    M4a to MP3


    I would like to do the above conversion for some old songs so I can get them on my MP3. I could not download the conversion software on to my HP mini which is run on Open SUSE.

    I tried on my MAC. The software got downloaded alright, but when I open the file -- hmm....its meant for Windows run computers-- all I can see is a whole string of undecipherable codes in the download!!

    Can anyone suggest a workable software to do the conversion successfully? Pls.
    Thanks guys.

    Install mplayer from your package manager and do it on the console.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your quick response.

    However, I need help as I cannot locate the package mgr on my computer. I went to "All Applications" to look for it, but unfortunately did not see Package Mgr anywhere! Did I look in the wrong place?

    Thanks.

    You package manager ist that program responsible for installing applications to your computer. On OpenSUSE, e.g., you can install software with Yast.

    Hello!

    I use a program called "sound converter". It has a nice GUI. I just drag the file to convert and set properties to convert to mp3 and everything is done in less than 20 seconds per song at the average. FWIW
