View Full Version : Program for Converting .amr to mp3???

Jan 7, 2006, 11:52 AM
Is there any program that allows you to convert an .amr file to an mp3 or aiff? I'm trying to get a recorded phone conversation on my computer and convert it. Can someone help me out? I tried google, but it seems like most of them are for windows. Thanks!

I typed .amr file into a google search, and the first 10 hits all came up with ways to convert .amr to .wav or something else that can be usable.


you might try the link above...
dunno how the sound quality will be, but if it's a phone conversation I would guess yer not expecting a symphony...

hope this helps

no need for new software since you're on a mac you already have Quicktime and iTunes, you can use it.

Open the file with Quicktime then save it as .mp4 then load your .mp4 file in you itunes library, on your library right click and select create an MP3 version, then all you have to do is right click the mp3 version and select reveal in finder..

Quicktime didn't work for me. But I was able to convert it with Audacity 1.3.12 (Beta) http://audacity.sourceforge.net. It's free and cross platform (Mac, Windows, Linux). For the Mac, carefully read the installation instructions. On Windows, I had to install FFmpeg and the LAME MP3 codec before it could read it and export it to an MP3.

Mac: OS X 10.6.4 (Snow Leopard)
Intel Core 2 Duo

PC: Windows 7
AMD Athlon x64

This one looks really easy. Basically converting .amr to .mp3 is the only function it has ;-) Hope this helps.
