Many times we want to extract audio from videos in order to listen to or to use in a project. FrostWire allows you to easily extract audio from videos.
1. Open FrostWire (if you don’t have FrostWire yet, download it for free on FrostWire.com). 2. Go to the Library. You need to have the video files on FrostWire Library. 3. Select the .mp4 video file(s). 4. Right click any of the selected video files and select the option “Extract Audio”
5. Wait for the audio extraction to complete. Now you have the audio of the video on the Audio section. If for some reason you don’t see the new extracted m4a files, press [F5] to refresh.
If you have any doubts we’ve also made an instructional video of how to extract audio from videos using FrostWire.
Lots of fixes for performance, stability and better user experience await on this new update. If you were having issues with YouTube search this release fixes these issues and others.

FrostWire is a free, open source BitTorrent client first released in September 2004, as a fork of LimeWire. It was initially very similar to LimeWire in appearance and functionality, but over time developers added more features, including BitTorrent support. In version 5, Gnutella support was dropped entirely, and FrostWire is only a BitTorrent client. Development of the program has been active since the program was first released in September 2004.
A new major release of FrostWire for Android (1.3.0) is finally out after 5 long months of coding and testing. Thanks to everyone supporting the project! be it with code, translations, spreading the word or sending donations, without you this release wouldn’t be possible.
The most important changes done in this release have a lot to do with the Bittorrent core engine, significant improvements in memory handling (less unexpected crashes due to out of memory errors, and the app should feel a lot snappier than 1.2.2 when you switch screens and scroll through search results) and lots of details related to user experience.
The entire BitTorrent core was replaced with the latest stable source code from the Azureus Project, during this integration we enabled a few features that we didn’t have before on Android, the most important ones being:
uTP support (which helps FrostWire deal better with packet congestion issues resulting in a better Internet experience on your phone/tablet, even while you’re downloading seeding)
DHT and Magnet support while on Wi-Fi. DHT/Magnet support was there but turned off as it doesn’t really work as expected when you are connected to the Internet via 3G/4G. After 1.3.0 we turn it on when you are connected on Wi-Fi networks, sort of a best-as-you-can approach.
Now that we have DHT/Magnet support, we’ve added several popular Torrent/Magnet search indexes, so you will be getting a lot more search results than before if you are connected to Wi-Fi. Some of the search engines now available are: TPB, Torrents.fm, Monova and Yify.
We’ve joined uTorrent in its initiaive to lower times while connecting to a swarm (which leads to faster downloads for everyone) and to avoid the possibility for a DDoS attack on swarms by implementing the BEP 040 proposal for “Canonical Peer Priority” when selecting what peers to connect to using a new peer prioritization algorithm.
User Interface/User Experience Improvements
The “Transfers” screen got a lot of love.
You can now paste a magnet URI or .torrent URI to start a transfer from it.
Magnet URI Support. FrostWire will now start magnet downloads if you click on a magnet on a web browser
Smart Pause/Resume transfer. If you move from a Wi-Fi connection to a 3G/4G network, FrostWire will take a look at your preferences and if you don’t want to use BitTorrent while on a mobile network, we’ll automatically pause those transfers for you, if you come back to any other Wi-Fi network we’ll automatically resume those transfers for you.
Transfers can now be filtered by their status (All, Downloading, Completed)
Updated icons and new buttons for context menus, the downward arrow we used to have was a bit confusing when compared to the “+” to expand multiple-file transfers.
Other user experience improvements include search result thumbnails (when available), making the search experience more intuitive and less Reading-Intensive if you recognize the thumbnail of what you are looking for.
FrostClick/FrostWire promotional images are now displayed the same way across all devices when you first open the app, please support these artists by downloading and seeding their free content, you might discover a favorite new artist to follow.
You can get FrostWire for Android 1.3.0 on Google Play or on our website

