Note that Audacity Beta can extract audio from video files if you add 
the optional FFmpeg library to your computer:

This means you can select and import a video file using the standard
File > Open or File > Import > Audio menu in Audacity. If you 
download "FFmpeg for Audacity" from the above page, you will 
need to use Audacity 1.3.13 (the current Beta).

In the usual way, for example by pressing [ and ] when you hear some 
audio that is only noise. The ] key will draw a selection between the
points in the audio where you pressed [ and ]. 

Instructions for Noise Removal are here:
