I have not had any problems gettng this program to work. The developer has been very responsive to my e-mail inquiriies. I haven't found any other program that can batch process wma files this quickly, efficiently, and conveniently. I found it worth my money.

I recently bought a Macbook Pro and had uploaded/downloaded all of my music to my Dell before that. I noticed that only about two thirds of my collection made it from my USB Hard Drive to ITunes, and I started reading about WMA to MP3 conversion. I downloaded EasyWMA last night and in a short amount of time I had my entire collection in ITunes. I was able to browse the web while my files were being converted. I wish I didn't have to pay $13 to use music that I legally purchased, but I guess it's better than having to re-purchase the music again!

Excellent program that does all that I need except that the ffmpeg component uses over 99% CPU on a Core2Duo MacBook Pro (2007) with 4GB RAM when converting WMA to MP3. I have contacted the developer in the hope that he can better influence the ffmpeg project team than I can to fix this flaw.

For $10 this is actually a pretty terrible program, have seen cheaper programs that are far better than this one is, or do pretty much the same thing. I'd have to say to make sure that you look around at all your options before you settle on this.

There was an issue with the initial 3.0.6 release. Make sure you download it again. The "About EasyWMA" box should read "EasyWMA 3.0.6 (0002)".

Having previously purchased EasyWMA there has never been any problem. But, recently upgraded from v3.0.4 to 3.0.6 where errors were received every time a WMA file was added to the que for conversion. Returned to 3.0.4 and this one continues to work flawlessly. The EasyWMA website does not provide much for support and the reason for the trouble with the ugprade is unknown. So, if anyone has any ideas...

This is a great app. I have a current model Olympus voice recorder (Olympus finally is making all their recorders Mac-mountable), but it saves the recordings as WMA. EasyWMA makes it so simple to convert them-in Preferences, you choose what folder you want them to be saved to, set it and forget it. From then on, every time you plug in the Olympus recorder, EasyWMA immediately converts the files directly to the folder you specified without you having to intervene. It is truly a 1-step process. Can't get easier than that.

A total rip off. The full version software downloaded from their link after payment will not convert the wma files to mp3 but to very short (4kb) m4p files. They take your money and you get shafted. LOVELY. Since they are FRANCH good luck getting back a flipping dime.

This little program works exactly as advertised. I had several wma files that needed to be converted to mp3. There are several free alternatives, but most of the free programs require additional software. This piece of software, although it's not free, was an excellent solution! The program has a drag and drop style interface, which makes converting quick and easy! Just choose your format, then, drag and drop! Conversion starts instantly and saves in the same folder as your original media! Not only does this software work fast and efficient, but it's also affordable. License keys are sent via e-mail instantly after purchase, so you can start converting right away!

I needed to change wma files to something usable by iTunes. This worked beautifully . . . converted about 200 tunes to mp3 in about 40 minutes. Batch processing makes it totally painless. Not lots of options, but plenty for me. Price is right, too . . .$10. One tip from another user was to try the demo program first to see if the wma files are protected. Good idea.

A no nonsense app that does what it says it does with no fuss. I use it to convert my Olympus Voice Recorder wma files to mp3s. It also converts other formats as I found out when some bizarre Open Source freaks insist on sending .ogg files. EasyWMA also converts those with aplomb.

Great software. I just embarked on converting nearly 600 albums that I had previously saved in WMA format, 5621 songs in all. I batch processed around 50-60 albums at a time over several days and EasyWMA completed the job without a hitch including correct tagging all files. Does one thing and does it well. Recommended.

acutally if you want a free wma converter just use audion if you want. it automatically encodes wma's to mp3's if it doesnt do it automatically go to tools and encode. you can even batch encode with audion. the sad part is i found this out from a friend after i would of downloaded your product and used it bu 10 for a converter isnt worth it, sorry.

For anyone who would actually like to try this program... http://web.volftp.tiscali.it/pub/mac/music/easywma.dmg It's a previous version (2.2), so some bugs that are present may already be fixed in the newer version which 2.3 at the time of this writing. Perhaps the developer will realize that consumers like to try before they buy. I understand this may increase pirated software, but many people will pass up the application if they aren't given an opportunity to use it first.

uhmmm people if you dont want to pay for this application you can do this very easily. for any wma song or file you have double click it until you can edit the name. when you can go to the very end of it where it says .wma just change it .mp3 or w/e other music file type you want. its that simple and fast.

