Help.....MP4 to MP3 converter
« on: March 18, 2009, 09:06:10 PM »
Dudes and dudesses,

I need to convert some of my Ipod music (MP4) to another music player (MP3).

Anyone know of a way to do this without paying silly prices for software?

Thanks in advance my muckas,

If you've purchased the iTunes Plus version of the songs, you can use the iTunes software and save them as MP3s.

Nick FWIW I'm using ffmpeg for most of my multimedia conversion chores. If your on a mac or using some open-source operating system, that's the way to go. If you're using ms windows i reckon there is a prebuilt binary, although I've never tried that.

Thanks, but that just sounded like noise to me  :D

IS a  "prebuilt  binary" a medical condition?

I'll rephrase that then. Super, along with one of ffmpeg or mencoder should do. There are more user-friendly options out there but these are the most comprehensive and high quality free ones I know off. :tu: (disclaimer: I've only used these tools on bsd and linux, so don't blame me if they set your pc on fire and make your dog bark all night long :))

Happy encoding. :)

Several solutions are available for the conversion to MP3.

Are you usings a PC or a MAC?

Your answer depends on the solution, I have not found one s/w that will handle both.

The generic term to search for is " DRM converter "

I have an iMac and just converted ALL my iTunes Playlists of purchased songs this past  Sunday.

I used:

AppleMacSoft DRM Converter software - it is the legal way to convert iTunes DRM protected files to unprotected music files. It is a DRM copy-protected audio and music converter designed for burning DRM protected music to a special virtual CD-RW drive where you can easily get unprotected MP3, AAC, Apple Lossless, AIFF, WAV files ready for use on any player.

AppleMacSoft DRM Converter uses a CD-RW and iTunes itself to convert all of your DRM music files to standard format files (MP3, AAC, Apple Lossless, AIFF, WAV) that you can use with iPod player.
With AppleMacSoft DRM Converter you can create MP3, AAC, Apple Lossles, AIFF, or WAV files from your DRM files.

Dudes and Dudess,

I went with Nuphoria's idea, and that seems OK.

SO thanks all for the help,

(Damn evil computers  >:()
