    I need to convert MP4 and MPG files to MP3 (or maybe AAC?) so I can play them on my iPod Shuffle. Does anyone know how I can do that? Initially I used EasyWMV to convert the SWF files to MP4 and MPG but now I can't find anything that will convert them to MP3.

    Any ideas will be greatly appreciated! :)

    Thanks

    So... videos without the video? As you wish. :confused:

    Just use QuickTime to extract the audio stream and export it as an AIFF. Then use iTunes to convert it into an AAC file.

    I always liked this one:

    http://www.ecamm.com/mac/free/

    The software has separate apps for both MP3 and AAC, so you can decide which one to use. I prefer AAC.

    Hey thanks for all your ideas for doing this. Those free tools at ecamm.com look pretty cool and I might need their Call Recorder for another project.

    Thanks again.

    Here is another good tool named Pavtube Video Converter for Mac u can try. It is free to convert SWF, MP4 or MPG to mp3 or aac directly. And mp3 is a better choice for your ipod. It is very easy to use for newbies.
