Nevo Video to Audio is an audio extracting tool that can create MP3, WAV, and WMA files from a number of video codecs, including AVI, MOV, WMV, and MPEG. The program provides a clear and well-structured interface that will guide you through the few steps necessary to extract the audio from your video files.
The whole audio extraction process is really simple – select a video file, an audio codec, and then press the “To Audio” button. The process may take a bit longer than expected, but the final audio files are of acceptable quality. The program is this simple to use, and it includes a convenient preview window that will make it easier for you to extract the audio of selected sections in larger video files.
While trying to learn more about the program and its possibilities, one finds out quickly that some of the features documented either on the web page, or in the help file, are not present. You can do without some of these missing features, but you may find others a bit misleading. Probably the most significant one relates to the list of audio codecs supported – though clearly advertised in the web page, OGG was not finally included as one of the output audio formats. A so-called “quick setting panel” that should help you select the subtitle and audio streams of your preference, as well as the frame rate or the final audio quality, is nowhere to be found. The information you can find on the developer’s web page is somewhat scarce, and it certainly does not help you to figure out if the features missing in the tool are nothing more than documentation mistakes, or limitations in the trial version (the version reviewed here). The only documented limitation of this version of the program refers to the time limit in the duration of the output audio file.
- Clear interface with simple functionality for quick audio extraction
- Inaccurate information present both on the web page and in the help file of the program
- OGG audio codec is not supported, despite being clearly advertised
