You could try Total Recorder - it does cost $US20 but has a great many uses and I'm sure you would find it useful in the future

Or, for super cheap, use {sound recorder} to record while the .avi is playing the relevant bit. Make a dummy .wav file first to save it into, as sound recorder defaults to some ridiculously short time limit.

try virtualdub
or virtualdub mod

if it's able to open the avi you want you'll be able to demux the audio stream
then get audacity to chop out the part you want
or you can select and range you want in virtualdub too i think

Use audacity.
Once running you import the sound file from the avi, trim to your liking and save it in what ever format you require.

If you want to use it and you need more help then let me know.

Unfortunately i've removed it from my computer because i use Cool edit pro now but there is a way to do it in audacity. Look for an "extract audio from video" or "import audio from video" option.

I don't get the complication...I save audio from vid files all the time with Audacity.

Audacity can record ANYTHING you can hear on your computer...just make sure the source is set correctly...don't use the microphone setting..it'll capture all the ambient noise all around it and record it to your chagrin.

Remember..if YOU can hear it, you can RECORD it in Audacity!
