Hi, I'm in the process of organizing, backing up, optimizing cloud access, and converting to cross-platform compatible filetypes of about 10 years' worth of photos (plus syncing for auto backup of future photos), 10 years' worth of non-multimedia documents, and a lifetime of music files.
This post concerns the latter of the aforementioned. A few years back, I uploaded all my favorite songs from a lifetime of CDs onto my windows platform. Over the next few years I switched back and forth once from windows media player to itunes and finally ended up to where I am now- switching to android (Nexus 6P currently, first switch back from iDevices- 2014) and purchasing a Nexus 6P without realizing there is no expandable memory.
... which is fine because I like the Amazon Music Cloud and Amazon Music service, in general.
However, 826 of my 4,000 songs are not of compatible file types for the Amazon Music Cloud (which are .mp3 and .m4a).
-What is a good program for mass conversion of audio files (obviously a queue function is desired)?
-Does .mp3 or .m4a offer a better cross-platform functionality, for optimization of possible platform changes in the future?
-Although my media players display track information just fine, some of the actual files were backed up from my iPod_control file when switching over to android and are saving as humanly incomprehensible letter sequences, is there a program to simplify changing the files to where they display more user-friendly filenames and more accurate track info?
