Rip audio from an .FLV file

Dion Moult


How do you rip only the audio from an .flv file? .flv files, or Flash Video files are the format used in browser-embedded videos, common on video-sharing sites such as YouTube or Vimeo. For whatever reason if you have an .flv file of your favourite music video, now you can get the music rocking solo.
