Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

Same problem as #6 and #26.
The software code is full of serious fatal errors.
A piece of crap that does not function after installation.

Installed without problem, but won´t work. I tried to convert a mp4 video-file to mp3 and tried also WMA and got this message: "4347313960" is not a valid integer value. What the hell means this???

*sigh, roll eyes* at...

"third world effort..."

"good ol' american software..."

"english is a second language..."

etc, etc.

what the?!

this company is based in Nevada, U.S.A.!

annoying to wade through rants,

(I know I'm one, sorry)

just download the software and review it!

not interested in many of today's ones especially because of their racist(?) overtones.

if a piece of software was really good wouldn't care if the developers communicated with paw prints and stick figures!

...well ok maybe I would, especially if had to pay for it :-/

some of my favourite programs are from europe or eastern europe.

anyway, sorry, I feel better now :-P

hang on one more, irony = #14 Mac Donald's instead of McDonald's, and #20's spot.

this software is ok, don't know why the button says "Join Now" to convert the file though, the GUI creator/s must be third world non english speaking non american McDonald's employees :-P

in the tutorial (http://www.wav-editor.com/tutorials/tutorial08_how_to_extract_audio_from_video.html) it says "Convert".

#18 if you click "Finish" when your file has finished converting you can convert another file without it joining together with the last one you converted.

doesn't seem to do batch converting though.

will keep just in case.

sorry for the rant :-[

#20 well spotted.
#23 And others. A good programmer needs to know programme language only. His/her mother tongue has no impact on the software itself. Also consider the developer is not always the webmaster of the site.

#21 That is correct. I should have added the quality of AUDIO in #18.
In this case the audio qualty output was same as input. I have tried freebie extractors before where the audio quality deteriorated badly when extracted from videos.

Due to the negative feedback so far, I thought I'd better take a look at their website before I touched this offering. And now, I'm totally confused...

They list several awards and 4 or 5 star reviews for this product, but the reviewers listed either don't exist anymore or they mysteriously don't actually have ANY mention of this product on their sites.

However, curiously, I did find the following ratings at other reputable sites: 5 stars from Softoxi; 4.5 stars at Softpedia; 4 stars at freedownloadscenter; 5 stars at Prime Time Freeware. (And even good ol' Ashraf gave it a 7 out of 10 back in 2010.)

So, based on those reviews, I guess I'll give it a look.

On a side note, the checkout process (shopping cart) on their website is a bewilderment. No matter what product I clicked on, their checkout put an unlimited access subscription AND their full suite of software in my cart (including both regular AND pro versions), and ALL upgrades, for a total of $200. And despite having the appropriate buttons for removing items from my cart, it ignored any of those buttons I pressed. In a word, useless.

I see that several people have mentioned Format Factory. I tried that but for some reason when I tried to convert video to Ipod compatibility the software would give me two conversions back to back. Instead, I've been using DVDVideoSft (http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/). This is a suite of software (47 programs in all) and all free. There are converters, downloaders, and uploaders.

Reply   |   Comment by Rev Hans  –  8 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Everything seems to work OK with this, but I could not figure out how to keep it from joining the conversions into one big file. As for Freemake (#8) you just have to pay attention when installing. If you actually read the instructions, you uncheck a couple of boxes and it won't install anything you don't want. Prefer Freemake over todays giveaway as it is much more straight forward and easier to use, will be un-installing Gold Audio Extractor.

Two words....Format Factory! I use this to extract audio from Youtube videos with no problem. Excellent program...and it's always free.

Let me remind people that the algorithms used in the conversion process DO make a difference in how something sounds. Some are much better than others. If you don't believe it, I refer people back to the Stereophile Test CD which compares different DAC translations to CDs. It should be eye opening. :)

#14, As long as you're talking about putting some effort into getting it right, it's "fare", not "fair" :) So maybe perfect English isn't the main thing.

Another superior alternative: Pazera Free Audio Extractor 1.4

It has advanced features such as start time/endtime offset and duration. You may apply additional ffmpeg parameters to the conversion process. The ffmpeg library it uses is newer than those included in other freebies (I did check, mind you). It's worth the 10 euros I donated to the author.

Reply   |   Comment by LukeWarm  –  8 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

It seems that most of the comments so far, are from people who haven't even tried the software but still give a 'review' anyway.

#8 Yes, those offering free alternatives haven't even tried them either. Most freebies need to make money somehow, and that is usually through installing toolbars and Homepage Hijacks, sometimes even when you untick these installations.

