Does anyone know how to convert an mp3 file to an audio mpg or any other format that I can upload on these forums? No, the mp3 isn't stolen. Thanks.

Yes there are programs to do that but it would be huge, as this place can only upload 2 MB.

Just upload your MP3 to www.yousendit.com and paste the link for people to download it.

Or you could always ZIP the MP3 up and upload it here, providing it's 2MB and under.

mp3s are actually mpegs. mp3 stands for M-PEG Layer 3, just as you can get M-PEG Layer 1, 2 and 4. I don't think you could get the filesize much smaller with another format, but you can reduce the quality using a program such as Audacity (free download - google it). You can go as low as 64kb/sec without sacrificing too much quality.

Yep, Windows Media Files (.WMA) are really small. A 3mb MP3 can be saved as a WMA and the file size can be only several hundred kb instead. (With the resulting loss in quality)

Hmm, ok thanks guys. I just renamed it as .mpg and it works. Is that because it was already an mpg and this site just didn't recognize the name? I mean I couldn't just rename an mpg as an avi and it would suddenly be an avi, I'd have to use a program to do that, right?

It doesn't make it an mpg, or an avi, it just makes the site, or any Windows programs, and Windows think it is a mpg.

The site, and everything in Windows looks to the last three letters to figure out what kind of file it is. If they are wrong, then the file won't work right.

Try changing it to a *.txt. Notepad will open it, but it will be nothing but gibberish, as opposed to the lyrics.

As I said, use a program like Audacity (it's open source) to import it then save as another format. Simple.
