In fact, there are many awesome tools to extract audio from mp4. That’s to say, you need import video to audition. Just learn how to do it below. Try now
Convert mp4 to audio format
First, one handy utility you need here is video grabber pro, no doubt, as soon as you download YouTube video as mp4, the best choice is to carry out formats conversion. After clicking Add, your video will be imported, audio formats like mp3, wma, ogg, aac, wav etc can be selected as output formats once you hit on Profile.

Honestly, a bit hard to operate this program.
Using VLC media player
VLC is more than a media player, it is also capable of converting video to mp3. After installing on your PC, go to Media – Convert. Import your videos for converting, then check File and click Browse, just note here: when you specify destination file, your filename is attached to “.ps” extension automatically.
