I've used <a href="http://www.download.com/Free-Mp3-Wma-Converter/3000-2140_4-10442362.html" target="_blank">this</a> in the past. But yeah, mp4 files can be annoying. My work computer can't play them, and I can't install anything on my computer to play or convert them.

Try Mplayer. It can convert just about any audio/video file to any other audio/video file.<br><br><br><br>
If I were you I would choose ogg over mp3. It is of higher quality per bitrate than mp3, it doesn't have any patent restrictions like mp3, and the design and implementation is completely open and free. It is the ideal choice for new lossy media.

Jon, appreciate the info.<br><br>
I'm trying to share material with people that have "mp3 players" - would you estimate these will play ogg?

Depends on the device. Every player is different with a different set of features.

The best tool for converting audio files is something called "foobar2000." I think they gave it that name because it is NOT easy to use at all. If you are computer literate, give it a try.
