There are many applications that come in handy when you want to listen to music or record some tracks and save them to your computer.

However, if you are interested in a nifty app that simply extracts the audio background from any selected video, you need to look to a specialized software solution, such as Music Extractor.

The GUI (graphical user interface) of this utility is highly intuitive, so as to encourage even those with little computer knowledge to make use of its functions.

You only need to browse to a video file on your computer and load it within the application. The supported source formats are varied, such as WMV, AVI, FLV, SWF, MOV, MP4, RM, MKV, MPEG or MTS.

The next and final step is simply to press the dedicated button and wait until Music Extractor analyzes your loaded clip, without any input on your side.

Once the process is complete, it automatically generates an MP3 file and saves it to your specified location - you are also offered the possibility to open the containing folder with a single mouse click.

All in all, Music Extractor can be of great use to all those who are interested in retaining only the audio tracks from their selected videos.

Considering that you do not need to configure any complicated settings, this utility is especially handy if you are a novice. On the other hand, expert users might not be satisfied with the limited feature-set provided by Music Extractor as it offers little control over the output MP3 file (for instance, they cannot define the start and end points, or modify the volume to their liking).
