My diary - 1st July 2010

I have added more than 200 songs under the labels of "Maharajpuram Santhananam" 1, 2, & 3 apart from 80 songs in Tamil alone. Go to "Maharajapuram Santhanam" and you will find four labels with Maharajapuram Santhanam 3 with 202 songs Maharajapuram Santhanam 2 with 49 songs, and Maharajpuram Santhanam 1 with 40 songs and Maharajpuram Santhanam - Tamil songs with 80. Since many of you may not be looking into these additions, I have mentioned it here. Please enjoy.

With reference to conversion of songs from one format to the other, particularly from w4a to mp3 many readers have suggested many links. Here is one for those who require this facility.

Comment from Mr. Venkat :
Hello sir,

Your other readers can use this free software (GNU General Public License) to convert wma or m4a to mp3. I have used it for years.

BonkEnc is a free audio converter and CD ripper which integrates various popular formats and encoders. It currently supports MP3, MP4/M4A, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC and Bonk files.

and this was a reply from one of the readers

Dear Mr.Hariharan,
As suggested by Mr.Venkat in his comments I downloaded the software from

and have converted two kirtanas in Bhupalam ( S.No1 and 4) in ur blog. I shl try to convert others over a period.
I could not thank Mr.Venkat for his suggestion as I do not hv his ID. I m sending this thro this mail, as I could not find a facility for upload in the comments of ur blog.

Hope this will be useful to others also.

This was an additional comment from Ms. Neeraja:

Hello Mama,
This is in response to Mr. Bhaskaran's question. There is a software called Youtube downloader and its free to download. It downloads youtube videos and lets u convert it into any format u want..mp4 to mp3, itunes, wma etc. I have been using it for 3 years now and have had no problems.
