How to Convert Screen Recording to MP3 [Fast & Easy]

If you've ever watched a video with an important soundtrack, I'm sure you wished you could somehow save only the audio. There are many times when you need to extract an MP3 file from the video — or when you want to separate sound from the screen recording. Fortunately, any online audio or video converter can get the job done.  

There are plenty of fancy online audio or video converters on the market, but not all of them have hit the right marks. And I'm not yet convinced to leave the video converter tool I've been using for the last 5 years: the free Notta online audio converter. 

Here's how to convert screen recording to MP3 with the help of third-party tools on Windows or Mac, iPhone, and even online. 

How to Convert a Video to MP3 on Windows/Mac? 

When it comes to converting any video to MP3, there are usually two critical things you need: any online audio converter tool and all the input formats — MP3, WAV, AAC, AIFF, M4A, AVI, FLV, MOV, and WMV — it supports. 

Notta Web App is one audio/video recorder, converter, and transcriber that can convert media files into the format you want. What I really love about the Notta Web App is its user-friendly interface.
