Convert Mp4 to Mp3 in Linux Terminal

First things first, install the required software packages. sudo apt-get install ffmpeg && sudo apt-get install libavcodec-extra-53 Then use it. For FFmpeg with Constant Bitrate Encoding (CBR) ffmpeg -i video.mp4 -vn \ -acodec libmp3lame -ac 2 -ab 160k -ar 48000 \ audio.mp3 or if you want to use Variable Bitrate Encoding (VBR) ffmpeg -i video.mp4 -vn \ -acodec libmp3lame -ac 2 -qscale:a 4 -ar 48000 \ audio.mp3 If it says ffmpeg is depricated use this command instead. avconv -i video.mp4 -vn -acodec libmp3lame -ac 2 -ab 160k -ar 48000 audio.mp3 The meaning of arguments argv meaning -i input file name -vn disable video recording -acodec force audio codec to libmp3lame -ac set the number of audio channels -ar set the audio sampling frequency I hope this helps.
