hi, salooners!

I am just wondering how to go about creating a tool that extracts audio data from videoclips like mp4's using java. I have browsed through
the Java sound api to get some inspiration, and Google's part, but has no redeeming name. Is there anyone who is or has been involved in a similar project?
Any tip, links or enlightening hints will be very much appreciated.

If you can use QuickTime for Java (which limits you to platforms supporting QuickTime: OS X and Windows), then it's pretty easy to save the audio as an AIFF or WAV file.

On OS X, you can add QuickTime support for other formats through Perian and Flip4Mac.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
