Importing wmv files with Audacity

Audacity’s latest beta (Audacity 1.3.6) will let you import Windows Media Audio (wma) files. You will first need to download the FFmpeg support much like you must download the lame encoder to export in mp3 format. This is great news for those of us in education who have been using the inexpensive digital audio recorders that record in wma format. Now I won’t have to explain to students how to convert their files from a wma to a wav or aif file (zamzar.com) before they can import them into Audacity for editing.

The latest release also includes other features such as sound-activated recording.
