    hi, i have a MPEG 4 video file, and i would like to extract the audio from it.

    Normally i just import a video file into pro tools and it extracts and imports the audio on import....

    but this time its saying its unsupported.

    Is there a workaround? or if anyone can think of how i can get the audio from this file?

    thankyou.

    the quicktime i have is the free one i think.
    ive never purchased it, unless it came bundled with something.
    Try it.

    where did you get it from? I'm sure there's other software out there but been trying to find something to do so, for free?

    quicktime pro 7.5.5 is what i have.
    It just comes free when you update OSX maybe? or sometimes its just thrown to us with itunes updates.... usually..... no idea....unless it came with my purchase of pro tools....

    try getting the free version...and test it....
    or yahoo for other free options...theres bound to be some....

    no i didnt pirate it....ive always hated quicktime and never used it....
    i prefer VLC for my video needs, smoother player than quicktime.
    If its not free it must have come bundled with an audio package.

    Found the best way, garage band. still a learner in OS X & found you can extract audio from movies via the media bar.

    Cheers AGAIN Apple for your cleverness.
