Thread: Finding converter for audio in non-mp3, wma formats

  1. #1

    Surprised/Amazed

    I've been looking for a freeware converter for .dat to .mp3 and .rm (but audio only) to mp3
    and i've had no luck, i've seen a few that costs me $40, but shouldn't there be a freeware that does this? or at least a converter on BT or something.
    Please help me find this converter.

    p.s. i don't mean wma to mp3 and mp3 to wma converters. I mean converters for audio files in other formats or audio in video formats, e.g. .dat to mp3 or .avi to mp3 or .rm to mp3 ... etc

    i use winamp myself to do that, you need an input plugin for non default formats, like the tara plugin for real formats, and the diskwrite or LAME output plugin.

    dbpoweramp should be able to do it, just get the appropiate codecs from their site

    Seconded. I wasnt aware DAT was an audio file. Isnt that just a Kazza temporary file?

    though unlikely, it could also be media from a VCD

    yeah, it is the media from VCDs, i got a lot of music VCD from a few years back.

    thanks for the dbpoweramp suggestion, it's a great software, especially that it looks like freeware. It can convert realmedia files after a plugin, but can still only play .dat files rather than convert them. Still, it does half the job.
