When I add a video to a playlist, it interrupts the qeue; after a video finishes playing, no other songs play.

So, is there a way to copy a video and transform the copy into a "normal song" file - one that streams music without a video?

Thanks.

A clue as to what program, machine and OS you're talking about here would be useful ...

I am going to assume here that we are talking about iTunes and any relatively modern Mac. If I am wrong ignore the rest of this post.

If I understand your question correctly you have a music video file and want to extract the audio so that it essentially becomes a regular song file..

1. My first choice for this would probably be a program called Squared 5 - MPEG Streamclip video converter for Mac and Windows. It handles a wide variety of video files. It has controls like a tape based editor. Open the file, use keyboard shortcuts to mark the beginning and end of your music then pick export Audio from the file menu.

2. You can also do the same with QuickTime Player. I just can never remember how to invoke edit mode to select the part you want.

Edit: Found this description which might help http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4024If you want to export the entire song QuickTime Player says to do it this way:

Quote:
QuickTime Player gives you the option of exporting and sharing only the audio portion of your video. To export only the audio portion of your video, open your video in QuickTime Player. Choose Export from the File menu. Type a name in the “Export As” field. Then from the Format pop-up menu, choose “Audio Only” and click Export.

The following are 6 such tools that can rip audio from video. Only tools that are free are included. Although Windows only software dominates the list, you’ll both find both cross-platform, as well as web based software among them. Check it out.

1. Pazera Audio Extractor
2. Oxelon Media Converter
3. Any Audio Converter
4. AoA Audio Extractor
5. Audacity
6. iExtractMP3
