Q: “How to convert MP4 to WAV because I want to extract the audio from a video and I don’t want to get an MP3 file for quality loss.”

Sometimes, you may come across a video or movie and are deeply attracted by its background music. You hope to extract the soundtrack from it but don’t know how.

This time, I will introduce the most powerful video converter to help you get it done – change MP4 to WAV with ease.

You may ask why not MP3? Indeed, MP3 is the most popular audio format and famous for its good compression ratio. However, it’s exactly the very compression that makes MP3 suffer from noticeable quality loss. So, in this case, WAV – an uncompressed and lossless audio container – seems to be a better choice.
