Re: Program To Convert AAC to MP3?

SSamadhi corrects me again....

Thanks for the correction of terms, sometimes I do get those MPEG numbers screwed up. Yes, I know that it's only one isolated test there, and that the two were close, but I thought it was a relevant link to show that there are more than just Apple's version of AAC and that there are noticable quality differences between them. Nero's may very well be better now, but it's important to realize that AAC is not owned by iTunes and that you can work with AAC files in other programs. You don't need to chain yourself down to Apple's software.

Re: Program To Convert AAC to MP3?

Yeah, sorry about that.

btw thisistoto there's one important rule about converting aac to mp3 (and about converting files from one lossy format to another): Don't do it.

The only situation in which it might be somewhat acceptable is if you want to play the file on a device that absolutely does not support the original file format.

No prob SS, no need to apologize .

And yeah, I agree, unless you're somehow needed to play something or a portable with no support for AAC, don't ever, ever convert from lossy to lossy. Are you going to let us in on why you're attempting to make this transition?

Maybe just for storing it on an MP3 player (iPod)?
