How to Convert AMR to MP4 in High Quality

By Cecilia Hwung | Last Update:

AMR is a file format for storing spoken audio using the AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate) codec, which is a compression format developed for encoding audio files that are primarily speech-based. AMR files are widely used as voice recordings on mobile phones like Apple iPhone (until iOS 4.3), Android, and BlackBerry devices.

While AMR is unlikely to give ideal results for other audio, and many modern mobile phones are beginning to use more compatible formats. When it comes to compatibility, the MP4 format is hard to beat. So this article will show you how to convert AMR to MP4 in high quality without extra costs.
