Editors' Review

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.

    "Malware! Shame on CNET for hosting this download"

    February 13, 2014   |   By former_download_cnet_user

    Version: MP4 To MP3 Converter 1.4

    Pros

    Absolutely none

    Cons

    I too never got to the actual program because of all the malware that it started installing even though I declined to proceed it still installed crap that uninstall would not remove nor would recovering to a previous restore point. Spent about an hour trying to go through and find the files that it created and executables that it added to start up in order to manually fix.

    Summary

    Don't install it and CNET remove this garbage from your downloads

    "good but can be better"

    December 25, 2013   |   By RestOfLifeZ

    Version: MP4 To MP3 Converter 1.4

    Pros

    convert mp4 file to mp3 as I want it

    Cons

    i think program should check the bitrate of audio inside mp4 file and propose bitrate of the same value. i mean program always set it 192 kbps by deafult even if audio inside file is only 64. so output file can be larger than it should be. so i need to think about bitrate by myself, but i'm too lazy to do so. program should do it automatically.

    the program itself don't have any popUps as menstion by rewievers. but yeah i remeber that installer propose some adware installation. be carefull during installation process (as you always do i hope).

    Summary

    good program but too simple and don't have some obvious functionality except MP3-2-MP4 converting with chosen bitrate. author should make new version with proposed features.

    "Annoying Pop-ups, difficult to uninstall."

    December 21, 2013   |   By 3NetForCnet

    Version: MP4 To MP3 Converter 1.4

    Pros

    It did convert a small mp4 file into a much larger mp3 file.

    Technically, it got the job done.

    Cons

    One of the most annoying and difficult pieces of software I've dealt with.

    I had to find a way to stop the pop-up ads (and no, I'm not talking about pop-ups while using the program- this was days after). I'm just minding my own business and wham! Pop-up. Closed. Back to business and Wham! Closing it. WHam! Pop-ups.

    I had to download Revo Uninstaller just to get rid of the program, because the default uninstaller would not do this at all.

    Summary

    (See "Cons". Don't ignore the "Cons". I'm telling you not to ignore the fact that these pop-ups will make you feel lose a little faith in humanity. Such a good idea for a program. Ruined by pop-ups and impossible uninstillation.)

    Have a good day (you'll have a better one if you leave this download alone).

    "Work as expected"

    December 18, 2013   |   By FazerR01

    Version: MP4 To MP3 Converter 1.4

    Pros

    - Convert MP4 (downloaded from Youtube) to MP3 as expected
    - Convert correctly every MP4 I tried to
    - Pretty simple interface
    - Encode fast
    - Allows to choose output bitrate
    - Looks like it converts other formats as well. It converted AVI and MKV files which I have successfully.

    Cons

    - Supports only one file at a time
    - It supports drag & drop on program shortcut, but don't support drag & drop to program window (which is pretty common now) and must be done in next version I think
    - Installer contains toolbar install offer, don't forget to skip it!

    Summary

    Works good for this kind of program. If you need to convert several MP4 files to MP3, you can use it.
