Escape iTunes With the TuneClone Audio Converter

Posted by David Tucker in "Zune News" @ 11:45 AM

"You are considering buying a Microsoft Zune as you broke your iPod or had your iPod stolen. And you bought a lot of songs from iTunes store because you had money left on your iTunes gift card. You still want to enjoy those purchased songs on your Zune MP3 player. Or you own an iPod while your boyfriend/girlfriend has a Zune. And you hope to share the library of M4P music songs purchased from iTunes store under your account with your boyfriend/girlfriend. Here comes the headache! The M4P music you bought from iTunes is DRM-laden! You cannot transfer the iTunes M4P music to the Zune software, not to mention playing the iTunes M4P music on your Zune player."

So, you want to migrate from the iPod to the Zune but the main reason you haven’t made that jump is because you have your iTunes library. I’m sure that’s a very common reason for not coming over to the Zune world. (Ok, maybe not, but I’ll maintain my delusion.) This is a serious issue though and if you do want to change platforms, then your only options are mostly time consuming and wasteful.

TuneClone Audio Converter has come to the rescue! You can use this to move your library of M4P DRM protected music to the MP3 format that you can use on any player out there worth its salt. This is a useful tool for anyone looking to break their relationship with the iPod. This software does cost $34.95 to register but that price does give you what appears to be a full feature application. The best part is that it maintains all of the music file’s metadata. DigitalMediaOnline has a nice little tutorial that shows how it works.

IE Plugin to Convert YouTube, Google Video to Zune

Posted by Damion Chaplin in "Zune Content Creation & Management" @ 10:00 PM

"ZuneIEPlugIn allows users to install an Internet Explorer plugin that aids in saving YouTube, GoogleVideo and SoapBox videos to [their] video folders. User can view them on WMV compatible portable devices."



ZuneIEPlugIn boasts the ability to download and convert the .flv file to .wmv - ready for the Zune. The software installs a toolbar button in Internet Explorer that allows access to one-click conversion. I have to say I'm skeptical that it would be that easy. Has anyone tried it? I'll try downloading it later, but in the meantime feel free to share any results you may have.

Great "Converting Video for Zune" Guide

Posted by Michael Boutros in "Zune Software" @ 07:00 AM

http://www.zunester.com/zunevideo.htm

David Caulton of Zunester has written a screenshot-filled guide for converting videos to the Zune. In his guide, he teaches users how to setup and use ultra-easy TMPGEnc Xpress to convert all your videos to work on the Zune.

I personally read over the guide and I am now a proud user of TMPGEnc Xpress. It is really a very nice and easy product to use, and David has even provided a custom Zune settings "profile" to minimize the amount of work that you need to do. Good work David, and thanks for the amazing guide!
