Audio Extractor

Torch lets you not only download videos and audio, but it also allows you to easily extract audio from virtually any downloaded video stream. Once you find a web video that you want to save, you can just click on the Media Grabber button and save it to your computer without ever having to use external programs, converters or extensions to seperate the audio from the video.
The downloaded files will be saved to your default “Downloads” folder." One file will be saved as the complete video, and the other will be saved as audio (in an .aac file format).
 
This feature will automatically extract the audio from the video unless you choose, in the Torch settings, to prompt you for your preferrence first.

What is an AAC file
?
This stands for Advanced Audio Coding. The coding can be viewed as the new and improved MP3 format. AAC generally offers higher quality sound than an MP3 while using the same amount of disk space.  This file format is recognized by most all current media software, including other hardware devices such as Android OS, Playstation, Nintendo, PSP, Wii, Windows, Apple, and many others.
 
Can't play AAC?
Try it with the VLC Open Project
 
For more in-depth information concerning the AAC file format, please see the Wiki Link.
