Ubuntu: Convert video to audio in CLI

October 5th, 2014 § 0 comments

Converting a video on Ubuntu is pretty easy with avconv. If you don’t have avconv command in your PATH, you need to install libav-tools

sudo apt-get install libav-tools

After installing avconv,

avconv -i /input-file-name-with-path output-filename.mp3

This will convert your video input file into mp3.
-i option is used to indicate the input file.

You can use --help for more help and details options.
