Free MP3 converter

does anyone know of a good FREE all-to-MP3 converter that converts anything (most importantly real player files) into MP3? and is not on a trial?

I use Wismp3 which is freeware. Can be got from click here although that wasn't where I got it from. It will "play and encode" 1 or more tracks to mp3. You can also configure it to "encode only" or "play only". I normally use the "play and encode" mode. Once encoded as MP3s if you are going to burn them to CD make sure you burn them as "Data" and not "Audio".

is an elegant application worth a serious look click here, especially when its author has now made it a freeware (shareware is v1.82) as a kind gesture. i am not sure if it could convert rm files to mp3 format.

long ago, the freeware version of "Audiograbber" (maybe v1.81) was in my old pc but i did not download it after i changed my pc because it only allowed half of the total CD tracks to be ripped at any instance. it uses both internal and external codecs for music format conversion.

by the way, i suppose this application has one of the best desktop/program icons design that i have seen.

wonder how they compare? Used to use Audiograbber but agree with what was its limitation ( QQAA). Intersting to read that the writer of Audio is communicating with writer of dB. Any comments would be gratefully recd.

Apple's iTunes for Windows lets you convert an unlimited amount of songs to MP3 at 192kbps, it's quite good.
