iTunes [Oct. 21st, 2003|11:05 pm]

I played with Apple's music store earlier today.

How can I convert .m4p files (Apple's iTunes AAC files) to mp3? To me, AAC is useless.

I figure since I use Windows iTunes under Linux vmware, I could just use one of those /dev/dsp capturer things, and then re-encode the results to mp3. Only problem then is it's real-time encoding... I'd like to find a way to do it faster, in a batch.

The way I've heard about folks doing it is burning the tracks to a CD, then ripping that to mp3. Still not approaching batch processing, but it at least removes the real-time component if you have a CD player that still permits digital ripping.
