    I have tried out about 4 or 5 video to audio converters and all of them blow! Can someone give me a good one?

    NOT SUPER

    Installed a codec pack, and use WinAVI. It uses external codecs and is extremely customizable.

    AutoMKV and MeGUI are also great.

    You want to grab audio from a video file?

    You need a demuxer
    AVI:
    Virtualdub (any flavour) is a good start for basic save to wave.
    AVIdemux:

    MPEG2 (DVD)
    DGMPGdec:

    If you want some of the newer formats I suggest doom9 forums as stuff moves relatively quickly in this arena.

    MKV:
    MKVToolnix and MKVextract from it. A command line app but there is a 3rd party frontent

    frontend

    MP4:
    mp4box and the YAMB frontend are good ideas. Not sure about the current sites for these though.

    WMV, RM(?), MOV, FLV and anything more exotic save perhaps OGM.... just use avisynth's directshowsource and vdub or something and the 5000 different tweaks, implementations and the like would mean we are here all day discussing things.

    After this just feed it into your favourite encoding app of choice. Sidenote: a lot of encoding apps can also take video files as input and stuff like behappy can do avisynth scripts which is at worst a killvideo() away.

    A warning though, most video you will find on the internet is lousy for audio compared to the standards used for music and the like (basic 128kbps MP3 or worse and equally unimpressive AC3 and AAC although the latter is used to fairly good effect in some cases)
