Last resort time

I'm about to do something very illegal. No, actually I'm not, but people may think it is. I got a boat load of music from my friends i-Pod (legitimately, he allowed me to do so and everything), but the only problem is, it's all in mpeg-4 format, which will only run in... you guessed it... i-Tunes.

Now who can look me in the face and say they don't love i-Tunes.

Hopefully everyone, which is where my problem comes along. I'd rather use a cassette tape player than that software, so I'm asking. Is there a single program out there which will allow me to convert... preferably to MP3. So that's what I'm looking for, a program that'll convert MPEG-4 music to MP3. I've googled this to no avail (although I won't give up, but if you guys know of anything it'll be a huge help) so now it's down to you guys. Any help?

This would also help me to play this music on my MP3 player (which thankfully isn't an i-Pod and can only play mp3's and wma's), which is in serious need of an update.

...I think I know how to do that in Linux... I'm pretty sure MPlayer can play MPEG-4 Audio, that means MEncoder (which is just a symlink to MPlayer to instruct it to behave a tad differently) can convert it to WAV, which can be converted into MP3 (by, let's say, lame) or into OGG Vorbis... But that doesn't really help you, does it?
Unless you want to tinker a bit with MPlayer, there is a Windoze port/release...

There's no GUI and I can't be asked to memorize the shortcut keys or set my computer up to not close the command line half a seccond after I open it.

I'm looking for more of a windows friendly program (or something less impossible)

No GUI? I don't think so.

...Anyway, there definitely is no GUI for the MEncoder part of MPlayer, e.g. you have to use the command line to convert MPEG-4 Audio -> WAV

Okay, my bad. Apparently, iTunes has it's own converting... thing I can use to convert files into mp3 files, which is handy (if I didn't hate iTunes so much, I may have found it earlier, although I'm not praising it for anything)

I'll close this now because... well, I'm sure you guys can find something to talk about here, but you've already spam blasted two other threads around here, no point in giving you another. Closed.
