I Almost have a new phone...well, hopefully!

 

Anyway, last potential stumbling block. It seems the Moto G4 Plus does not natively support WMA files. It looks like the HTC One X9 does.

 

Can I get around this problem on the Moto by using a program like VLC? I've seen conflicting reports...

 

I wish that years ago I had just ripped everything to MP3 or something...but I ain't loving the idea of ripping almost 700 CDs again. At this stage I'd spend the extra on the HTC if the VLC idea wouldn't work

 

...Otherwise, are there any decent programs I could use to convert my library? I don't know what to trust from my brief searching...

 

Thanks!

For conversion, SWITCH audio converter.

it has a LOT of hijacks for a few file types for its 'software library' but the actual software is perfectly legit, and as far as I can tell it doesn't 'phone home' or do anything nasty.

NZ product!

 

I actually bought it, it was so good.

Yes, its the spyware attached to those products which you have to watch for.

DO NOT USE BETA VLC.

 

I used a beta version a couple years ago it torched my phone lol.

 

Now using the std VLC for droid and it works wonders.

 

About your problem though - wouldnt it just be easier to reencode your files?  Something like Audacity, but with batch runs.

Its not spyware. If it were I wouldnt use it.

When you install SWITCH, the NCH suite (which is their suite) comes with it.

So when you next run, say, an ISO file, you'll get "We have an ISO program you need to download to add to this".

Its literally just file associations.

 

Catch? The actual application is so damn, fucking, perfect, I'll put up with those little gotchas to have it. Nothing comes close.

 

Though If you figure out the bloody oddball menu structure, MediaMonkey can do it too, no catches involved.

Thanks again all- I won't bother mucking around changing my files unless I have to. Hopefully VLC for Android will keep me happy!

There's VLC 2.0 on google play, I think the beta is numbered like 1.0
