iTunes and QuickTime can convert a variety of audio files to other formats, but not all of them. You need plug-ins in order to convert file formats such as FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, and Windows Media Audio.
For just $4 you can skip the plug-ins and download Andrew Heard’s Tunesify 1.1.1 (
Mac App Store link). There’s nothing particularly fancy about it. Just launch the application, add supported audio files, choose the format you’d like them to be converted to, and click Convert. In a short while you have your converted.
