    I know there’re many such programs, but too complicated. I need to choose between many different Profiles, which confuse me a lot. I just need to convert mp4 files downloaded to mp3, so I can play them with my mp3 player on my way to company. Who can recommend me such a program, can output mp3 files and no complicated functions?

    Do you mean mp4 video files, or do you mean m4a or m4p audio files (e.g. the AAC format iTunes prefers)?

    As long as the MP4/AAC files are not protected (that is, DRM, like the Apple iTunes Store), then iTunes is enough.

    iTunes Menu -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Importing

    Import using MP3 encoder (change this setting).

    Now highlight any song you want to convert, and select Advanced -> Convert Selection to MP3. iTunes will make a copy of the song in MP3 format.

    Again, does not work for protected songs.

    I always use MP4 Converter on, easy-to-use, but not just converts mp4 to mp3, u may want to consider this program, I think it’s good, worth the money. Maybe others can recommend some more simple program to just convert mp4 to mp3.
