Howto rip the audio from a video clip

Recently I came across a video clip that I wanted to rip the audio from. Easy enough (and fast!) using mencoder:

mplayer -novideo -ao pcm:file=output.wav input_file.avi Then if you want to convert said wave file into an mp3 or ogg file: lame -b 64 -a output.wav new_output.mp3 oggenc --downmix -b 64 output.wav -o new_output.ogg

How about piping? mkfifo sound cat sound | oggenc -o soundtrack.ogg - & mplayer dvd://1 -dvd-device /dev/hdc -vo null -ao pcm:file=sound

That totally works too. There are several different ways to do it. I think my way above is a little clearer, but they both work. Pipes make more sense if you're going to have LOTS of data that you don't want sitting on your disk you want it processed in a chain.
