How convert m4a to mp3

So, you got an M4a file and you would like to convert it into an mp3? Or are you maybe looking for a m4a to mp3 converter?
First we need to understand what an m4a file really is, before you can convert m4a to mp3. Essentially M4A is an audio file format that makes use of your stock standard MPEG4 compression codec. This is exactly the same compression that comes in the MP4 video file format, except that it doesn't contain a video track.
Just looking for a converter and don't want to bother with the details? Remember, It's always wise to understand what you are working with before looking for the tools. After this article is complete you should be able to make an informed decision on exactly what tool you require, and I will also recommend a great tool for you to use.
What plays M4A files?
M4A files can be played with iTunes, QuickTime Player KSP Sound Player Microsoft Windows Media Player and a number of other media players.
iTunes songs come in the M4A format. To play M4A files with mp3 only players you need to convert m4a to mp3 by using an M4a to mp3 converter.
Be careful of getting a tool that will only convert m4a to mp3 and no other file types. Chances are you will want to make other sorts of conversions as well so it saves you a lot of time to invest it a multi purpose audio converter just in case.
Therefore you should consider one music converter software that is designed to convert M4A to MP3 in a short amount of time that should also l also convert most popular video formats to MP3.
Consider some of the following formats when hunting for the m4a converting tool that you need:
AVI Video (*.avi), MPEG Video (*.MPEG, *.MPG, *.MP4, *.M1V, *.M2V, *.M1P), Windows Media Video(*.ASF, *.WMV, *.ASX, *.WAX, *.WM, *.MWA, *.WMD, *.WMP, *.WMX, *.WVX, *.WPL).

Im trying to convert a QCP file to an MP3 file. I have a conversion program but it seems to be damaging the file, not full play time of the song/file and bad quality. how can I make this work?


Rename the file to .WAV (change the .QCP extension to .WAV) then you can either play the WAV file itself OR convert the WAV file (for free) with CDex.
