CNET Editors' review
Free Video to MP3 Converter: that pretty well sums up this app from DVDVideoSoft. It can extract audio clips from movies and other videos and save them as MP3s you can play, well, just about anywhere. From ringtones to e-greetings to sound effects, the uses for extracted audio clips are many. This freeware makes it all a matter of a few easy clicks. And it just doesn't create box-standard MP3s but also WAV, WMA, AAC, APE, FLAC, OGG, and more, with several quality options for each.
This program's user interface and layout shares a family resemblance with DVDVideoSoft's other free converters, and it works much the same, too, with buttons for adding or removing files and arrows for moving them up and down in the main window's list view. We could edit the Output Name and Tags and choose an output destination. By default, Free Video to MP3 Converter selects MP3 on the Quality drop-down list, and the highest possible audio quality, 320-bit LAME Insane Quality (we could also choose LAME Extreme or Standard encoding and several other methods, including bog-standard CD "Red Book" 32 kb/s, 44.1 kHz stereo encoding). A handy Preset Editor let us save our settings for future jobs. The program offers few options, but interface languages and skins are among them. We could also display a log file, check for updates, and enable video acceleration using ATI technology.
We added a file to the queue and clicked Tags to add the metadata, including an optional image. We dialed back the bit rate to 192KBps until we had an idea what size file our short video would produce. Free Video to MP3 Converter doesn't let you preview and select excerpts from videos; it just converts the audio into your chosen output format and quality. Of course, editing MP3s (or videos, for that matter) isn't too challenging, but it's outside of this tool's capabilities, so you may want to save a clip before you convert it. Our 4-minute video only took about 15 seconds to convert and save, and it played normally in our usual media player.FLV to MP3 Free Converter - Convert .flv videos to MP3 - Download Video Previews:

"Simple to use"
Version: Free Video to MP3 Converter 126.96.36.1994
Very fast, easy to use interface. It blazed through 191 videos.
Some bundled software comes with it. Can be declined on install. Opt out functions are a little dishonest (the decline button is greyed out when preparing the download, but still works, and you have to select custom install when prompted and uncheck the bloatware or it will install all of that stuff you already opted out of already).
A solid program, though it does come with a lot of bloatware. You'll have to take extra care during setup or you'll accidentally opt-in.
