Extract audio from a video file in Ubuntu

mplayer -dumpaudio GummyBearSong.avi -dumpfile gummybear.mp3

Where:

GummyBearSong.avi” is the source video, in the example above it was 30 MB
gummybear.mp3” is the output audio file (in mp3 format), was about 3 MB in size

and surprisingly it took 1 second only!!

I think it runs on other video formats as well, as the source article was working on an “flv” file.
