In fact, there are several ways to separate and extract audio from any video file including MP4, AVI, WMV, FLV, MOV and more.

How to Extract Audio from a Video on iPhone/iPad

Things could be a little bit difficult to separate audio from a video. While you can detach audio from your video with EaseUS Video Editor on a Windows device, how can you extract iDevice audio? There are also two solutions. One is to transfer iDevice video to PC and then extract the audio from a video (refer to Part 1). The other one is to use iPhone/iPad audio extractor. I have tried several apps to extract audio from video, MP3 Converter is a better choice. The app is free with ads.

Step 1. Tap on the Settings icon to select a different audio and video format. The default is set to MP3 and MP4 respectively. Moving on, tap on the "+" icon and select the video file you want to extract audio from.

Step 3. There are two options. The Default Mode will directly extract audio in the format you have selected in the Settings. In the Advanced Mode, you can control variables like output format, audio encoding, audio range, bit rate, and more. Once the app converts the audio, it will appear under the "Converted Media" tab.

Summary & Suggestion

Now you know 3 different ways to extract audio from video easily and freely. The online audio converter can help you achieve your purpose for free, but it's time-consuming, unstable and full of ads. If you have a high demand for quality, try EaseUS Video Editor.
