How to Convert CAF Files to MP3/AAC/WAV on Mac

"I have iTunes on my computer but the CAF file still won't play. It doesn't even allow me to choose what to open it with."--Jackson from

As is well acknowledged, the CAF file format was specially developed by Apple Inc for storing audio. Besides, some programs such as Pro and Logic Studio also use the .caf format. Given the fact that the CAF is not a popular file format and it cannot be supported by most portable devices and media players, only the users who run Mac OS X 10.4 and higher can play CAF files smoothly, while the Mac OS X 10.3 needs QuickTime 7 to be installed. Now, it is pretty clear that why Jackson failed to play .caf files on iTunes. Even worse, if we would like to play the CAF video files on non-Apple devices such as Windows Media Player, Android mobile phones, PS4, Xbox One, etc, we are out of luck as well.

Any idea to save us from this face-palm moment? How to make the CAF files playable on those media devices smoothly? Trying to convert CAF files to a more popular audio format like CAF to MP3 might be a best solution. Reason is obvious that MP3 format has got better compatibility than the CAF.
