FLV or flash video is THE most commonly used format for streaming videos on many video sharing websites such as YouTube, MetaCafe, Google Video and many others. I have already discussed that how you can conveniently download multiple files from these online video sharing websites using Orbit downloader. But sometimes you don’t want the video part part of the FLV file and only the audio part(preferably in mp3 format). You may want this for a number of reasons but most probably to transfer favorite audio songs to your portable audio player such as IPod, Zune etc.
There are a number of software available both freeware and shareware that allows to extract the audio part of an FLV file but almost all of these re-encode the audio after extraction to the desired output format such as MP3. As a result the extracted MP3 file you will get may not have preserved the 100% quality of the original audio stream that was originally there in the FLV file. Also because re-encoding is involved in this process the conversion may take some time for FLV files with a longer play duration.
FLV Extract is a tiny utility that is a perfect solution for this situation. It allows to extract the embedded audio(mp3) part from the FLV file in the original as it is form. As a result you will not experience any loss in quality because of the re-encoding because no re-encoding is involved at all. As a bonus, extraction process will be lightning fast. All you have to do is to drag&drop the desired FLV file on the interface and the Audio, Video, and Timecodes will be extracted in the same folder.
It is a must have if you frequently need audio from your downloaded FLV files for some reason. You can get FLV Extract from here.
