In this article, I am going to show you how to convert video to MP3 with VLC player. Occasionally you may need to convert a video file to an MP3 player to take with on an iPhone, iPad or to just listen to audio without video. Today we take a look at how to use the free program VLC to convert video formats to an MP3.
