Convert M4B to MP3 online, for free.
MPEG-4 Audio Layer (M4B) is the file format that stores audiobooks and podcasts, primarily those that are available on iTunes. The cool thing about this file format is that, unlike MPEG-Audio Layer III (MP3), M4B can store digital bookmarks. This feature allows readers to pause and resume later, just like a physical bookmark in a printed book!

MPEG-1 Audio Layer III or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III (MP3) is a digital, audio-coding format used to compress a sound sequence into a very small file to enable digital storage and transmission. MP3 files are the most widely-used audio file for consumers. Due to small size and acceptable quality, MP3 files are accessible to a wide audience, as well as easy to store and share.
Because MP3 files are so prevalent, most major audio playback programs support them. Simply clicking on the file will open it in iTunes or Windows Media Player, depending on your preferred platform. Users can also preview MP3 files.
Another program that can open MP3 files is VLC media player. Keep in mind that two other file types use the MP3 extension. They are Masterpoint green points data, which is obsolete; and TeslaCrypt 3.0 ransomware encrypted file, which is malware that demanded ransom in bitcoins, but is thankfully now deactivated and no longer a threat.
Initial Release: 1993
