what's a good program to convert

check out kJams Pro, mac version.

I honestly haven't used it that much for this purpose. It has an export to quicktime funtion. I noticed it creates an .MOV file, not an .MP4 file though. not sure if that can be changed or not.

I just tested one out and it plays in iTunes and VSL fine.

Sure does, I have a about 100 singalong songs in karakoke format. I wish I had a entire library converted. Or better yet why wont ME or VSL play that format and make it easier on all of us.

if VSL ever has an update...i know it's been mention so many time in this section but Karaoke Files mp3gs (zipped mp3gs) support would be great. Plus a way to change specific key of song, like C# to D etc...but for now converting to mp4 is the only sub...thanks powerkaraoke did the trick...just gotta alot of files to go through now...

Another good software to convert mp3+g to mp4 (or avi, mpg, mkv, mts) is Kanto Video Karaoke Creator. A detailed step-by-step guide here:

Serato now supports mp3g so no need to convert.

But it locks up my serato everytime I try to add it to the library

Stand alone Karaoke software is still superior to the basic SV implementation.

Hey PopnWave, I don't necessarily agree with that. When you're running 20 + karaoke shows a week, one platform is always better than teaching multiple. I know it can be done, and we've done it for 12 years, what I'm hoping for is a way to use what I WANT to use :)

Thanks for the opinion, but we differ :)

Most of the K jocks I know do side gigs with SDJ and wanted to use SV but having to unarchive all of their stuff was just too much clutter for their OCD!

But if it works for you, I totally understand.

Once serato can read zipped files, it'll be much better.

Handbrake and ffmpeg are good and free.
I know Some Payware like winx, dvdfab can also do this job:www.videoconverterfactory.com
Such program can keep the original audio quallity at most after all you need to pay for them. But the cracked full version is available. It depends on your own choice to choose one.

You can easily convert MPG3 to MP4 with the help of Handbrake, the free video converter.
But if you want to converter M4V to MP4, you need to use some paid video converters, such as DRmare M4V Converer, TunesKit Meida Converter.
