audio conversion problems,,,


I checked the wiki and I found how to convert between different audio formats. But, I couldn't find how to convert an ogg format to mp3. Please tell me what commands/scripts/programs I would use to get this done. By the way, im on ubuntu 5.04 if that makes any difference.

ogg2mp3 would be an obvious choice... but there will be dozens of ways to do it.

This requires vorbis-tools and lame.

#!/bin/sh
# Convert all ogg vorbis files in current directory to mp3 files.

for file in *.ogg ; do
oggdec "$file"
wavfile=`basename "$file" .ogg`.wav
mp3file=`basename "$file" .ogg`.mp3
lame "$wavfile" "$mp3file"
rm "$wavfile"
# Uncomment the next line if you want the ogg vorbis files to be removed
# rm "$file"
done

It'll result in a pretty low-quality copy tho - two lossy formats applied to one track? Not good!

Thanx a lot guys. It doesn't really matter thought that the quality isn't that great, I'll live. I just needed the files to work on my ipod.
