Convert flv to mp3 on Linux platform

I am having Linux operating system installed on my system. I am a new user to Linux and also I am not aware about the commands used to operate it. There are songs, videos in my drives. I want that all my .flv extension song files to be converted into mp3. I don?t know the command to convert it. Is there any other steps that should be followed to convert these songs? Also suggest me some software that can convert .flv to mp3.

Re: Convert flv to mp3 on Linux platform

The command to convert flv files to mp3 is very simple. Suppose you have a file in the following path /home/you/video/thedoors.flv then you must type relative file name and also specify the path where you want to save the converted mp3 files. Open the terminal and type. The command is given below:

ffmpeg -i /home/you/thedoors.flv /home/you/music/thedoors.mp3

The file will be converted and saved in the specified location.

Re: Convert flv to mp3 on Linux platform

Suppose that you have ffmpeg and lame installed on your system. You can convert flash video files (.flv) to mp3 files. Suppose you are unaware of the location of where these videos are stored then you can use cache directory of the Firefox. You can find it by following command:

.mozilla/firefox/=somealphanumeric=.default/Cache
This is place where the video files are stored. To convert flv to mp3, use ffmpeg. In order to encode mp3 correctly you will also need lame. In more recent version you need to add an extra ?k? for kilobyte
The command to convert flv to mp3 in kilobyte is as follows:

[chris@hismachine:~]$ ffmpeg -i flashvideo.flv -ar 44100 -ab 160k -ac 2 output.mp3
Files will be converted to mp3 in kilobyte.

To convert flv files to mp3 you can download software which will convert these files in which ever format you required. If you are downloading videos from You Tube or some other multimedia websites then by using flash player install ?Video Download Helper Extension? which will provide you easily download and convert files from websites at the time of downloading and save it in whichever formats you require.
