Hey, what up board. I'm having a problem with some audio files. Most of the music on my computer is saved to RealPlayer and they mostly only play through RealPlayer. I checked to see what kind of files they were and the majority of the audio files I have are MPEG-4 type files. I need to learn how I can convert these files or somehow change the file type from MPEG-4 to MP3 or some other widely supported file type. I can't stream the MPEG-4 files from my computer to my X-Box 360 and I can't load the files on my music production programs like Adobe Audtion and FL Studio 6. I would really appreciate the help if anyone has some advise or suggestions. Do I need a certain program in order to convert those audio files? Somebody pleeeeese help me out.

To convert the file type yes you will need a program to convert them... thou audio is not my strong suit I am sure there will be other members that will have suggestions for the program.

You can often find some free opensource programs on the internet.

I don't convert them at all.
I simply use Nero's "burn audio cd" function. After they're burnt to disk, they're in the standard cda format, no conversion software needed. I could rip them to mp3 from there but I'm not big on mp3 audio.
If you can record any audio coming through your sound card you can use VLC media player (it's free) to play the mpeg4's themselves and simply record as VLC plays. I use OpCommD2D for direct recording of audio but Audacity, another freebie, is popular as well.
