Pazera Free Audio Extractor takes the audio from most major video files without loss of sound quality or converts them to a variety of common audio formats. The program can also behave as a simple conversion tool from one audio format to another (e.g. AAC to MP3).

Some supported formats include (audio) MP3, AAC, AC3, WMA, M4A, FLAC, OGG, WAV, ALAC, WavPack, AIFF; (video) AVI, FLV, MP4, MPG, MOV, RM, 3GP, WMV, VOB, MKV, WebM and OGV.

Note: By default, the program will extract/convert to MP3. Select "Try extract original audio stream" to avoid re-encoding. This is faster, but may result in a format some devices can't read. Additionally, the program has a number of predefined settings (profiles) specially designed for novice users. More advanced users can easily customize audio encoding parameters with output parameters.

I've used this one for a while to take small pieces of files and make them into ringtones, and it's great for that sort of thing.

You can't download a zip - you get redirected to cnet which only offers an exe file.


jrgermann 2011-11-29 18:17

as Kermode noted above, you cannot download a zip file. If you follow the links correctly, you must download cnet2_Pazera_Free_Audio_Extractor_zip.exe. When you "run" this file, you are sent back to cnet's As you proceed, you are asked to allow Incredimail to be installed. You have to uncheck this option. but when you click "next step" the .zip file is downloaded automatically to your "../mydocuments/downloads folder - NOT the folder from which you ran the .exe file.

This is very objectionable and unlike what I am used to at

I assume something has changed since this software was posted on 23 august 2011. As I recall, I downloaded the .zip file. I am making this comment because I was writing instructions for downloading for a friend of mind.

Please alter the instructions within the description of this product to reflect what to expect.

I was only using this app to extract music from downloaded YouTube videos, until I discovered another use for it: It flawlessly corrected all the MP3s in my collection that had incorrect duration info. Those files had been extracted several years ago with a faulty Windows Mobile app on my PDA. Some of them indicated as much as an hour in length, when in fact the songs were often no longer than 4 minutes; they all showed transfer rates of only 8 kb/s! The songs played OK, but the seek bar in my player was useless on them. I was able to correct this by batch converting all of them in the Pazera extractor (.mp3 to .mp3), without a single glitsch. Bravo, Pazera Software!

If I extract an mp4 with aac audio that I downloaded from youtube and in the program I choose mp3 rather than "extract original audio stream"(which would be aac), am I losing any quality?

I assume the original audio was also mp3 and youtube converted it to aac. Does the youtube conversion hurt the quality as well?

YouTube converts the audio so if you are converting YouTube's video to MP3, what you're really doing is decoding and re-encoding the audio twice. (Three times if the original source wasn't lossless).

It helps if you download the most high bitrate of the video (720p or higher). 360p-480p vids use roughly 96kbps VBR; 720p-1080p uses 192kbps VBR.

Latest version of Pazera supports audio extraction of WebM videos. So you can decode and grab the original OGG Vorbis stream with Pazera. Woohoo!

FYI, if you're extracting the WebM version of a YouTube video, the audio source is lesser quality than grabbing the highest-quality MP4 file by about 20kbps (at least from my initial testing).
