this should work(not tested so i'm not sure)

m4p plug-in
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....&highlight=m4p

then use the mp3 encoder output plugin to output mp3 files

just at a note.... you will loose quality because your transcoding between a lossy format and another lossy format.
so don't expect perfect quality.


or you can have a go at this program

Convert protected music to MP3 File with Virtual CD-RW burning software

Normally, you can burn the protected music files to CD-R/RW disc. then rip them back to MP3.

It cost some CD-RW discs and has a low speed, there is also a software named "NoteBurner" from http://www.noteburner.com can help to convert protected music to MP3 File by using a virtual CD-RW burning method. It automatically integrated the above two steps.

I tried NoteBurner(http://www.noteburner.com). It worked perfectly on my computer. NoteBurner burns music onto a virtual CD-R. I cannot tell any difference between the original and converted music in terms of the music quality. And I would agree that NoteBurner is super faster and reliable.

m4p to mp3

TuneRaft (tuneraft.com) may do it just fine. It may even convert several files at a time. AFAIK there are no competitors with similar features and for similar price.
Moreover if you are an iPod freak like me, you may copy all converted music to your device in one click - that's a pleasant bonus

re: TuneRaft

Thanks, xmike! TuneRaft is right stuff!
It really works with any protected media just fine (at least for what I checked). I also tried it on WMA files from Yahoo Music - works again. The idea is great - whatever you can play on your PC, could be converted to regular MP3 - thumbs up!

some unquotable freeware software (forbidden by forums rules) allows to do this (or to convert with all the orginal tags in .aac/.m4a format)

I think its lovely that the board tells us tat a url is submitted by a user BUT WHY DOES IT MAKE IT SO WE CANT CLICK IT!!!!?!?!?!? and i cant find any references to not being able to post links in rules or FAQ, AND, it seems some people can submit urls, because some of them show up, and as far as i know they are users... What the hell is wrong with this board!, and why cant i find anyone else who seems to think this is a problem?, i registered for this board because i thought that maybe being able to click links was a feature of being a member, but APPARENTLY NOT. Also, if there isnt a way around it, and people know aout it ans are OK with it, WHY DO THEY KEEP POSTING LINKS THAT THEY KNOW WILL BE BLOCKED!!!?!?!?!?!?

sorry. im just really frustrated right now.

It's a spam-guard protection that's in place for any forum member that is still listed as "Junior Member", to prevent them from posting crap and spam (as ex-forums member liliar did above, and was subsequently banned). Now, once you go above 50 posts here, your status changes from "Junior Member" and you are able to post links that can in fact be seen/be clickable.

But... if you see a URL submitted by user non-clickable/spam-guard protected link in any post at these forums, all you need to do is click on the "quote" button at the bottom of that post -->
You can then view the quoted text, in which case the actual link will be revealed, and you can then access the URL after it's revealed to you.

Because there is a way around it and they know they can "quote" the post and access the URL (in the manner I already indicated above).

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.

other than these programs you can burn an audio cd (within itunes) and then open the audio cd in winamp (pro version only for mp3) if you dont have the pro version you can program windows media and realplayer to rip as mp3 (not as good of a quality though) it all depends on how many songs you have if you have 21 go ahead and make a audio cd and rip from there if you have 200 may want to use the programs listed

I am using TunePat TunePat which also applies virtual technology for burning protected music. Although it is not as famous as NoteBurner, it is an excellent protected music converting tool in all respects concerning the user interface, converting speed, output file quality, etc. Highly recommended!

converting m4p to mp3

To convert m4p to mp3 you can use the following media convertor:
http://www.tuneraft.com/
It converts both protected and unprotected audio/video files and is very easy to use.

MelodyCan will convert ALL video formats (do not care is it protected content or not) that you can play with Windows Media player, iTunes player or Apple Quick Time. Media copy protection will be removed after convertion.
