Convert MPEG4 to MP3

Hello Community,

 

I have around 1,000 songs in Itunes that are in the  MPEG4 ( non protected).   Widows media won't play it. I want to get the songs in a format that Windows media can play.   Can itunes convert the format to MP3 or do i need a different tool?  Any suggestions on conversion tools that can take 1,000 songs and convert them all in one process?

 

Thanks,

Hey garouk,

 

I'm not sure how easily iTunes can process large batches of files, but it can certainly convert a number of file types into MP3s without any additional software.  Instructions on how to do so can be found on Apple's support site or through the link I've provided below.

I hope this helps you out!

I am curious as to what Windows OS you are using and the version number of Windows Media Player you are using. It would be MUCH easier to just get the MPEG4 Codec from Microsoft then having to do mass amounts of song conversions. I can link you to the download but i need to know the OS and Media player versions to be sure i link you to the correct codec package.

Re: Convert MPEG4 to MP3

Here is the link to the needed codec package. From your options listed on the page select the K-Lite Codec Pack 5.1.0 STANDARD and you should be good to go after installing it. The codec pack i was thinking of from MS was for MPEG4 or .MP4 files which is video. These codecs are well respected 3rd party codecs for the .m4a, .m4b, .m4p and .m4r formats apple uses for audio files
