    Nope; *no* mention of video files, so is useless for my needs.
  2. Thousands of people use that software application successfully
    every day (including me). Most of us are not inclined to repeat
    back to you what you should have read in the instructions.
    Good luck.

    Let me Pete & RePete; I downloaded the DLL and properly "registered" it.
  5. Well, it was the first hit after I typed "extracting audio avi" in Google ;)
  6. Well, no. You did not say that you registered the DLL in any
    of the messages that you have posted yet. You may go to
    Google Groups and confirm this if you like.

    So just to be clear, at the command line you typed...
    regsvr32 wmp.dll

    Huh? HowinHELL am I using VirtualDubMOD to edit video files

    ALL of the VirtualDub series edit video files - and as a preliminary
    they want you to strip the AUDIO file off, doable from within the series.

    First time you've mentioned registering it.

    And how did your "properly 'registered' it"?

    Via REGSVR32? Or via some web site?

    No, it's not the only one that does what you want to do. As I and a couple
    others have mentioned before, Total Recorder will record anything that comes
    through your sound card. It will save the recorded audio to many formats,
    such as .wav, .mp3, and several others. I know it does because I just
    stripped the audio from a music video as it was playing in Media Player.

    Why don't you get that chip off your shoulder and speak reasonably with the
    folks who, out of the kindness of their hearts, have offered assistance to
    you. Remember, the people who use these news groups are here because of a
    common interest, not out of any obligation to help whiners and bitchers such
    as yourself. To be a bit more terse, you should not have bothered us in an
    electronic repair group with your inane ability to select a software package
    to do your bidding.

    Get a grip and grab a glass of cold iced tea to help you cool down.

    i don't understand the problem ?, i write software here and there
    and i do have a AVI video stream viewer that i use from installed
    video devices or using the installed codac's for decompression of
    a file or compression into a desired format.
    it's all part of windows programming. did i miss something here?

    Perhaps it's not the way you want to go, but as you play the A/V file,
    that software is capable of recording its associated sound to a file.

    As others have pointed out, extraction is something different.
    But you didn't ask for extraction programs.

    Gee..take your own advice and *read* my requirements!
    The so-called "universal" sound capture programs are not made for
    video files, period.
    Thousands of people use those programs for *other* uses: CDs, sound
    file conversions, recording frommike / line inputs, etc - - - and *that*
    But *NOT* what i needed.

    The secret being is to enter the correct request.
    Thanks for the heads up.
  14. Robert Baer

    Robert Baer Guest

    Yup! What i wanted is to "extract" the sound to some kind of sound file.
    Thanks to someone else, i got the program *made* for that and now i
    have what i needed.
  15. Robert Baer

    Robert Baer Guest

    Start from scratch.
    I downloaded a number of programs that falsely claimed that they
    would capture sound from any source.
    *NONE* of them worked.
    That is why i posted what you saw.
    Then someone mentioned a program written eXplicitly to do what i
    needed; i now have the audio file and the original AVI is intact.
    So from that point forward, i did not need to try yet another program
    that had the same claims (or less) than those i tried.
  16. Robert Baer

    Robert Baer Guest

    Well, until now, i did not know that was the term / terminology.

    A file in itself is not an audio source, so it's not false claims but
    simply that the suggested programs don't do what exactly you want, in the
    way that you want.

    Never mind, the only downside is that next time you ask for advice there
    will be a bunch of potential replyees who will just think "asshole", and
    move on to the next thread.
  18. You got that one right.
