Question .wma decoder


Does anyone know of a command line based .wma decoder and possibly a .wma encoder.
I've tried mplayer, but I can't successfully get it to work.
I'm also looking for a .ra decoder/encoder, any ideas on that as well?

Thanks in advance.

You need to get the codec's from the mplayer website and install them to a path, then configure the player of choice [xine for me, but..] to use that path for codec's.

the path you need to install the codecs is /usr/lib/win32. Xine and Mplayer usually search that path for codecs by default, unless you state otherwise.

for me xine had no path defined in the .config file.
it had a commented out .usr/src/win32 though.

o.k.
I got mplayer to decode .wma and .ra files,
but I can't get it to encode either.
I got the codecs installed, so I guess the problem I have is that I can't figure out what to type as the command to get it to call upon these codecs and encode the files.
Does anyone know what I should use for the command?
thanks

Thanks, but to my knowledge, mencoder only deals with video files. I couldn't find anything on .wma or .ra ... only .wmv and .rv.
