Converting m4a to mp3 on MacOSX

I only have a mp3 player in my car and I wanted to play the songs I bought at iTunes Music Store. Took me a little while to find out, but eventually I found the way to do it (or a way, at least):

  • Install ffmpegX, follow their steps.
  • Copy all the songs you want on one CD to a single directory.
  • Run the following command:

    find . -name "*.m4a" -exec /Applications/ffmpegX.app/Contents/Resources/ffmpeg -i {} -acodec mp3 -ac 2 -ab 128 "{}.mp3" \;

  • Wait until done.
