MP4 to MP3 Converter is fine when it works; that just doesn't happen nearly as often as you'd like. The program falls victim to random crashes more often than it actually converts your files to a new format. That, the limited file support, and the frequent add-ons during the install make this program a tough sell.
This program takes MP4 video files and turns them into listenable MP3 audio files. That is, when it works. The program crashed more than half of the times we tested it, usually any time we tried to use a file that was more than one minute in length -- which are most of the files you'll use with this program, since it's a great way to turn music videos into audio files. It was even more annoying that the program didn't give any status updates as it was working its magic, so we never knew if it was going to crash. The program, itself, is just a basic menu that lets you put a file in and then determine where you want the eventual output file to live. You can't choose any format other than MP3 for output, and you can't send files that aren't MP4 at the program. When you're installing MP4 to MP3 Converter, it will try to get you to install four other programs that could take over your browser and search.
That doesn't help a program that was already not doing itself any favors in the performance category. Even though it's a fine converter, too many other programs can do everything it does and more. They all do it without the frequent crashes, as well.
MP4 to MP3 Converter converts MP4 to MP3 with prefect audio quality. After installing the software, you need to select MP4 file you want to convert. Other fields will be completed automatically (you can change them if you want to). Click 'Convert' and software will do the rest.
Main features: You can drag & drop desired MP4 file at program icon and after that you only need to press Convert to start conversion. Program supports the following bitrates: 64, 96, 128, 160, 192, 256 and 320 kbit/s. The default is 192. After conversion is finished you will be asked to: 'Open created MP3 file', 'Open containing folder' or 'Convert other file'. Program supports Unicode characters in file names and paths. It converts very fast around 1-10 seconds for 1 minute of audio (depends on CPU speed). Program also supports creating of MP3 files from of other well known media formats like: .avi .mkv .m4a .mp3 .mp4 .swf .flv .flac .ape .mov .mpg .mpeg .aac .wav .webm .wma .wmv.
