Devices and dedicated multimedia players use different settings for playback options, which means not all formats can be rendered by one program or device in particular. However, you can use specialized applications like Contenta MP3 Converter to turn the file into a suitable format for the task you need.

In order to help you do this with little effort, the application’s general design consists of a wizard-driven process, with thorough descriptions for all elements you hover the mouse cursor over. There are only a few steps, and even though you may encounter a lot of options, the overall process is easy enough to grasp within the first few seconds of use.

The first step is to add the files of interest, and this can either be done by dragging them over the main window, or relying on the built-in browse dialogs for individual files, or contents of folders. The neat advantage is you can load both video and audio files of formats like AAC, AC3, FLAC, MP2, MP3, OGG, M4A, WAV, WMA, M4V, AVI, MP4, MOV, FLV, MPEG, 3G2, DV, VOB, and MKV.

Once files are loaded, Contenta MP3 Converter can take you to the next step, where you get to configure all quality and output settings. As such, several categories let you manage conversion options, renaming, whether or not to create individual subfolders, and edit or add audio tags.

The range of output formats is substantial, with several presets for popular mobile devices, players, and game consoles. However, you’re free to pick a simple format from a drop-down menu and configure its parameters. Renaming can be done by applying sets of rules or a simple counter, while audio tags let you fill in all details to make your collection complete.

All in all, Contenta MP3 Converter manages to live up to expectations and is sure to provide a way to convert video and audio files to the format you need in projects, or for a particular player. The wizard-driven interface makes sure you don’t get stuck along the way, with tons of supported formats and quality customization options.
