    Do you want to extract the audio from the movie? If so, I don't know if you can do it with VLC, but you can do it with mplayer.

    Code:
    $ mplayer -dumpaudio -dumpfile audio.mp3 movie.avi

    Ah, you want to cut out a certain part of a movie? Then I guess you could use avidemux.

    Thanks.
    If you click on the 'view' tab on vlc and then tick 'advanced controls' you will now see a record button on the player.

    +1 Avidemux, may be worth a check for you. You can save video or audio tracks separately from the menu options.

    The most basic way to accomplish this is to use the video/audio capture tool native to vlc. Go to View --> Advanced Controls and you will see the 'Record' button, I have attached a screenshot to show this exactly. Hope this is what you are after?

    I am not sure where the default location is (perhaps $HOME) but you can certainly decide for yourself where to place the resulting files by placing a location in Tools --> Preferences --> Input & Codecs --> Files --> Record Directory or Filename and browse for a suitable place.

    Bear in mind there are many other methods to accomplish the same end but certainly this is the quickest and certainly achieves reasonable results.
