If you have downloaded or purchased any songs from iTunes, the audio file would come in an M4P file format which is DRM (Digital Rights Management) protected. Therefore, an M4P audio file can only be open or played on an Apple device. If you wished to listen to your M4P songs on other non-Apple based devices, you are basically left with no other option apart from renaming or saving it to another file or format. The most preferred audio file or format is the MP3, which is supported by almost all of the other non-Apple based devices.
You can try to open your M4P file on a supported media player and try to rename or save it to another file type. That is the easiest way or method to use in order to convert your M4P file to an MP3. In case that fails, your last option is to convert your M4P files to an MP3 with a converter. It is not difficult to find one that could perform the conversion but it might not be as good as the Wondershare Converter Ultimate for Mac.
The installation of the Wondershare Converter Ultimate for Mac will only take a few minutes. Once it is completed, simply double-click on the icon to launch the program. Save yourself some time and just drag-and-drop in your M4P audio files onto the program all at once. The straightforward yet sleek design of the program makes it very easy for users to navigate themselves around the features offered. If this is your first time trying to convert a file, don’t worry, we’ll guide you through it.
