Cool AVI To MP3 Converter is a free one-task application that extracts the audio stream of any AVI file and saves it as an MP3 file. AVI containers typically include an XviD or DivX video stream with an MP3 or AC3 audio track.
Using Cool AVI To MP3 Converter will allow you to separate the soundtrack from the video and then convert it (when necessary) into MP3 with the audio quality of your choice (the program offers you some basic quality presets labeled as Very High, Medium, Low, etc., though you can also use the Custom option and set any bit rate you want). Note that if you select a bit rate higher than the one contained in the AVI file itself, you will be getting a heavier file with the same quality as the original, regardless of what its new bit rate is. My recommendation is to choose the “Same Quality” option whenever possible. This way, you will keep the original MP3 quality without unnecessarily increasing the size of the output file.
The program's simple interface allows you to import as many files as you need and extract the audio from all of them in a single operation. The chosen settings will be applied to all the generated output files.
