If you have a stock of WMA files, you might find them a bit difficult on some modern devices. They are certainly not as versatile as MP3 & # 39; s. The best way to solve that specific problem is to learn how to convert WMA to MP3 ̵
You can use many online and offline converters, but we have our favorites. Here's how you can use them to make your music collection so much easier to listen to.
Step 1: Go to Cloud Convert
The fastest and easiest way to convert a WMA file to an MP3 file is to convert an online converter use. There are some great, but favorite for this specific task is Cloud Convert. Get your WMA files ready and then go to the homepage.
Step 2: Upload your files
To send your files to Cloud Convert to start the conversion process, select Select files . Or select the down arrow next to that button for a larger number of options. Use the drop-down menu to choose whether you want to add files from your computer, send them from your cloud storage service, or simply link via a URL.
Depending on your choice, you will be asked for the files in question from their respective location. Follow the instructions on the screen.
Step 3: Choose your file format options
Now that you have uploaded the file that you want to convert, you must choose the format to which you want to export. In our case that is MP3. Look for the format icon next to the file you choose; there should be WMA . Select it and then select Audio from the drop-down menu, followed by MP3 . If you want to choose a different format in the future, look it up in that list, or if you convert a video to a visual format in the video Video .
For more advanced options, use the key icon. This allows you to adjust the bit rate of your output file, the start and end points of your conversion and a few other options.
Step 4: Convert and download
When you feel you have set all options correctly, look at the bottom of the page. If you want to transfer the resulting MP3 to your Dropbox or alternative cloud storage provider, select the appropriate button. If that is not the case, then select the large red button Start conversion . You will see the screen update with a time scale and loading bar for your conversion.
Once the conversion is complete, a green button appears Download . Select it to start the download. If you prefer to download the file as an archive, such as a Zip or Rar file – useful if you have converted many WMA files at once – select Create archive or use the drop-down list to Select a preferred format .
Alternative method: MediaHuman (Windows / MacOS)
If you need to convert many files, it may be easier to download a converter than to use a website such as Cloud Convert. The free MediaHuman converter can easily convert all your WMA & # 39; s to MP3 & # 39; s.
The software is extremely easy to use, even if you are not a technical wizard. Simply navigate to the MediaHuman site, download the program for your operating system and install it on your system. Once opened, you can drag and drop files from your computer to the program or click on the large "+" button in the top left corner and select the appropriate files.
After you have selected the desired files, select MP3 to convert from the codecs drop-down list and click the Convert button at the top of the window; it looks a bit like the universal recycling board. Within a few seconds (or minutes, depending on the number of files you have selected and their size), your conversion is complete.
To access the converted files, go to the File menu from the MediaHuman app and select Open the output folder . This automatically opens the destination folder where your completed files – in this case MP3 & # 39; s – are saved. From there you can add the files to the library of your favorite media player or upload them directly to an external device.
