“I have downloaded many Apple Music songs on my iTunes library and want to convert them to AC3 format for playing on my QuickTime player. What’s the best way to do that?”
AC3 is an audio file specifically developed by Dolby Digital to provide surround sound audio. It can include up to six channels of audio (DD 5.1 surround sound with subwoofer output); uses lossy compression and often used as the format for DVDs, cinema theaters, and game consoles. It became the de facto standard for surround sound, and has held that position since its inception in 1992, with it coming to home cinema in 1995.
Apple Music is a very popular music streaming platform that offers all the on-demand music you need, and you can access over 50 million songs in the library. Among them, Beats 1 TV station provides live broadcast 24 hours a day, including DJ Zane Lowe. You can find the latest albums in Apple Music, like Taylor Swift's ME! Therefore, this music service is more and more widely used and it applies to all Apple key products, including iOS devices, Apple TV and Apple Watch, and can be used on Mac / PC via iTunes and Android devices. In addition, you can stream Apple Music through CarPlay and Sonos systems as well as Amazon Echo products. Like other streaming servers, Apple Music offers you a free trial and long-term subscription plan. New users can try Apple Music for free for 90 days. After the free trial expires, you will need to pay a personal plan of $9.99 per month. A family plan, which is good for up to six people, is priced at $14.99/month.
