The best program that you could use in order to convert .M3U to .MP3 and .MP4 files is the Atara sound converter. This is just one of the application's functions. In fact, it allows you to transform a very wide array of audio formats between each other. The program is available for download at the following website: http://audioconverter.axaramedia.com/ , and you may find a comprehensive review for it at http://axara-audioconverter.software.informer.com/1.8/

For converting .XML files to the .MP3 and .MP4 formats, the process is a bit more complex. .XML files basically represent databases, which store specific information/instructions as to how a larger program should function. As such, there is no piece of software available that may convert them directly to an audio or video file format. Nevertheless, you may approach the process indirectly, by first converting the .XML files into the .M3U format, and then re-converting the output into .MP3 or .MP4. For this purpose, you may use the iSkysoft application, which is available at the website
http://www.iskysoft.com/imedia-converter-windows.html , and on which you may find more information at http://iskysoft-imedia-converter.software.informer.com/3.0/.

.m3u file extension is not a popular format like mp3 or mp4. It is quite special.

M3U is a text file saved with ā€œ.m3uā€ filename extension for emailing or for listening to Internet radio. M3U file may contain a multimedia playlist or URLs or some pathnames to the media files and/or folders. M3U file is not an actual file. It has a stream which is often used in downloading from a website. That is why the M3U files we have are quite small, most in Kbyte.

To convert M3U to MP3 or MP4, we cannot treat it like a common format and find any software to do it. There are quite little software can manage it even though some ads they can do it. We had better use VLC media player to stream .m3u files and then convert them freely.
