Convert M4P to WMA online, for free.
Apple iTunes Music Store (M4P) file is an Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) file that protects its content with Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology. Essentially, Apple uses this file format to prevent unauthorized use of the music files that are available for download from the iTunes Music Store. The specific name of Apple’s DRM protection is “FairPlay,” which is precisely what protects the content in M4P files.
Since M4P files protect iTunes files, naturally the default program for opening them is iTunes. The cross-platform option, which includes all popular operating systems and mobile, is VLC media player.
On Windows, several other options are available, such as MediaMonkey, Winamp, and Helium Music Manager. On Mac OS X, QuickTime is a good option. If there is a problem playing the file on a device, then use Aimersoft DRM Media Converter for Windows to remove DRM protection.

Microsoft initially developed the Windows Media Audio (WMA) file format to compete with the MP3 file format. WMA is both an audio codec and audio format. WMA has evolved since its inception in 1999, with several updated versions: WMA Pro, WMA Lossless, and WMA Voice. It is a key component of Windows Media, which Microsoft discontinued.
As a key component of Windows Media, Windows Media Player supports WMA files and is usually the default program for opening these. Because of their relative ubiquity, however, many other players and programs support the file type. WMA files are also frequently used in online streaming.
Other programs that can open WMA files include VLC media player and UltraMixer. For mobile devices, try OverDrive Media Console, which has separate versions for Apple iOS, Google Android, and Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile.
