AIF to Blackberry: Convert AIF(AIFF/AIFC Apple Audio) video to Blackberry with River Past Crazi Video
Short for Audio
Interchange File Format, a common format for storing and transmitting sampled
sound. The format was developed by Apple Computer and is the standard audio
format for Macintosh computers. It is
also used by Silicon Graphics Incorporated
The AIFF format is uncompressed so AIFF files tend to be large. However,
there is another format called AIFF-Compressed (AIFF-C or AIFC) that supports
compression ratios as high as 6:1.
AIFF files generally end with an .AIF or .IEF extension.
AIFC files generally end with an .AIFC extension.
AIFF and AIFC are standard audio format used on MacOS systems. AIFF is not
compressed. AIFC is compressed.
Windows can decodec uncompressed AIFF. However, to decode AIFC, you
need to have Apple QuickTime
Launch Crazi Video
Install Crazi Video, launch Crazi Video.
Click on the "Add File" button on the tool bar. The standard file open dialog appears. Select "AIFF/AIFC - MacOS AIFF" in its "Files of type" combo box.
Select the file you want to convert and click "Open". The file will be added to the conversion file list.
If the AIF file is uncompressed (normally with "aif" or "aiff" file extension), Windows should be able to decode it without any problem. However, compressed AIFC files may require QuickTime.
If you cannot add the AIF file, you may need to install QuickTime. We use QuickTime to decode compressed AIFC files.
