Windows Media Audio, often simply referred to as WMA, is an older audio format that usually provides better quality than other highly compressed music files. However, the WMA format is gradually being replaced by MP3, which is now the standard for digital music. A lot of multimedia devices, including iPods and other Apple devices as well as Mac computers, do not support WMA. So what do you do if you want to listen to some WMA music on your iPod that’s stored on your hard drive or CD? Just change the file format to MP3 using the Movavi converter. Along with a range of video formats, this powerful program enables you to convert from WMA to any other type of audio format: MP3, AAC, WAV, OGG, or lossless FLAC. Install it on your computer and try it yourself! Follow the step-by-step instructions below to start converting.
