Does anyone have an easy recommendation for reducing the bitrate of a WMA file (without having to cut the WMA file to CD & re-rip)? I'd prefer free (and something I may already have loaded would be ideal). I know I could cut it to CD & re-rip with WMP, but want to avoid wasting a CD.
Someone gave me a WMA sample file that the ClipZip doesn't play. I looked at the properties and it's 800+Kbps - so lossless WMA apparently? I've never messed with high bitrates before & had to look it up in the Zip manual to find out there was a bitrate limit.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks - I've thought of a couple other software packages I have which may be useful. In WMP, I couldn't figure out how to reduce bitrate without cutting a CD first.
At this point, it's an acedemic exercise, anyway, I don't *need* the music track anymore, just trying to figure out how before I'm expected to listen to another WMA Lossless file.

I don't think anything will play a WMA lossless file but a Windows computer or a Zune player....not even Rockboxed players.
