    Question Programs used to rip audio from video?
    Hey, I've been trying to find software (preferably free) that can rip audio from mp4 video files. A friend of mine sent me a video, and I want the song that is playing in the backgrnd.

    I know programs that work on Windows, but now I have a macbook pro and I can't seem to find any programs that work with os X. Does anyone know of any?

    u can rip audio from a video file in garageband...not sure of which video formats it will support...if it won't load the mp4, then load it into iMovie into a new project and click Publish>Media Browser, then u should be able to load it into garageband and delete the movie track and then click Publish>iTunes from garageband...

    Wiretap is a program that I use. Its great and you can tap any audio that is playing out of your speakers. Its great. Hope that I can help. usually has a lot of "shareware". Its category specific and OS specific so finding utilities like that is a sinch.

    Audio Hijack works great as well... I've been using it for ages without any problems. It can rip audio from anything that comes out of your speakers.

    If you have QuickTime Player X (already on recent Macs) do the following.

    1. Open the video using QuickTime Player X
    2. From the File menu choose Export
    3. In the next Window name the file and use the export format drop down to set format to Audio Only.

    I also find MPEG Streamclip extremely easy to use for this and it is free as well.
