another way to convert SHN

Shorten for OS X is a simple graphical app that will convert SHN to WAV. Then you can use iTunes to convert the WAV file.

Are there any other SHN players about? I just recently discovered this format, and I'm interested in knowing about any players, for OSX or for Windows, that handle SHN files.

Hello,

I don't know of any off the top of my head that would play Shorten (or SHN) files natively (I'm guessing Audion + a SHN plugin but Audion is shareware the last time I checked). For Windows, I think you can get a plugin for Winamp that would allow you to play SHN files natively. I also think foobar2000 for Windows can play it too.

LOL! Looks like I picked the wrong week to enjoy SHN files. Shorten isn't working for me, either, but for all I know it may be that the files are corrupt [it reports a "premature end of file" ...]. I first heard of SHN files years ago but never bothered trying them until this week, when a pal sent me a link to Live Music Archive. All the files I've tried there have been SHN files, and I haven't heard one of them yet. I'm just about to give up and slide over to the Windows box and see if my old WinAmp can't be convinced to do this.
