says who?

the video has a seperate audio- and video-stream
if hwat you are saying would be true options line -an
for skip the audio stream of a video would be impossible

ffmpeg -i yourvideo -f mp3 -acodec libmp3lame youraudio.mp3

even the other direction works but while technically nothing
is easier than take the audio-stream and convert it to whatever
while ignore the video you need a image-loop for the length
of your target video - been there, done that, implementation
in a php-cli-wrapper took around 1 hour
