    Any programs you can suggest to convert (ideally bulk convert) mp4s to mp3s. I have a collection of music videos I bought for video DJing but its killing space on my HD and would love to turn them into mp3s.

    Are the mp4's m4p video files purchased from iTunes? If so, they are copy protected and you will have a difficult time transcoding them. Besides that, the H.264 compression Apple uses is already a pretty small file size in comparison to video quality. To go smaller you'd have to take a hit in resolution (size/dimensions) or overall quality of the video. Also, mp3 is an audio only format so converting would remove the video.

    I would recommend getting an external Hard Drive to store the video files and free up the space on your system drive. If all you are using it for is playback of H.264 video, a 500-750GB bus powered USB 2 drive should do the job just fine, be very portable, and relatively cheap.
