I have a 3 minute MP4 audio file that has a part I want to cut out using Audacity, but Audacity won't read MP4 video. So I want to convert it first.

Installed & tried one converter that I picked up as referral on another forum, but it's output was pure silence. Tried it several times & several ways.

Any recommendations ?

I reinstalled WinAmp and can find no way to use it to convert an MP4 file to MP3, or anything else.

An excerpt from the thread from the link above:

Quote:
It's probably also worth noting that you can only transcode to mp3 in Winamp Pro, because the mp3 encoder is locked in the free version :-(
This sounds like WinAmp Free won't do MP4 to MP3 transcoding. I wandered around and could still find no way to do it, even after reading the thread from the link.

my apologies...I had done a quick search at another forum on this subject and a person had made the comment at one point that both of the above would do the process for free...said comment came about during a war with a spammer who had repeatedly posted his product (a pay for version)..I am guilty of repeating another's words without verifying them...

dBpowerAMP has a 30 trial on their mp3 encoder...

I tried dbPowerAMP before I posted here. It appears to be able to do the conversion, but it's output is only silence. I used it about 4 different ways with the same result, that is why I am looking for something else.

Thanks,

Girderman

This should do the trick: https://media-convert.com/

Thank Mimo for that one!
