Help!! How do you delete audio from AVI??greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread
Help! I have finished capturing over 4 hrs of video and realize now that audio was captured at an unacceptable format!!
The audio is actually background music that I would rather just get rid of anyway. Is there any way for me to remove the audio track from the AVI files using **free** software? I've tried virtualdub and AVI Edit but they don't work.

What is the eventual destination of the video? Do you plan on making a VCD? If so, you will need to convert the .Avi to MPEG1 at VCD rate. Once it is in MPEG format, you can use a demuxer such as the free TmpgEnc to split the video and audio into 2 seperate files, one video and one audio. You can use the free avi2mpeg program at http://home.t-online.de/home/Hallbauer/avi2mpeg.zip
If you need it in .avi, you can always convert the .m1v (mpeg video only) stream back to .avi with mpeg2avi program.

I just tried to remove sound from one of my avi with virtualdub and it worked fine.
Here is what to do: Open your avi file in virtualDub Choose Video tab, set video to direct stream copy Choose Audio tab, set audio to no audio Save AVI (F7), give it a new name, ok you now have an AVI with the same codec as before with no sound