Why it costs $10 while it was a previously $2 donationware? Where is the new feature that worth the extra $8? Removal of "Request for Donation" dialog box a significant new feature? I don't think is. While it is much more convenient than converting WMA file with iTune running on Windows, the convenience is never worth $10. Think again Mr. Developer. You are not only losing money. You are losing fans. Developers wrote free software to attract users who might pay for other shareware or commercial software written by the same author with similar quality. The worst move is to p*ss off your potential clients.

If you thought two dollars was too much for this program at version 2.2.1, then ten dollars for 2.3 is a huge mistake. Perhaps there should be some kind of demand first before charging such an exorbitant price for a program that is easily replaced by a P2P app?

The link provided downloads a .dmg containing only a text file directing you to the developer's website, where a 2$ mandatory donation is now apparently required before downloading is allowed. I don't think that qualifies as "freeware" anymore. O.o I have no problem with paying (especially such a small amount), but I'd at least like to be able to try it out before I make a "donation".

I put all the files onto my iPod and they played fine. I had been looking for an application like this for quite some time. I intend to donate to the developer.

Excellent software - it does exactly what it says. I'm sure there is some 'legal' reason for why Apple doesn't just build this ability into iTunes or into an OS X utility. It sure would be nice if they did. Since they don't - thank goodness for EasyWMA!

All it does is generate a 4KB file. I dragged a .wma file (3.2MB) to the icon and in a split second it saved a .mp3 file to my drive. This file has an iTunes icon but there is no data in the file - it is only 4KB in size. I don't know if I'm doing something incorrectly ... as far as I can tell you have to drag/drop a wma file to the app and it does the conversion for you - or is supposed to! I just can't get it to work! OSX 10.3.9, G4 Sawtooth.

Cool software, but what would be even cooler, and even more useful, is if they wrapped the WMA decoder in a QuickTime Component. Then we could listen to WMA in any QT based app, just as we should be able to. Why Apple doesn't broker a deal with Microsoft to include support for all WIndows Media formats in QT is beyond me, QT still has problems with AVI as well.

I can't get this to download from the website. It's showing the binary as a text file. Also, does it work with all .wma files? I have a couple that I can play using the Microsoft player (do I know they work), but I want them as .mp3. iTunes 4.6 won't accept them, the new SoundConveter wouldn't either, so if this utility will then that justifies its existence in the face of iTunes.

Fantastic piece of software once you get it sussed. I had the same initial problems as many people but after some experimenting and reading the guide on the website I got it working. Here are a couple things to bare in mind: - Make sure the WMA files are on your hard drive and not a cdrom/dvd etc. This software creates the mp3 files in the same directory so it won't work if you try converting direct from sources other than the hard drive. - Also make sure the the folder containing the WMA files is set to enable both reading and writing. Do this by highlighting the folder and going to File, then Get Info. In the menu that appears, set the Ownership & Permissions box to Read & Write. These were the two hurdles that stood in my way, so I guess it's happened to a few others. I hope this lil' guide helps you others!

Super easy to use. It helps that I have installed just about every available codec on my system to try and get Quicktime to play just about anything, which meant I didn't need to install anything additional to make this work. The mp3's were flawless - very cool product.

Works really well. After downloading WMA files in Safari EasyWMA automatically took over and converted the files to MP3. But here's something that would be even better guys; roll this into a QuickTime codec! Then we won't even have to convert the files, we'd be able to play WMA files in iTunes and ANY app that plays audio using QuickTIme. How cool would that be. Interface needs a bit of work, clicking items in the list should select them so then I can hit the "show" button in the toolbar. Currently it doesn't recognize clicks at all. Keep up the good work.

This is a wrapper to ffmpeg. The interface is quite simple and easy to understand. A simple drag 'n drop to convert WMA files... It would be nice to have the ability to drag a folder instead of all files within a folder. Also, a bitrate detection of the source files would be an interesting feature.

For the very occasional .wma files you come across, MPlayer will open them, along with a huge variety of audio and video files (.avi, .ogg, asf, ...), and even some corrupt .mpg that QT won't play. It's right here at MU: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/10784. Now, if you want to keep .wma files on your HD, this program may do the trick... better have a .mp3 than a .wma on a Mac.

Very cool idea, especially if any Mac users come across 'any' wma files. ;-) Good icon, nicely priced. However, it does not work under 10.2.8. [The application EasyWMA has unexpectedly quit. (The system and other apps have not been affected)] [From the website (& ReadMe): EasyWMA has been developed under Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, but should also work under Mac OS X 10.2 although it has not been tested.] Anyway, I'm sure v1.01 will 'fix' this. ;-)

Great thing. Works and has a good price. Is there any app which converts sound from a .wmv-file to an .mp3-file?
