Eugene, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/02/2014 -- SDR [Software Development Resource] releases new converter software with their free M4A to MP3 converter. This continues their tradition of releasing dozens of batches of free software to help customers and interested individuals have a taste of their team's wide array of capabilities when it comes to software development.
Delving into M4A
For those who have read previous releases, SDR has already launched their own MP4 player and converters and to further update this series, they now release an addition to the family.
M4A is often associated to the MP4 format as it's the audio only MPEG4 files. iTunes is one of the popular players that uses this file extension.
There had been confusion for most Windows users on which format is which but most of them just rely on the search function. As stated above, M4A are just component files under the entire MP4 container file format family which makes it an accessory. The inclusion of iTunes into the picture prompted Apple to do something about the confusion.
They made .m4a one of their standard extensions and given their popularity in the USA, it didn't take long for the format to be popularized. Due to this initiative, many users now understand and easily recognize the real difference or rather similarities between the .m4a and .mp4 format as there isn't any difference really.
On the other hand, MP3 is the current de facto standard in most audio digital playback players for either online or online platforms. Mp3 is largely an audio-file strict format unlike its .mp4 successor. Given its popularity, widespread support for this format is also omnipresent.
Most .m4a files are often associated with the Apple OS users and since there are many other Windows user, there might be discrepancies while opening it across OS platforms. SDR's free M4A to MP3 converter does the trick.
