If you use VLC Media Player for playing and organizing your digital music library, did you know that it can also be used for converting videos to MP3s? Not all software media players boast this feature, but it can be uber useful for quickly creating MP3 versions of videos without having to install any more software.
The problem with video files is they tend to be quite large. This is fine if you're going to keep them on your computer's hard drive or external storage device. However, there's a finite amount of space on portable devices like: media players, tablets, and smartphones. If you particularly like the music, song, or soundtrack from a video, then extracting this audio to an MP3 file can be the ideal solution compared to syncing a video that could quickly wipe out the remaining free space on your portable.
To see how this is done, we've written a tutorial that shows you how to convert video files to MP3s using VLC Media Player.
