Max won't convert mp2 files :(

Hi. I love this app and use it to put all my music on my phone (as well as general ripping & converting of course) but it is lacking the ability to convert mp2 (m1a) files.

Are there any plans to add support for this file format. All radio programs recorded on Freeview (free to air digital tv in the uk) demux to mp2 and it would be great to be able to convert them to mp3. Even iTunes can do this with a bit of persuasion...! :wink:

Thanks
Alex

MAD (the MPEG decoder Max uses) supports MPEG-2. If you can point at a sample file I will see if can get it working.

Thanks for that. If I File > Convert Files the mp2 files are greyed out (can't select them) and if I try to drag & drop it just "pops back" and won't register.

Sample file at http://www.thedesignshop.biz/dl/Annie_N ... .04.12.mp2

Quite large at 164mb but didn't want to split it...

Oh and play won't play them or add them to it's library (even if I change the extension to mp3)...

I'm using latest stable version Max 0.8 and Play 0.3 (1071)

Cheers
Alex
