The MP3 file format is supported by the majority of digital music players.

There are literally dozens if not hundreds of audio formats available, with each specifically designed to support a designated software or player. ASX, or Advanced Streaming Redirector, is an Internet-based format that allows multiple audio formats the ability to stream at the same time. MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3, also referred to as MP3, is used mostly for play on portable audio devices, though the format is widely accepted and used with most software. However, if you want the MP3 to stream over the Internet, it may be best for you to convert the file to the ASX format.

Download the audio converter by following the link provided in the Resources section and clicking "Download Now." Click "Save File" when asked if you would like to save the file.

Double-click the newly downloaded file. It will appear in either a "Downloads" pop-up window or as an icon on the desktop. Click "OK" and then "Run" when asked if you would like to run the program.

Click "Next" when the installation wizard launches; then, follow the prompts to complete the installation.

Launch the converter and drag the desired MP3s into the main screen. Click "Start" and the file conversion will begin.

Tip

  • The actual title of the software is ASX to MP3 Converter; however, the program is back compatible and will be able to convert MP3 files to ASX files without any trouble.
