.

 

There seems to be only one program in the world which extracts the mp3 audio track from flv video files seamlessly without any audio quality loss. It is card: "http://www.flashdig.com"]Flashdigger Plus. The free lite version extracts only a few seconds of the mp3 audio from flv. So Flashdigger Plus needs to be purchased by =1&DELIVERY=EML&languageid=1&stylefrom=223935&backlink=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.flashdig.com&currencies=USD" or paypal for $40 for converting flv to mp3. I contacted Mr. Alexander Bokovikov and he is asking $100 to make the flv to mp3 feature freely available to everyone in the world.

Hi, Swami,

 

What I can do for you is to give you the single file converter with GUI for one-time $100. I will do it as easy as to open this feature in FlashDigger Plus. If you agree then pay me the promised $100 by PayPal to

presenter@openworld.com PayPal name. And I'll upload the updated FlashDigger Plus version to our website. BTW some other features were updated recently too, so it would be a suitable reason to update the version.

 

Best regards,

Alexander Bokovikov

Adobe had said many many months back that they will release a free (?) flv to mp3 converter but there seem to be no word or no news about it from them. One way is to wait for a few more months from someone to develop a free tool or for Adobe to release theirs (both of which are not sure at all) or another way is to get it for $100 and make it free for all or another is to let the devotees who want to convert flv to mp3 buy FlashDigger Plus for $40 each or they have to use the long process of virtual recording to mp3 by fully playing the flv. Your feedback and comments will be appreciated.

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Looks good, but I hope it works with FLV 8 video files as all our videos are FLV 8 (On2 VP6) encoded.

One more possiable solution is Total Video Conventer

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! They claim that TVC works but it does not have the option to extract mp3 from flv 8 files. I tried it and it does not work.

Check this url: http://flv2mp3.com

Hope it can help you.

 

Swami Gaurangapada: Thanks Guest for your tip. This url converts only the video files of the older flash version 7. Anyway now we have a free version available on our site. Look in the flash tree menu on the left. Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Guru Parampara! Pranams and Blessings!
