How to convert Audible AAX to MP3

By snorlaxprime

So you have audible subscription and you are enjoying tons of contents. But you are not able to download the audio file as MP3 because the file is in aax format that contain DRM (Digital Rights Management).

I found an easy way to convert the AAX to MP3, so here is the step by step instruction. I am using mac, so I download the mac version of the inAudible program.

Step 1. Download inAudible

You can get the inAudible from the following location: https://github.com/rmcrackan/inAudible

Find the file suitable for your operating system inside the _installers folder.

I am using a mac, so I am downloading the mac_inAudible009.zip file.

Step 2. extract the file

Once you extracted the zip file, you will have the inAudible file. Double click to execute the file. You will most likely not able to because the Mac is preventing you from executing file that is not downloaded from the app store. But no fear, go to your mac system Preferences->Security& Privacy, and click on “Open Anyway” button to allow you to execute app not downloaded from app store and identified developers.

Step 3. Open the AAX file and convert to MP3

Now that the program opens, select the AAX file, it will automatically create the output file in the same location as the original file.

Now you can select the codec as MP3, and click on “Begin Conversion” to convert the AAX to MP3. Now you can enjoy the MP3 file in your other devices that doesn’t support AAX format.
