    Please bear with me as I know what I would like but have no knowledge of how to get there. I was sent a video file that I very much enjoy to the point that I would like to add the music as background music to a website. I tried to convert the .wmv file to a .mp3 file using FormatFactory but no luck. Should anyone know of a software program, preferably free, that would allow me to do this I would appreciate it very much. I may never have the need to do this again so I hate to spend money on a program. Also, if this cannot be done I would appreciate knowing so that I wont continue to waste anymore time trying to do this. I have very little experience in doing file conversions so please keep that in mind should you reply. As always I appreciate all replies and would thank you in advance.

    I generally try Google as the first place to pose this type of question - Google convert+wmv+mp3+free. There seem to be a number of options. No idea of the preferred one, but a little reading should provide some indications.

    Try MediaCoder. I do not know whether it can specifically do .wmv to .mp3, but it has an impressive array of transcoding support. It is also free. I am sure it will suffice for all your transcoding needs.

    Play the video and record the sound with an microphone through the Microsoft Windows built in Sound Recorder and save the file as an .wav file.

    Then convert the .wav file to .mp3 format Online for Free

    You had the keywords John. Including audio would've yielded ;) appropriate results.
