In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to convert video to mp3 with vlc Media Player.
Open VLC Media Player and click on “Media” at the upper right hand corner then choose “Convert/Save”. You can also use the shortcut “Ctrl+R”.
In the window that pops up, make sure the “File” tab is selected and then click on the “Add” button.
This will open your windows explorer. You only have to locate wherever the video you want to convert is located and then double click on that video to load it into the source label. This can be any video format. When that is done, you must find the “Convert/Save” button below the screen and then click on it; A new window will pop up.
When the window pops up (from step 1), you will find a screen similar to the one below.
Just click on the “Browse” button. When you click on the “Browse” button, you only have to choose a location where you want to save the converted files. If you don’t specify a path, the converted files will be saved at “Program Files/VideoLAN/VLC”.
This is the most crucial part. Lets continue from the step 2. You will find the label with the name “File Name”. Here, you must enter the name of the converted file, it can be the same name of the file you are converting or a different name. You must then add the file format you want to save the video into. Example, in this tutorial, I want to convert a video to an “mp3” audio file format, so I type “channel trailer.mp3” where the “channel trailer” is the audio file name and the “mp3” is the file format. When you are done, you just click on “Save”
You will fine under the “Settings” the “Profile” label and then click on the dropdown menu. Continue scrolling down and choose “Audio MP3”
When you are done, you just click on “Start”. That’s all. You will convert video to mp3 with vlc successfully.
You can convert any video to either mp3, or wav audio formats.
