Format shifting my music

Format shifting my music

Most of this is on computer devices and I have been using itunes to listen to it and download to an ipod touch. The time has come to move on and I want to be able to play the collection on most devices in the house, which means, most accessibly, windows media player, but google play is also needed for my phone(s).

Step 2 is to convert the apple proprietary format to one that is more popular. I am choosing to use .mp3 and am using this tool to perform the conversions.
