The program is very simple to use.

Add Input File(s) You can add files to be converted by selecting them from a standard file dialog box, or you can drag-drop a number of files to the listbox (e.g., by using Windows Explorer). The input files can be in any format that FileConverter recognizes.

Clear Clicking this button clears the previous list of files in the files listbox.

Select Output Folder Before starting to convert the selected files, you must select an output folder, and for safety's sake, the output folder should be differrent than the folders containing the input files, to avoid over-writing the input files. This is because the program uses the same base name for both the input and the converted output files. For example, "GreatSong.wav" would be converted to "GreatSong.mp3", if you choose the .mp3 output file conversion format.

Save as File Type Select from the drop-down listbox the type of format you would like for the output files. All of the input files will be converted to the same format that you select. Multiple output formats are supported (over 22, as of this writing).

Encoder Options Clicking the Encoder Options button brings up a dialog box appropriate for the File Type format that you have selected. The options for each format type are explained in each of these dialog boxes. Or, you can simply use the default formats for each file type without having to specify them.

Encoder Options for RSS, M3U, PLS, and WPL files: Each of these four formats create playlists of audio files, which means that they contain the names of audio files, rather than the actual audio files themselves, which are located somewhere else on your computer, network, or on the Internet. These formats have been created in order to allow you to upload them to a website on the Internet, where multiple users can stream or download the referenced music files to their computers.

The format settings for each of these file types allow you to enter a root URL where the playlist will be hosted on the Internet. FileConverter automatically appends the filenames of the audio files that you are converting (which are coverted to MP3 files that can be played by the majority of browsers).

Start Converting After selecting the desired input files to be converted, the desired output folder, and the desired file type format, simply click this button to begin formating. A progress bar shows the progress, and the file being formated is shown at the bottom of the screen.

Cancel Converting Click this button to stop formating, if desired.