Anyway to today's software offering. I tried different video formats including FLV AVI MPG etc. The extractor was successful each time. THUMBS UP
I also tried different audio outputs with success. THUMBS UP
I then tried 6 different video formats at once. The output to MP3 was successful. THUMBS UP.
The output was ONE single MP3 joined from the different videos. This was a surprise and maybe useful if you want one long MP3 album without breaks, but for most purposes individual MP3 are required by users. THUMBS DOWN.

I suggest that a batch extract facility be included so you can extract audio from lots of videos at one time without the hassle of doing each one individually. Also an AUDIO cleanup tool included.
Overall a nice easy to use software but with a boring feature-lacking interface. Just the one THUMB UP

Installed very easily on XPsp3. I assumed given the name that a typical use for this program would be extracting the audio from downloaded YouTube music videos, so I tried it on one (not copyrighted) lasting 1min 41secs, flv format, size 10.86MB. It converted it almost instantly into an MP3 similar in quality to the original, size 1.36MB. No complaints!

I looked up their awards on the sites that they listed for Softonics, PCWorld and Softpedia. A search for SuperEZ in all three places resulted in no reviews (or anything else for that matter).

So, I think I'll pass on this one.

Yes it installs ok on Vista, yes it works but why anyone in their right mind would pay good money for it I don't know. There are many free alternatives. Audacity being the most well known.

Once again we have poor English not only on the website but in the actual program. For those who think it doesn't matter wait until you try to get a job any where else than Mac Donald's. If you want to inspire confidence and sell to the English speaking market you need to to put some effort into getting it right. If you can't get ten lines of English right how are you going to fair with ten thousand lines of code?

Why is it merging the output files into one? I can't find any options to select or deselect this option.

I'm not a great fan of this kind of software but these two tools do the same things for FREE and are always updatable:

- Portable Audacity (because PORTABLE is better.....):

- Audio Extractor

My 2 cents!!

good work everyone.

The PC Magazine Editor's remarks on the 'endorsement page' for Gold Audio Extractor 5.5.9 as well as the rave review from Softonic both have the same awkward syntax as the author's page. It is clear to anyone who bothers to read carefully that English is a second language for this developer as it also appears to be for every reviewer quoted on the product's blurb page.
So here we have, yet again GOTD, a home-brewed third world effort to take an existing freeware, slap a new GUI on it, get up a web page and charge $30.00 to anyone foolish enough to pay it. This routine is getting as familiar as the bank-scam spam-mail coming from Nigeria and Benin.
No thanks.

Let me warn you all against installing Freemake, recommended by NuBatman in #5. It hijacks your browser and changes the settings before you can take a breath, installing the vile conduit search engine as a default and reconfiguring other settings. What a nightmare. Have spent the past hour getting rid of it and try to restore the browser. What a bummer!

Another Award-Winning Software Company based in Nevada (perhaps Gold Award).
This "company" has 20 Award listings, but not a single one of them to verify (the links are blocked to be re-read).

Here software alternatives and All free Open Source

After installing and registering the program does not fill the box(the whole right side and partial bottom is whited out). Once a video is dragged and dropped there are no options to chose for conversion. Is this a partial install or a bug? It doesn't work.

Reply   |   Comment by Joe  –  8 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+14)

Based on the size and limit of files I will have to pass. I have been using Total Video Converter (pay) and Freemake (free) to do all of my conversions. Freemake has a very super easy gui to convert media files, so this gaotd will be passed up for me.

Freemake website.

Reply   |   Comment by NuBatman  –  8 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+26)

all I can say is.. why?
I mean who really cares about these file converters, especially when theres tons of free ones already floating around, computers coming with them, and camera software also usually has something...
so I just don't why even try selling one. Thanks anyway GOTD.

Another audio extractor and it sells for $30. It claims it has a wide range of formats but Aiseesoft has a lot more formats. I have 3 computers and over 20 different extractor and don't need a new one. Not interesting enough to download and review. If you do not have an extractor try freeware called Pazera Audio Extractor or wait for Giovanni's suggestions.

Reply   |   Comment by ASBY  –  8 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+26)

Bit of a misleading software title in that it also converts video to other video formats. Instead of a button named something like "Convert" or "Finish" to start the conversion process, the button is named "Join Now" which is also misleading.

This software seems to have an identity crisis...

Reply   |   Comment by Nate  –  8 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+83)

Audacity (free and open source) does this for me just fine, and I can use it for any extra editing needed at the same time. And I'm not required to use Internet Explorer (why would I even need to if I have a stand alone extraction program????). Think I'll just stick with my current tools.
