Trying to get mp3 files...

I'm trying to get some mp3's of the Billy Joel album 12 Gardens Live to put on my mp3 player, but as I don't have administrative rights on the comp (-_-) I can't use software to convert the m4a files I have or create a copy from the CD's.

What I was wondering really was whether anyone knew of a good place to get these things where they are free and (fairly!) legit, as in I don't want to have to sign up to anything or have to complete a survey or something...

If Kong doesn't like this kind of stuff, then can you please send the link/whatever in a PM to me? Thanks guys!

Re: Trying to get mp3 files...

There is no "fairly legal" there is only legal and illegal.
Chances are for illegal you'd need to use torrents, but I don't trust them and therefore cannot recommend you do so.
For legal you usually need to pay to download things.

I actually use a video downloader, and then convert it to just the audio file in MP3 format with a program called "RealPlayer" it is convenient for me because it is also my downloader. It works well enough for me.

Re: Trying to get mp3 files...

Mate, I want mp3's, not videos (mp4), so youtube, in this instance, is useless.

Your second link isn't compatible with Linux, and I don't want to run a Windows emulator because then I'm open to all sorts of virus's, as almost nobody makes virus's for Linux and I would then be able to download Windows virus's. So I can't use that. (and the link should be to www.any-video-converter.com not Search Results for "anyvideoconverter.com" )

You know it's very rude when someone is trying to help you and you act this way.

Re: Trying to get mp3 files...

?

I certainly wasn't trying to be rude...

The only thing that could have possibly been considered rude was the way that I corrected your link... but even that wasn't that bad! Now, I would rather that you now left that particular train of thought, and helped me out, because I'm not the best at thinking of new ideas - I can finish an idea, but I have very little imagination or knowledge of how to start a techy project, and this is just something I'm not able to do.

And, as previously stated by me, I CANNOT USE that converter. It's considered good manners to read someone's post, and to not be a hypocrite!

Re: Trying to get mp3 files...

There are multiple video converters that can be used to convert into MP3 files, I used to do it all the time. If you have firefox there are several addons designed specifically for that purpose. As a matter of fact, I cannot think of any video converters that don't give you the option to convert just the sound to MP3.

If this is absolutely out of the question, then I have no help to offer in this instance.

Re: Trying to get mp3 files...

I look up the songs in goear.com and download them using video download helper plugin for firefox... I know it says video but it downloads many types of files. I recommend that when you download the song, write the file name as "example.mp3" because otherwise it might not save as an mp3

From my point of view this seems like a big misunderstanding. Let's drop it and move on with the topic. I rated everyone back up to neutral, no harm no foul.

Re: Trying to get mp3 files...

So you can't install anything? Why not? School computer? Can you use Java?

If you can install this Torrent - a (very) tiny BitTorrent client then torrents are your best bet. A couple good open places to find torrents are Earth's Biggest BitTorrent Database:: BitTorrentMonster and Torrents Search Engine

If you can't install utorrent then try this java client BitLet - the BitTorrent Applet

If that doesn't work then it sounds like you are asking for a way to convert m4a to mp3 online or to download mp3s online without any software.

For the first m4a to mp3 online - Google Search
For the second Beemp3.com - MP3 Search & Free MP3 Downloads

I've never used those sites - just posting because they are "fairly legal". They work under an old weird USSR law. The record industry puts a lot of pressure on them to get them shut down but they are not breaking any laws.

Re: Trying to get mp3 files...

I can't install anything because of the way the administrative rights are set up.

This is actually my big brothers computer which has been set up in my room at the moment (we're sharing) and he wouldn't give me (and I don't want!) administrative rights, because then there is almost no way that I will damage it, even though it's a lot harder to damage Linux than Windows.

I have a BitTorrent client (Transmission), it comes with Ubuntu, but I was really just looking for the files already in mp3 format that I could download in moments. I've just decided to use Transmission though, so i'ts now about 83% complete, so I'll just stick with that. (Even though it says about 3 & 1/2 hours left!)

Thanks for all the help though guys! Appreciate it, even if I am seen as being 'rude'!
