Cool Aspects To Linux

I needed to extract the audio out of a WMV file and convert it to an MP3, and while I could not find a program immediately to do this, I did find this very simple set of instructions for how to do it:

i have downloaded some videos in wmv format and i needed to convert them into mp3 to play on my mp3 player. after searching google for how to do this on ubuntu i found a solution:
- first install lame and mencoder:
$ sudo apt-get install lame mencoder- Run mencoder command to convert wmv file to mp3 file:
$ mencoder audioFileName.wmv -oac mp3lame -ovc frameno -of rawaudio -o audioFileName.mp3
And it worked like a charm.
