I'm writing a program to back up a music library and have been asked about making a duplicate library but in mp3 for use with a portable player.
Can I use mov123.exe to convert between aac and mp3? and if so where can I find the commands?

Thanks in advance

Craig

I wrote this [1] script to convert between flac and mp3. You may find it
useful; suitably modifed, of course.

Thanks Robin but that looks a bit heavy and I can't make head or tail of
Perl :-(

I was thinking more of a windows command that I can include in my program
like

mov123 song.m4a song.mp3

If only it was that simple
