WMA files

Post by glaucon1 » Mon Feb 06, 2006 4:59 pm

Hi, I have an Olympus WS-100 digital voice recorder that makes WMA files which open automatically in windows media player.

But I want to edit these files and can't put them into GarageBand or iMovie. I was hoping that Max Audio could convert my voice files into a format I can use.

Any suggestions?

I will do some investigation and see if there is an open source library for processing WMAs...

[later on..]

I found xmms-wma. I will check it out.

I have the same problem as Glaucon1. I have been using Switch http://www.nch.com.au/switch to convert from WMA to MP3, but then I only convert speech recordings, so I don't know about the quality of music conversion.

I did not use this application myself, so I cannot tell if it is a reliable product, but the shareware "EasyWM" ($10) converts WMA to several other audio formats.
It will not convert DRM protected files and it does not support wma lossless and wma voice codecs.
