Why we think Flixier is the best method for extracting audio from videos

Now that we’ve shown you how to do it, let’s talk a little bit about why we chose Flixier for this demonstration.

Simply put, Flixier is one of the best free audio extractors, in our opinion. First of all, it’s compatible with all video file types and allows you to bring videos over from a number of different sources, making it useful in a large number of different scenarios. It also has the benefit of always saving the extracted sound as an MP3, which eliminates any compatibility issues and makes it so you don’t have to worry about file formats or conversions at any point in the process.

Second of all, we really liked that Flixier works entirely online. There’s no need to download or install an entirely new application in order to take advantage of its features. Just click on Get Started and you’re good to go! You don’t even need to create an account, although registering for one allows you to save your projects in the cloud and removes some of the file size and duration limitations.

Lastly, we enjoyed the multitude of features. Flixier is mainly a video editor, the fact that it can extract music and sound from videos is just a bonus. But this means that you can use it to trim your video and audio, apply an equalizer to the audio, tweak the volume or even remix everything. If you’re looking to make a meme or a funny TikTok/YouTube Short using the sound from another video, this tool is the best way to do it. We think that having all of these options readily available in your web browser is an important benefit.
