How to convert MP4 to M4A?
MP4 is a widely used format for video, but also it can be used to store audio. The MP4 file with the audio track will have the M4A extension and can use various codecs, such as AAC or ALAC.
If you wish to decrease MP4 file size without quality loss, it would be good idea to remove video and keep only audio track. In order to convert a file you just have to select the MP4 files you wish to convert and the output format, and then Audio Converter Plus will take care of the rest for you.
