Is there any free software utility that can separate audio from video?

    Let's say I find a great video on the internet. Is there a free and legal way to separate the audio file only? Is there a software program that will do this?

    And if there is nothing that's free, do you suggest buying a certain music/mixing program out there that has this capability?

    Thanks in advance.

    quicktime 7 will do this, as will QTx, as will mpeg stream clip, as will any of the iMovie programs.

    audacity MIGHT do it - i dont recall.

    handbrake will certainly do it.

    I wasn't sure if I should have put this into the iPod/iTunes discussion forum.

    Well anyway, my friend has a PC (which I don't use), but I assume quicktime 7 is probably available as a free download for Windows 2000 and Windows XP which he has on his machines.

    Anyway, thanks for the answers.

    I told my friend and he's been successful and is very happy. And many thanks to all of you here.

    I don't much do digital music myself, but it's nice to know one can easily separate video and audio from each other.
