Does it batch convert? Is it pretty fast? I just think Imtoo is such a pain 
because of the way it speaks the progress throughout whatever window I end up 
in. They must use some control that isn't standard for displaying that like 
maybe in the sys tray or something.

  Subject: [bct] Extracting MP3 Audio from Video Files

  Hi list,

  I just tried the Alive video converter and am really thrilled with it. 
Remember the podcast I did with the procedure I use for audio file conversion? 
Well, the video converter has nearly the same interface. The one difference is 
that if you want to extract audio from a video file (it sends it to an MP3 
file), you press up arrow to turn on the radio button to extract to MP3. Then 
tab to set the sample size, bit rate, mono or stereo, etc. and press OK. If you 
don't choose to extract audio, it will just convert among video file formats. 

  You can get the free trial from http://www.alivemedia.net. I bought it after 
trying it; the trial converts only 60 percent of a file. It is really a great 
product and very easy to use.

  I suspect it works with DVD audio but don't know that for sure. So far I'm 
just using it with MPG files but I think MOV files are listed as one of the 
file types, and I think those are on DVD's. The web site has other products 
that look tempting. I paid $29.95 for it, which is about the same price as the 
MP3 WAV audio converter.
