Converting from .wmv to an acceptable file extension

I am trying to create a musical sequence for "Celebrate Jesus". The problem is that I have it in a .wmv extension format. When I try to rename it as a format that I thought would be acceptable for LOR (i.e. .wav, .mp3, etc. extension formats), it would not accept it. What do you all use to convert music files from one extension to another for it to be compatible with LOR?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

There are free programs which will do it (they shall not be mentioned here as it is against forum policies to do so), as well as typing *.WMA into the file type.

The quick and easy fix is not to do anything at all. Simply browse to the location of the file and if you don't see it in the files listing, just start to type in the name of the file. When auto-complete pops up listing the file, click it and then click "OK". As long as Windows Media Player is able to play the file, LOR sequence editor can use it.

Tried doing that. Once I fill in the information in the toolbar "New Musical Sequence Options", I hit OK and it said "error creating new musical sequence". The file is supported by Media Player, but is not compatible with LOR.

My guess is that LOR cannot handle a video stream so it's generating the error.

The "Windows Media Stream Editor" will allow you to extract the audio stream from the WMV file. This is a free download as part of the Windows Media 9 Series Encoder application (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=5691ba02-e496-465a-bba9-b2f1182cdf24&DisplayLang=en).

Extracting the stream in it's native form is much better than converting it because conversion processes will decompress and then compress it again resulting in a lower quality audio file.
