I assume I'm using the right program to strip the audio from an AVI file convert to wav before re converting to VOB. The audio is missing if I try it just with other conversion progs. Others have helped me so far and I managed one conversion more by accident than design. When I open VDM I get a File menu which doesn't mention audio let alobe .wav it all seems to be about video. In simple terms what actually do I do to achieve a seperate .wav file from an AVI file. I currently have one running and have the input and output video running and the status seems to be telling me the size of the audio file which is going up. HELP!
