How to convert MKV to MP3

How to convert MKV to MP3

Converting MKV videos to MP3 can sound a little strange at first. Since MKV is a video format and MP3 is an audio only format mainly used for music, the process could more accurately be described as “extracting the audio” from your video file rather than straight up converting it. 

No matter what you want to call it though, getting an MP3 of the audio in a video is a necessity for a lot of people and finding the right tool to do it with can be a lot more difficult than it should. 

The web is riddled with converter websites that are riddled with ads and fake download buttons or old, difficult to understand apps that only work on certain operating systems and sometimes even come packaged with virus or unwanted software. 

With Flixier, we offer a way for people to convert and edit their MKV files easily and quickly without having to waste time looking for tutorials on YouTube or worry for the safety of their computer.
