Introduction


How to Convert MPEG4 to MP3 When the video part of a file has a zero value for you while the audio part is exceptionally important, you can go for a special type of conversion which turns your video files into audio. This particular tutorial dwells upon MPEG-4 to MP3 conversion. We will explain how to use special programs to extract the audio part and leave the video behind.

Guidelines

Online converters

There are a lot of online converters that allow you to convert video files to various formats for free. Not all of them support video to audio conversion though, so you want to look for those that can do that. For example, try Convert2Mp3 or 2Conv. They are extremely easy to work with: just import your MPEG-4 video, tweak the settings if any are available, specify the output format (MP3) and press Convert. Usually, the process takes some time, it depends on the size of your file and your Internet connection and speed. On the completion, download the new file onto your computer.

Desktop converters

Many people don't trust online converters (which is reasonable in many cases), and if you're one of them, go ahead and download a desktop converter. You can use one like Any Video To MP3 Converter or Any Medias to Mp3 Converter. They are simple enough to be used by newbies and effective enough to meet the requirements of advanced users. To convert your file, import it to the program, specify the desired format, play with the settings, and hit the Convert button. Most of these programs are free and very user friendly and intuitive. Once you're done, go to the containing folder (you should have specified it earlier) and check if the output file works well.

Warning

Always examine any programs that you download with your antivirus. Some of them may contain malicious elements that you don't want to see on your computer. Ideally, try to use reliable software that was recommended by a trustworthy source.

Conclusion

This type of conversion is not very common because usually people convert video files to video files and rarely want to leave the video part behind. However, if that's the case, finding a good program for conversion isn't a big problem, too. Use our tips to make the process as quick and simple as possible.
