Q: "As a business man who is a frequent traveler around the world, I have a lot of time to spend on the way. The view along the way no matter on high speed train or other transportation is good, but my favorite way to relax is to listen to some audio news that are extracted from videos. This allows me to be connected to the world and aware of what's happening. I usually download a lot of news such as CNN, BBC etc in my PC (most of them are .MOV files), how can I make them audio (I prefer uncompressed WAV format) and allow me to listen to them on my iTunes more easily?"

A: Generally speaking, videos with file extension name MOV can be converted to WAV audio files via software or online converter. In the following section, I will show you several ways to convert MOV to WAV.
