Audio Only

Thanks for all the great work!

Can you implement an audio extraction in a future release? I would like to convert .wtv to an .mp3. Thanks again.

You can do that through a customized profile.


Take one of the existing profiles and customize it, for e.g. take the DivX Fast profile, under the ffmpeg-video option make it -vn

This will disable the video, leaving behind only the audio. Change the ffmpeg-ext to .mp3, change the ffmpeg-audio to a mp3 codec and you'll be set.


You'll have to put some work into it but it can work.

Thanks for the help!


I've tried making the changes you suggested (and using info found at, but unfortunately I cannot get it to work. No file is produced after MCEbuddy processes my video. My profile is:


[DivX AVI Fast]
ffmpeg-audio=-acodec libmp3lame -ab 160k


Any suggestions? Thanks again.

Refer to the MCEBuddy Documenatation on writing profiles. Also you've got the video parameters wrong.

Here is a sample to get started, I haven't tested it but see if it works.



Description=Convert to audio only MP3 output


ffmpeg-general=-threads 0


ffmpeg-audio=-acodec libmp3lame -ab 160k

ffmpeg-audioac3=-acodec libmp3lame -ab 160k








I assume you're NOT planning on using commercial cutting with this (i.e. set the commercial removal options to NONE on your conversion task page when using this profile)

The above profile I've put will work in 2.3.9 (tested) with commercial removal enabled. 2.3.9 will be out in a few days.
