How to convert MPEG to MP3 file for Mac/ Windows

I have a video that's in .mpeg format on my computer, is there a way I can extract the audio of it and save into a MP3 format so I can put it on a CD and play on the radio? I am running iMac, OS X Mavericks (10.9.5).

The immediate answer is Yes. Let's say you might have downloaded a .mpeg video clip from elsewhere, and when you trying to load this file on to your smart phone and then make it a ringtone, you find that it is just not working -You can't get the ringtone created, transferred, and put to use until you have converted the mpeg format to mp3 file or other audio tracks on your Mac. Another example is that a friend sends you a interesting video with .mpeg file extension and you just want to get off its funning sound track backup on your hard drive after times playing.

To resolve the problem, a conversion tool is in order. There are several programs out there that promise to convert MPEG to .mp3 format. Here I would use something like Video Converter for Mac for greater control. It converts most kinds of video file you throw at it quickly and exports to formats you required including rip audio from MPEG to MP3 file on Mac. It contains both advanced options for the advanced user who wants to tweak the value of encoding parameters and device-targeted presets for a beginner.

After conversion, you can make the audio file more accessible for playback in different media players and devices such as iTunes, MP3 players, multimedia cell phones, MP3 CD or iPod.

For a Windows user, please go and get Video Converter for Windows.
