Converting mp3 to ogg
Hi, I want to convert my mp3's to ogg. I know there is a "mp3ogg" script out there that converts it for you. The problem is, the names of my mp3's contain white spaces. The result, for example is this:
sohail@linux ~/music/Bjork]$ mp3ogg Bjork\ -\ Army\ of\ Me.mp3
mp3ogg v 1.1.2 mp3 to ogg conversion script
Remove original mp3 files after ogg conversion? [y/N]:n
ls: Bjork: No such file or directory
ls: -: No such file or directory
ls: Army: No such file or directory
ls: of: No such file or directory
ls: Me.mp3: No such file or directory
The trival suggestion ofcource would be to rename my mp3's. But I kinda have alot of 'm (Don't tell the RIAA ). And most of them contain white spaces.
Also doing :
mp3ogg "Bjork - Army of Me.mp3"
doesn't work either. How can I get arond this stuped problem.
When I convert from ogg to mp3 (I know, but I bought a $40 DVD player that only plays mp3), I did the following.
In Konqueror, right clicked on an ogg, open with 'other'. In the command line entered 'oggdec' and selected the option to 'Open in terminal'' and
selected 'Remember this app for this mime type' (mostly so I can watch progress'.
Now, using Konqeuror, I can select any number and open wth 'oggdec' and Konqeuror takes care of the spaces, and passed the file into oggdec. This converts to wav (1/2 the time I burn CDs 1/2 covert to mp3)
I did the exactly similar thing with 'wav' and saved a mime type to open with 'notlame <options>'
You can now use Konqeuror to select multiple files and 'open with' in parallel. (Although I have only notlamed 200 .wav files at once). Computer took 2 1/1 hours to complete taks). It should only take a minute or two for you to add the 'mp3toogg' mimetype.
"mplayer -ao help" prints info about audio output modules.
Available audio output drivers:
pcm RAW PCM/WAVE file writer audio output
If that output plugin will write to standard output, then you can pipe it directly into a compressor program. Otherwise you can write out the whole PCM/WAVE file, or use a fifo as the output file and have the compressor program read from that (see "man mkfifo").
