If you want to listen to your favorite songs on any Windows-based device (computer, mobile phone, tablet) without having to install additional codecs, but you are not sure what format to use, then WMA is the obvious choice. This format was designed by Microsoft as the default audio file type on Windows operating systems. While enjoying support on all Windows-based devices, this format might have some problems with other platforms and devices (especially ones running on iOS). MP4 is a modern multimedia format that is great for storing and playing and streaming video and audio data in high quality. This type of file is also used as a video storage and playback solution for various mobile devices such as iPad, iPod, iPhone and other smartphones.
Extracting WMA audio files from MP4 videos can come in handy in various situations. For example, if you have a video clip of your favorite song stored as a MP4 file, but you only need to listen to it, instead of watching it, why not save some space and turn the video into an audio file?
Now, I will show you how to convert your MP4 videos into WMA audio files using iWisoft Free Video Converter by iWisoft Inc. I have chosen this tool, mostly because it has a professional look, offers several customization options and can batch convert file so that you can process multiple videos at once.
