Last week I posted a piece on my ZDNet blog about voice recorders lamenting that the new Olympus DS-2200 voice recorder (US$289) I purchased doesn’t yet work with Intel Macs.
So there I was, stuck with a bunch of MWA files that I created (including PowerPage Podcast #13) that I couldn’t do much with. I thought that I’d be able to simply open the WMA files in QuickTime Pro (via Flip4Mac) and convert them to something useful, but alas Flip4Mac isn’t compatible with Intel Macs either. Bleh.
A quick search of MacUpdate yielded a little nugget called EasyWMA a US$10 application that did exactly what I was looking for: converting WMA’s to MP3s.
EasyWMA accepts wma, asf, wmv, wav and features manual or automatic bit rate selection from the source, batch processing and ID3 tags support. Now I only wish Olympus would reimburse me the US$10.
