decode and playback amr files

Have you ever tried to play an AMR file on your computer but finally found that this format is not supported? Or someone sent you an AMR file but you are not sure what program should open it. In fact, if you use your mobile phone to record audio, you will find the recordings are AMR files.

What is an AMR file?

AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate) is an audio file format which is widely used for storing spoken audio by many modern mobile phones like Nokia, HTC, Blackberry, Samsung, etc. Although the sound quality of AMR files is poor, it is still very popular due to its small file size.

By the way, there are two varieties of AMR files, which can cause some confusion. The second generation of the AMR-WB standard provides improved speech quality by doubling the bitrate. The two standards are not compatible, but AMR-WB files can have their own .awb extension as well as the familiar .amr extension. As a result, you get a decoding error if your software does not check the file header.

How to convert AMR files to another format?

There is no doubt that most mobile phones can play AMR files directly. However, if you want to play AMR files on your computer, MP3 player, iPad, iPod or other devices, you need to convert the files at first. As we know, many devices do not support AMR format. In this occasion, an AMR Converter is essential.