The first thing you will notice is our switch to flat-land design while still keeping our flavor.
A flat user interface means not using any gradients, this makes screen painting faster and more energy efficient, as well as less memory intensive.
Search now reveals a lot of search results you may have been missing.
FrostWire is a file type agnostic search tool for your mobile, on this release you will be able to see in real time the number of search results you get per file type (Audio, Video, Documents, Programs and Torrents)
We’ve also made a lot of upgrades under the hood that will make search feel faster and better than ever.
A few new search engines have been added to FrostWire’s smart meta search, and more are coming on further releases of the 1.2.x series.
Our first attempt at a navigation menu was ridden with bugs that have been solved with a completely new menu that comes on top from the left side.
Renewed Audio Player
The audio player screen got some love too, notice the new flat buttons, flat progress bar, and new long press gesture on the pause button to completely stop the current song being played.
On the top right there’s a menu with more options, including an option to delete the current track if you don’t like it, something you’d never be able to do with a iOS devices and iTunes.
Also, you can switch songs by swiping your finger to the left or right, and if you want to pause a song you can swipe down with 2 fingers.

Here’s a few things you can do with our completely re-designed and easy to use file sharing client and media player.
Improved search that integrates with the cloud.
Search results are faster than ever (instant in most cases) and not only you’ll have the most powerful BitTorrent Deep-Smart search featured in previous versions, now FrostWire integrates with popular cloud services where content creators from all over the world share millions of legally available files.
The fastest downloads ever on any FrostWire for Android.
Be it on Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G you will experience in most cases downloads that are so fast you won’t even see the progress bar begin to move, by the time the transfer screen is opened the file will already be on your device. Specially when sharing files with other FrostWire devices (PCs too) on the same Wi-Fi network.
Share files between phones, tablets and computers without any networking know-how
You don’t have to use cables or become a computer guru to share files between your phones, tablets or computers. We’ve also been working on FrostWire for desktop so that when you open FrostWire on your phone or computer you will be able to see every device automatically.
Just make files publicly available by opening padlock icons next to the files and every device running FrostWire will be able to download and even stream music or video from each other.
This makes it great for groups of people (work, school, home, party), now you only need to take only one photo and share it with everybody else next time you’re all connected to the same Wi-Fi hotspot.
Sending documents, music, family videos between your mobile, tablet or computer has never been easier or faster, best of all it doesn’t even matter what Operating system you’re running, Windows, Mac, Linux, it doesn’t matter, all you need is FrostWire and a Wi-Fi router. It just works.
World class Gesture Based Music Player
We’ve redesigned our music player for simplicity and convenience. FrostWire’s music player is the world’s first gesture based music player, we built it thinking of drivers in mind, no need to take your eyes off the road if you want to switch songs or pause/resume playback.
On this version we’ve introduced a beautiful new design with a 3D presentation of the album art currently being played. It also has functionality to share or un-share the file you’re currently listening to without having to browse or find the file on your device.
We’ve recreated the navigation system on the application, it now has a beautiful animated and responsive slide in menu that will take you anywhere in the app, with room for future functionality, and if you’re playing a song you will be able to see the album art of the song being played.
We’ve also implemented a custom “Back” history handler so that you can backtrack perfectly the screens you’ve navigated as you used the app. You now have random access navigation through the menu, and sequential access navigation through the Android’s back key.
We’ve added new controls to let you instantly filter your own files and see which are being shared on the Wi-Fi network and which aren’t in just one touch.
Install FrostWire on your Android and spread the word, the more the merrier, it’s absolutely free.
 FrostWire's Deep-Smart search uses the most popular torrent indexing services to fetch torrent files, then FrostWire opens these files and searches for the individual files indexed by the torrent. As FrostWire searches it remembers the files it's seen in the past to make your next searches instantaneous.
 Only on YouTube.com in 2012 it was announced users had shared over 4 million Creative Commons licensed videos. FrostWire also taps on SoundCloud.com, the internet's biggest sound and music community of content creators, bands, singers and DJs that pay to make their music available for free to the SoundCloud community. If you share your content on YouTube or SoundCloud you're automatically available to the millions of FrostWire users on both Desktop and Android. Integration with more popular cloud services to come in the next releases.

If you use your Android device as your car music player and you have nobody next to you it’s always dangerous to take your eyes away from the road to unlock the phone, tilt it the right way and eventually find the “Skip” button to change the song.
We decided to fix this issue by making the FrostWire audio player driver friendly.
When you are playing music on FrostWire it will prevent your Android from locking so it can receive gesture input during playback (the screen will go off but it will still receive input).
It’s very simple, swipe to the sides to change the song, or swipe down with two fingers to pause/resume playback.
