Free Video to MP3 Converter

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.

    "Very easy to use and does the job perfectly!"

    January 13, 2013  |   By nanquan491

    Version: Free Video to MP3 Converter 5.0.21.1201

    Pros

    - No need to fiddle with advanced settings when converting like with MANY other software suits. Detects the original video file's audio quality and converts to the EXACT same quality with the output file. Absolutely brilliant and easy to use! 5/5

    Cons

    Comes with some bundled toolbar and DivX stuff. Just untick those during installations so you don't have to install useless junk that you don't need. Hey it's a free program so that's to be expected...

    Summary

    People who gave this program bad reviews are idiots. It's extremely simple to use, and yet works very well and does the job it's supposed to do perfectly. Exactly what you look for in a video->mp3 converter! Very easy to convert batch files you've downloaded from video sites to quality mp3s!

    "Well It Really Works"

    December 10, 2012  |   By miwi98

    Version: Free Video to MP3 Converter 5.0.21.1201

    Pros

    I really love this software and do what it says and no hangups is great. I have Win 7 64bit and was a little concern since I have problems with some software. I downloaded it 5 mins ago and used it less than a minute ago and I have no complaints.

    Cons

    None so far.

    Summary

    DVD VideoSoft really makes great software and has yet to fail me. I have use other versions for a few years and it looks like it gets better and better.
