I recommend you use ffmpeg to strip and convert the ac3 to wav format.
For example to strip and convert the ac3 sound in "file.avi" and save
it to "file.wav":

ffmpeg -i file.avi -f wav file.wav

Check it out, http://ffmpeg.sourceforge.net/index.php

"FFmpeg is a complete solution to record, convert and stream audio and 
video. It includes libavcodec, the leading audio/video codec library."
