Extract audio from video files using VLC

You can use the following command to extract audio from a video file using VLC:

$ vlc 
    "Source File" 
    --sout #transcode{acodec=mp3}
      :duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=raw,
      dst="Output.mp3",select=novideo}}

(Important!: The argument of "--sout" must have no spaces in it (except for in the "dst" attribute).

To only extract a segment of audio use the following command:

$ vlc 
    "Source File" 
    --start-time=start time (in seconds)
    --stop-time=stop time (in seconds)
    --sout #transcode{acodec=mp3}
      :duplicate{dst=std{access=file,mux=raw,
      dst="Output.mp3",select=novideo}}
