How to Convert Video to MP3

Convert video to mp3

The famous quote says that one eyewitness is better than ten hearsays. Nevertheless, many users need to convert their videos into audio formats like MP3. AVS4YOU professional multimedia tools export audio from video in MP3 quickly without any effort.

There are many reasons to take the sound out from a video, but these below are the most common.

  • Save songs from music videos. Suppose you watch a video of a concert and you like a live version of some song more than one recorded in a studio. Or just have a music video and want to make a song out of it to save it to your player, smartphone, tablet, etc. Plus you can make an individual ringtone or burn a full concert on to a CD and play it when driving your car.
  • Create podcasts. Some podcasts are initially video records and need further conversion into MP3. It is relevant for radio stations focusing on humor shows, particularly stand-up performances.
  • Transcribe speech easier. While transcribing what characters say in a video, typists have to go back every ten seconds if they don’t keep up with the pace of speech (which is incredibly difficult). Having an audio file you can do this work much easier: just use Speech-to-text technology and edit the output text.

About MP3

MP3 is a popular and convenient coding format for storing and compressing audio. It is widely adopted and has a fair sound quality. Still, as any format MP3 has its weak and strong points.

+ MP3 files are normally smaller in size, compared to WAV or FLAC. And sound quality remains similar to uncompressed audio.

+ MP3 is compatible with most of players and media services.

+ MP3 gives you an opportunity to modify bit rate, file size and level of audio quality.

MP3 is lossy compression, which reduces its maximum quality.

Compression may cause scratches and noises the initial recording doesn’t contain.

It has a strong competitor AAC that offers better sound quality at the same bit rate.

To conclude, MP3 is a perfect balance of good sound quality, acceptable file size and compatibility.
