"While Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison earned her codename defusing bombs for the Global Defense Force, when evil transhumanist mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel unleashes the members of his cybernetic cult onto the streets of Neo DC, she knows it’s time to start causing explosions instead of preventing them.

"Her quest to slay Heskel leaves a trail of carnage throughout huge, multi-path levels filled with gigantic explosions, more secret areas than we can count, and inhuman foes behind every corner. There’s no regenerating health here; stop taking cover and start running and gunning." From the Steam store page.

This command extracts the audio from a video file and puts it in a MP3 file. Ffmpeg automatically works out the right codecs to use from the output file extension, in this case it's MP3.

ffmpeg -i VIDEOFILE OUTPUTFILE.mp3

If you wish to do the same with ann OGG file, you have to specificy that you want audio only, you can do this with the -vn argument.

ffmpeg -i VIDEOFILE -vn OUTPUTFILE.ogg
