converting protected wma files

Recommended Posts

If you have a duplex soundcard you could playback the .wma in your media player and record on your sound recorder, save as .mp3...????

There are a few other ways I'm sure, ??????

actually, anyone just recommend good ways just to convert wma's to mp3's?

i've got about 300 hours of wma's but none of it can go on my mp3 player.... pain in the arse!

Where the hell did you get "protected" wma from?

Load it into winamp, go into preferences, "output", select "disk writer" and then this will dump the audio to a .wav file, which you can then re-encode as a mp3 or whatever you like.

Don't know what the hell possesses people to put it in WMA form anyway.

Are those cymbals or a box of Frosties I'm hearing?

because a lot of people have windows medai player as their media player !

you try outputting MP3's from WMA without buying some xtra, or spending days trawling for a free / cracked xtra...

Just set the encoding to a decent rate (stops vocals and cymbals sounding like imploding crisp packets) and don't put "use only on this PC" in the prefs.
