Question MP4 Conversion & Rename Files Based On Tags

Is it possible to convert/re-encode an mp4 (.m4a) file as an mp3 file?

What’s the best program to rename a file based on the tag info?

Tag&Rename is by far the best program for tagging your mp3s. Search for it on google.

You can set up a mask to mass rename the files based on the tags, in any way you want. You can use any info from the tags.

Personally I renamed all of mine like this:

Artist - Year - Album - Track Number - Title.mp3

It's long, but it works fine.

Yes, as long as it is an unprotected mp4 file. Just set your iTunes encoder to convert to mp3, then right-click on the song and select "convert selectin to mp3."
