ffmpeg -i infile.ext -ss starttimecode -t timecodeofduration outfile.wav


ffmpeg -i 12345.mpg -ss 00:30:00.00 -t 00:00:15.00 ringtone.wav

Would give you a 15 second wav at the 30 minute mark.

add -acodec nameofaudiocodec and change the extension if you need
another audio codec or container format.
