@smaragdus. Yep, not working, looks like the file is missing. I have contacted the author of the software for a fix.

removed broken link to portable edition, above links point to very old versions

winLAME , v2020 release 1
All .dll are considered dangerous by Norton and are deleted

webfork on 2020-12-28 16:39

@kinki: as noted in the, please post about possible malware issues to the forums. I would also check the download with VirusTotal first. As winLAME is open source and has been in development for 4+ yrs, it's probably a false positive.

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

I prefer freac snapshots to freac stable because the snapshots support more encoders (including the best one- OptimFROG, Monkey's Audio, WavPack, etc).

"Writes settings to: Application folder"
...I used it a few times - and in fact it doesn't write ANY settings anywhere... I didn't try "save coder configuration" from the menu though.

Pazera Free Audio Extractor v2.11 Updated

webfork on 29 Jan 2021
  • 34MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 19 Jan 2021
  • Suggested by jack

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, which is faster but may result in a format that some devices can't read. The program has a number of predefined settings (profiles) specially designed for novice users, but you can also customize audio encoding and output parameters.

Category:
Runs on:Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch AudioExtractor.exe or AudioExtractor64.exe.
