How to Change MP4 to MP3 and Vice Versa
MP4 or MPEG-4 is currently one of the most popular multimedia formats. Because of the optimum balance between video size and quality, MP4 is used for a wide range of purposes: encoding large movies or TV episodes, online video streaming such as YouTube clips, and even for audio files. However, not all media players support MP4, so you can’t play these files on many devices, even if you only need the soundtrack. Luckily, there’s a simple solution: convert MP4 video to MP3, the most widely used audio format. Besides, MP3 files are smaller in size so you can save a lot of space by converting video into audio.
Converting MP4 to MP3 is very easy. All you need is Movavi Video Converter for Windows or Mac with support for almost all known media formats and many other benefits. Take a look at our short step-by step instruction on how to turn MP4 into MP3 within just a few minutes.

1. Install the Movavi Software
Once you have downloaded Movavi Video Converter, simply double-click the downloaded file to start the installation and follow the on-screen instructions. Wait a few seconds until the process is complete and then run the program.
2. Add Files for Conversion
Click Add Media and then Add Video (or Add Audio if you want to convert MP3 to MP4) to open the files you need to encode, and then add them to the program. You can also add the files by simply dragging them from their folder into the converter window.
3. Choose the Output Format
Click Audio in the bottom part of the interface and find the MP3 preset group. Click it and choose your preferred bitrate options. Remember that the higher the bitrate, the better the quality; however, higher quality audio files will also take up more disc space, even with MP3 files.
In case of MP3-to-MP4 conversion, switch to the Video tab and select the MP4 preset.
4. Set a Target Folder and Start the Conversion
In the Save to field, specify the target folder in which you want to save your files or they will be saved in the default Movavi Library folder. Click Convert to start the conversion. Once the job is done, the folder containing your music files will open automatically.
