I'm not sure where the best place to post this is, but I need to convert WMA files to WAV.  An algorithm would be fine, but actually if anyone knows of any free software that will do it, that would be great!

 

(Please not a website that I submit and then download a converted file, and not something that expires, like Total Audio Converter.  That works great but then it stops.)

Foobar2000 has the capacity as well, I believe. If you were to do it in code, you'd probably use the DirectShow APIs.

I tried Audacity, but it won't let me import WMA files because they're patented and proprietary (but that doesn't necessarily seem to stop programs).

I don't believe this.  I want to convert files from WMA to WAV for free, but maybe I should clarify that when I say free, I mean WITHOUT registration or any kind of DRM.  I absolutely HATE that garbage, and the computer I'm running it on doesn't have an Internet connection so there's no way I can, or would, register it.

 

I tried to use the Free MP3 WMA WAV converter software that claims to be free, but then requires registration.  I call that a price!

 

Would someone please recommend one that is actually both free and DRM free?

 

At the very least, could I please have an algorithm to write my own?  But I would really prefer just a program to do it for me.  Thank you!

I've never checked if winamp can open WMA files or not, but it can write anything it can play to WAV files. I don't know if winamp can be downloaded still or not. Their web page looks like the llama got fed up and whipped back.
