MKV video file to FLAC???

Hey Now!

I'd like to take one long .mkv video file and somehow, with the magic of software, turn that into individual FLAC files for listening only.

My expertise in this: practically none.

I isn't no moron so I'm sure I can figure out how to accomplish this but what I need is the software. I've tried googling the subject and came up with freeware that is limited in what it can do.

Is there the perfect free download out there to be able to get this done?
Can anyone help with this?

Re: MKV video file to FLAC???

If the mkv file has LPCM audio track, that'll be okay to put them to flac. If not, leave in original format.

First, you'll mkvextract to extract audio track from the video. Then you'll need a software that can split audio files.
My list:

Re: MKV video file to FLAC???

I use ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -i input.mkv output.wav

and then audacity to edit/split, and then flac to convert:

flac *wav

or if I'm lazy I just make one flac file with ffmpeg:

ffmpeg -i input.mkv output.flac
