If I am not mistaken then if you get version 2.24 (you can find it here: http://winamps.da.ru ) then just use the Disk Writer plugin and it will convert the .wma to .wav for you. (I think it is 2.24 but might be a few more back 2.22ish - 2.24ish)

Yes, I have 2.24 and have converted .wma files to .wav using the diskwriter output plugin. BUT: how can I use Winamp to convert streaming WMA files from the web to .wav (or anything else)? I tried changing the file associations of the .asx file types to winamp, but that didn't work (Winamp says: not a valid MPEG file). Any suggestions?

Cheers,

Ron

I just discovered a way to convert WMA files with the Microsoft WINAMP/WMA plug-in (in_wm.dll) version 1.00, from Winamp version 2.5 (and 2.6). First, download and install John Adcock's Output Splitter plug-in (it lets you use two output plug-ins at once) from http://www.adcock8.freeserve.co.uk/winamp.htm. Then open Winamp, go to Winamp Preferences/Plug-ins/Output, and double-click on "Split output plug-in". In the first box, make sure it says "Plugins\out_wave.dll". In the second box, type in the output plug-in of your choice (e.g. "Plugins\out_disk.dll", "Plugins\out_mp3.dll", or "Plugins\out_enc.dll"). Click on the Close button, close Winamp Preferences, and play the file(s) you want to convert. Once you're done, don't forget to switch back to your regular output plug-in (usually "Nullsoft waveOut plug-in" or "Nullsoft DirectSound plug-in"), or else you'll fill up your hard drive with copies of every song you play pretty quickly. (It's easy to forget, because you'll still hear your songs play while they're being copied to disk.)
Note that this only works with in_wm.dll up to version 1.0. It does not work with version 1.1 or higher.

Just to clarify, you can use this trick with the latest versions of Winamp (2.61-2.72), just so long as you use the in_wm.dll that came with an older version of Winamp. All you have to do is install the old version of Winamp (e.g. 2.5e), copy its in_wm.dll file to a temporary folder, reinstall Winamp 2.65, and then copy the old in_wm.dll back into your Winamp/Plugins folder overwriting the new in_wm.dll. Oh, and if I remember correctly, the in_wm.dll only came with the full versions of Winamp 2.5/2.6 (anyone care to verify for me?).

Addendum to my above post:
The above method is only necessary for converting DRM enabled (i.e. copy protected) WMA files. If the WMA file you want to convert isn't DRM enabled, then you can just use whichever output plug-in you like without bothering with the Output Splitter method (so long as you're using the 1.00 version of in_wm.dll--alternate output plug-ins won't work even for non-DRM enabled WMAs with any post-1.0 versions of in_wm.dll).

Also, check the "Where'd those plug-ins go?" thread in the Tech Support Greatest Hits forum for a link to the in_wm.dll from Winamp 2.5. If you just download it and unzip it to your Winamp/Plugins directory, you don't need to bother installing the whole of Winamp 2.5.

There is a program called MelodyCan with which all popular video formats can be converted to one another. You can try to google it.
