If you want to take audio from a YouTube video, this tool will also help via its video download and video conversion features. Thus, it is applicable to more situations.

How to Take Audio from a Video Online

Do you want to convert a video to audio without any software installation? If you do, using an online video to audio converter will get your needs met perfectly.

But before you start, there are things you need to know:

  • Online converters may cause privacy leaks.
  • If you have lots of videos to convert, you will spend a lot of time uploading these items.
  • Some online converters may put your device at a virus infection risk.

Thus, if you are going to use an online tool to extract audio from a video, make sure the tool you want to apply is reliable. Here I'd like to take one of them as an example.

To take audio from a video:

Step 1. Go to visit the online converter with a browser.

Step 2. Click "Open Files" and select the video you'd like to convert.

Step 3. Select the target format by clicking the tab.

Step 4. Click "Convert" to start extracting audio from the video.
