Converting M3U to MP3?

Hi,

I would so grateful if someone could tell me how to convert M3U files to MP3.

I am unable to find a single utility on the web for this.

Many thanks in advance.

The m3u file doesn't contain any data, it's just a playlist, it points to mp3 files.

Surely you must have realised this when the M3U file is like a couple of K in size...

There really isn't a way to "convert" an M3U file into an MP3 as the M3U is just a link.

If you still have access to the M3U file, you can still use it to find and save the MP3 it links to. To do so, right-click on the link that opens the M3U and tell the computer to "Save Target As" onto the desktop.

When the M3U is finished saving, open up NotePad or WordPad and drag the file M3U file onto it (this will open it). Inside of the M3U file, you will find the link to the MP3 that it was meant to stream.

Just highlight and copy this URL and then paste it into your browser's address bar. That should take you to the MP3 that you were looking for.

That is a neat trick. Never thought of doing that.

All is not lost, you can still get your music into an mp3 file. Capture the music file with a program called "Audacity", then export the file as an mp3, wav or ogg. Then use another program called "Switch" to convert it further to a CDA, for instance.

Actually M3U can be a streaming MP3 file, rather then a playlist, it's used a lot for radio-webcasts.

convert m3u to mp3

Hi there SiH,

Converting m3u files to mp3 files CAN be done - I am very proud of myself. Having never done anything like that before (actually until tonight I hadn't even [I]seen[I] an m3u file extension name, I googled and found this site http://en.kioskea.net/faq/sujet-339-...3u-to-mp3-file I then downloaded the program and converted the files and put them in My Music file. Being a 48 yr old female (as my user name implies), I thought I was quite clever! This kind of 'thing' is not usually up my alley so as my original 'google' had found your question, thought it only right that I should find 'you' again and reply. Good luck.

no its not, its a playlist that points your web stream to where the real mp3 is at, as per the notes inserted above by cpemma

M3U's to MP3

It is simple to do this... much simpler than I figured it to be!!!
Just save the list to your desktop for easy access in the M3U format.
Then open your Windows Media Player. Choose File, Open, desktop, and the file then as it is playing, you can then sync the Now playing files to your MP3 player device.

Or whatever your next step is.

I hope this helps!

The same file can be imported repeatedly, but its output formats can be different. Thus, users can receive a series of different audio files even thought they have only one source file.

flac to mp3 software
