Re: Convert M4B to a playable format?

I agree. iTunes I think is the easiest option. Basically, it will convert those to mp3s automatically I think.

I use iDealshare VideoGo to convert M4B to MP3, M4A or WAV.

 

It works great, it even can split M4B with chapters to MP3.

Re: Convert M4B to a playable format?

Well, you are a fool to use a paid programs when iTunes will do it simply, easily and free.

 

Or perhaps you are a shill.

 

Wow, your first post . What a surprise. Don't believe the hype.

Re: Convert M4B to a playable format?

I have never been happy to have iTunes installed on my computer.  I do not like it's system footprint.

 

So without itunes, you can still easily convert.  And there is no option to pay for this software, so I'm not selling a thing.

 

1) Download VideoLan Client.  You can search for "videolan client" or "VLC" on google

 

2) Start VLC and choose "Media / Convert / Save" from the menu bar, or press Ctrl-R

 

3) Select the file using the "Add" button, then press "convert/save"

 

4) Create a new profile, call it "Sansa". The "new profile" button is next to the deletion cross.

 

5) In "Encapsulation" tab select Ogg/Ogm

 

6) In "Audio Codec" tab turn "Audio" on, select codec "Vorbis", and change sample rate to 22050Hz

 

7) Press save

 

8) Copy the book name into the "destination file" box and press "Start"

You shills never stop, do you?

I think the VLC player instructions landed while I was mocking the previous shill.

 

VLC is great free software, true, and Sansa will play .ogg files. But whether VLC will actually convert those particular  Apple audiobook files (m4b) is something someone else will have to try.
