Thumbs up What is WMA? How to convert DRM protected WMA to MP3?

sponsored links

The following article is going to share with you what is WMA, how to convert WMA to MP3 with iTunes and how to convert DRM protected WMA to MP3 for iPod/iPhone using a protected WMA to MP3 converter - [b]Protected Music Converter[/b]. [img]***********[/img]

[b]What is WMA?[/b]

WMA stands for Windows Media Audio. A proprietary audio format owned by Microsoft, part of Microsoft's Windows Media technology. Encapsulated in an ASF container, WMA has one ability that seems to attract more and more businesses and allows this format to stick around. That's the easy inclusion of DRM or Digital Rights Management directly into the WMA file.

WMA files ripped from your CDs will not have DRM, so they can be converted. Legally downloaded WMAs should be DRM protected, and therefore not convertible to other formats. However, if you want to play DRM protected WMAs on your iPod, iPhone or other mobile players (for personal use only), you can get a DRM removal tool ( read the best DRM removal software review[img]***********[/img] ) to remove DRM from protected WMA and at the same time convert it to MP3 or other format.

[b]How to convert WMA to MP3?[/b]

If the WMA files you are going to convert are unprotected, you just select and drag them into iTunes Library and they should be automatically converted to whatever iPod format you selected in iTunes preferences for importing.

[b]Note:[/b] Before importing WMA files into iTunes, you need to choose "MP3 Encoder" as shown below:
