You Can!

I will not say how...DCMA...USA....no freedom to do so.

It is very easy and can be easily automated with an applescript. In fact, I am surprised someone did not post an apple script for iTunes that does the conversion from within itunes by now....

I would but then why bother, I have no motivation 2 do so, I have an iPod...

As for quality loss; you've got to be kidding. They don't know jack. I did it a few times just to see for myself and I can't tell a thing. (other than the mp3 has to be a high bit rate to compare with the mp4)

Interesting to note, Quicktime says those mp4s are varable bit rate....

Also, by not helping people work around the restrictions, I'm helping apple, the public (who will not have to suffer just because the RIAA is past its time--and wants to take more freedoms away) and I'm helping the artists---because in the future artists can use the internet legally; that is if the RIAA does not outlaw that too...

Someday, artists will be able to go to Apple and others and sell their music without a LABEL to steal their money from them. The RIAA will not have the power then that they do now.
