How do I convert MP4 video to MP3?
Many readers ask this question, so I decide to write this post to give you guys a full guide.
For the millennial generation, I guess everyone knows about the MP4 or MP3 format. Still, I’d like to take some time to further dig out these two words. If you can’t wait to learn how to convert MP4 to MP3, just skip this part and go straightly to the tutorial.
- MP4 (formally MPEG-4 Part 14) is a digital multimedia container format that most commonly used to store video. MP4 is one of the most compatible video formats. Basically, every computer, smartphone and tablet can recognizes and play MP4 files.
- MP3 (formally MPEG-1 Audio Layer III or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III) is a digital audio codec. It’s the most commonly used audio format due to its strong compatibility. MP3 files are smaller than any other audio file at the same time, but offering similar sound quality to CDs.
In this post, I only focus on MP4 to MP3 converter for computer. You know, the desktop app is much stable and secure than the online tool in any way.
