Holy hell! You found someone who uses Musepack and FLAC?! That is amazing. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Well, I am 99% sure that you aren't getting anywhere with WMP, and I have no idea about WinAmp, as I used it for all of 30 minutes before deciding I didn't like it. I'm sure there are converters out there though. Why? Because both Musepack and FLAC are open source codecs. That said, you can either lookaround for something small, or check the MP3 converter thread in which I discussed the use of the VUPlayer for converting. Don't have time to look for a straight converter right now, but might edit this post, or post again if I get time and find one.
Good luck in the meantime. XD

i found the program to do it. it's called Audio Converter Studio Ver 4.8, you need to register if you want it for full, if its just a one-off situation like me, just click the trial mode, don't know how long it'll last though......
Trial... mode..... beurk! XP
I hate trial software. So, I found you some. Never tried it... don't know if it is any good, but worth a shot. If it is good, might be worth keeping around. I personally don't have any use for THAT many formats, but you never know.
Install that, and then I guess you can get format addins (which is what I'm counting on here).
These look like self installing EXE files, but if not, I would assume you place them in the program directory somewhere... I'm sure it won't be that hard to figgure out. Freeware is usually well organized.
GRAB THE FOLLOWING AT THE LEAST:
AAC, Apple Quicktime, AVI sound, FLAC, LA, LPAC, APE, MP3, MPC, OGG Vorbis, OptimFROG, Real Audio, TTA, VQF, WAV, WavPack, and WMA.
That will cover more or less anything that you will ever run into... if you want to grab the rest (one was for frick'n cell phone tones, so whatever), go for it. Couldn't hurt, I guess.
If you do try it (if anyone reads this and trys the software), let me know how it is. It looks really good. Hard to find a Windows App on par with Perl Audio Converter... but that may just do it.
