    I have been searching all over Google for a conversion tutorial to convert stereo MP3 to stereo AC3 music 2-channel format. Not a video format. I have music that are in .mp3. They will play on my iPhone in MP3 format, but I rather use the proper AC3 format. Are there any tutorials?

    Also, are there tutorials for convert FLAC to AC3?

    If possible, could BeSweet do the work, BeLite? I mean the GUI part?

    Are you sure about this question?
    I think that iPhones play aac audio, not AC3.

    BeSweet has the ability, but its AC3 output has been criticised.


    dBPowerAmp Music Converter can do it all, in batches.
    Version 10 is still freeware and can handle all the formats.

    AC3 is really only used for videos though. Why do you want to use it?

    If it is AAC you want, dBpowerAMP can do that.
    Get the codecs for the free version here: http://www.dbpoweramp.com/legacy/codec-central-legacy.htm

    Thank you for the correction.

    Anyway, are there tutorials for converting MP3 to AAC? Are there tutorials for converting FLAC to AAC?

    Would dBPowerAmp convert to AAC?

    See http://www.dbpoweramp.com/legacy/codec-central-mp4.htm
    It says it needs Nero Digital Audio to encode to AAC.
    Which you can get here: http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central-m4a.htm

    (I haven't done this myself, I used dBpowerAMP for FLAC, AC3 and MP3 conversions.)

    You might find other tools here: https://www.videohelp.com/tools?toolsearch=AAC

    Perhaps fre:ac might be worth a try.

    I tried dBPowerAmp first with both codecs installed. I didn't see a drop down list for the AAC. I'm lost. I didn't know which one to download, so I downloaded them both.

    I just got Lame XP, and Nero AAC. I installed Lame XP, and I extracted the Nero AAC to a folder on my desktop. I am not too sure on how the command line works.

    Which method should I use between both apps? How do I use them?

    Lame XP is a simple to use GUI, you don't have to use command lines or anything

    You just extract the contents nero aac zip folder to the Lame XP folder (there should be 3 exe's) , and double click LameXP.exe

    The rest is pretty straight forward, you can just drop & drag

    Freemake can do audio conversions between the major formats - MP3/AAC/AC3. Simple to use. Haven't compared quality with other solutions though.
    Read my blog here.

    If you have an iPhone then you must have iTunes on your PC - you can convert to aac within iTunes
