@ 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).

Pazera Free Audio Extractor v2.4 Updated

billon on 5 Dec 2016
  • 13MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 3 Dec 2016
  • 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. 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.

deathcubek: it sounds like you mostly got the testing thing ironed out, but just in case, there's a forum thread that covers a few different testing processes: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7718

Is LameXP the only audio encoder that can convert opus files?

webfork on 2016-05-20 02:07

I converted something to Opus yesterday with LameXP but TEncoder and TAudioConverter will also do the trick.

Stealth: Yes

The program uses the system directory for temporary files, but when you close the application all temporary files created by the program are removed.

very good application!

only 1 problem: had issues w/ FFMPeg.

it was unable to locate w/ default relative paths.

i had to hardcode the location in mp4toavi.ini in MP4_to_AVI.

other than that.. this reminds me of NCH Software.

MIKLO on 2016-06-02 12:50

I use this software to convert MKV to MP4 but man it is so so slow that its painful, but in fact it does work. I just wonder why it takes so long. At least it is with Windows 10 home I'm running.

When I try to get XMedia Recode 3.3.3.0 (XMediaRecode3330.zip) I get "Not Found" error. Has anyone managed to grab this version?

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