I've never heard of these .mpc files before, and I've tried different programs to run them with no luck. What is a simple way to open these files, or to convert them to a simple format?

"Took you", sorry. Well, I didn't have as much luck, apparently. I'm glad it's a simple answer then. Care to drop a few clues on the way?

I've got foobar2000 because someone said that would play them, and all of the files have this "musepack" thing by them, but I can't figure that out because it doesn't seem to be any single program I could run, it looks like I'd need to coordinate some things and I can't see what I'm supposed to do.

The things that came up from a goodle search of .mpc are:

http://club.cdfreaks...ad.php?t=103521

http://forums.afterd...view.cfm/103535

And the mpc file is from these people.
http://www.musepack.net/

All this information was in the top 3 search results from .mpc so its not exactly well hidden information.

I've got a transcoder now. I'm happy I've got it. That's about as much progress as I made from those links, sorry. The files won't be cut, copied, or pasted, for some reason. So I can't use the transcoder yet anyway, which is just as well because I don't want to lose the files in their original format.

How does this all work? Do I need just the encoder and decoder, or is there a base program those two work with, or what? Nothing is really clear. Even if the files are all there, I can't tell their function or which ones I need, and then there's the matter of what I do with them. I appreciate your help, thanks. Making some progress at least.

Hei, Scot. The *nice* people at musepack figured out what the problem was. You don't have to worry about this anymore. Just pretend you did your job and close the thread. buh-bye. ^0^ <3

Personally, I just use foobar2000, it supports a ton of file formats out of the box.

Musepack takes some of the best stuff from mp3 and aac and tosses in some of it's own stuff, making for a very nice quality sound.

If you normally have you mp3's at 192 and higher, you might actually consider using musepack, as it compresses well (slightly higher size) but with a big improvement in quality.
