    What is the most accessible audio file format?

    Good Morning from -1 Degrees C, sunny, 3 inches of snow, Wakefiled UK :-)

    Heres the situation... I recoded an interview off the radio which I want to upload onto a website. The file extension is .M4a (used my ipod). I can only open it in Quicktime which concerns me.

    So my question is - if I convert it to a different file format what should it be to make it more accessible IE the majority of users could open it without hasstles.

    And what should I use to convert it?

    After googling around the problem it was suggested MP3 would be the most accessible format for web users.

    Any insights welcome :-)
