Apparently Virtual Dub lets you do this, Just search google for Virtual Dub Download and you should find it!

i think virtualdub dropped asf support due to request from microsoft. tho its advailable in early vers.

correct me if i'm wrong but asf is video file not audio. what are you trying to do with it?

Well, Right and wrong. I've downloaded audio only before, but Ive also got a few videos in ASF.

From what I understand it stands for Active Streaming Format, but Im not too sure about the A part...

ASF works by taking the previous frame and changing only what is different, rather than re-drawing the whole image, therefore requiring more proccessing grunt than MPEG1 files.

That was what I learned a while back at least, and you only really notice the proccessing power being needed if its being played on an old P75 :D
