I recently purchased a concert video on iTunes and am wondering if there is a way I can convert it to audio so I can have the tracks in my music library. I had done this years ago but it was with a dvd instead of m4v.
There is software that will record whatever is playing through your soundcard (I use Roxio Creator). There is software that will 'rip' the audio from a video file, as well, I'm sure.

I don't know if it's standard in other software, but the video editing suite AVS4YOU come with just such a feature.
Reaper supports most video codecs - you can import the video file in and then just render the audio as a .wav, .mp3 or whatever you want.
Actually, there are many online apps can do the video to audio conversion for your, such as zamzar, Acethinker Video Converter, mediaconverter, etc. They are totally free, and you don't have to download or install anything.
Here's how you can do it in Audacity (for free). First, I am assuming you are using a Windows based OS. I am not familiar at all with Mac systems. In Audacityy, go into "Edit" then "Preferences". On the "Host" menu choose "Windows WASAPI then on the "Playback" menu choose "Speakers (7-USB Audio CODEC)" and on the "Recording" menu choose the same thing. Hit "OK". now play your video and hit record on Audacity. It will make an audio copy. This works with a lot of sources.

If it is iTunes then maybe try Quicktime, I know it can play OS X files and then you can export to mp3. VLC can also pretty much export any file to any other file, you'll have to check their tutorials on it.
