Saving separate audio from DOT flv file

I recorded an audio only broadcast using uStream and wanted to use the audio in a podcast after editing. I usually use Audacity to edit audio and could not import the flv format into Audacity 1.13beta directly using Windows Vista.

I search Google but the suggested solutions using VLC command line seemed to be Linux specific, but they triggered me into looking at VLC more carefully and found that using VLC 1.1.7 [ ] I can save the file from within VLC using "right-Click/Save/" and selecting "Profile Audio/mp3"

I am noting this here as I could be helpful to others.
