I've got an mp4 in QuickTime which has been split into several clips.

How do I export these separately as audio tracks?

1 Answer 1


File Menu > Duplicate [Cmd/Shift/s]
Delete extra clips.
File Menu > Export > Audio Only... will save as .m4a

Repeat for each clip.

Tedious, but the best I can figure...

  • That exports the entire mp4. It doesn't export the separate clips.

  • Changed answer to include splitting out each clip.

  • Tedious but does the job.

  • I would say this is 'almost' optimal. My solution involves a little bit more nuance than trimming each one after copying. If you split and then cut the split clips over to a new file, you don't have to redo everything every time. apple.stackexchange.com/a/340226/160704 Oct 21, 2018 at 17:48
