Movavi offers a free trial, the program is free to download.
Read the steps below to learn how to convert your MP4 file to MP3 with Movavi Video Converter.
Step 1. Install Movavi Video Converter
Visit the Movavi Video Converter site and download the program. Run the installation file and follow the instructions. Once installed, run Movavi Video Converter.
Step 2. Select the files you want to convert
Click Add Media and then Add video. Choose the video to convert to MP3 on a Mac from the window. You can also drag files directly from the desktop into Movavi Video Converter. Either way, you can select or drag multiple files into the program if you want to do a batch conversion.
Step 3. Choose your output format
When you add files, a menu will appear at the bottom of your window with multiple tab options. Click the Audio tab and find the MP3 presets. Select the preset with your preferred bitrate – 128 kbps, 192 kbps, 256 kbps, 320 kbps, or Original. Be mindful of your bitrate as higher ones have better quality sound, but take up more disc space.
Step 4. Set your target folder and convert your file
At the bottom of the window, click the Save to button and specify where you want to store your converted file. If you don’t set a file, the default destination is the Movavi Library folder.
When you’ve chosen your target folder, click Convert to start the conversion process. After the process is finished, the program will auto-open the folder.
