mp3 and wma to ogg, how can I do that?


Hello everyone.
I am using FC4 and it lacks a good tool to play mp3 or wma.
I have a large collection of these file and I really love it.
On FC4, I can compile neither mplayer nor xine, the rpm package
it shows me didn't contains gmplayer file, so I have to use mplayer
through a console and don't like it.

Is there any way to convert mp3 and wma to Ogg so other
software cand handle them?

i presume you've just not found out that you need into install third party mp3 support for the apps? no need to reencode a single thing. FC4 is totally capable of playing them, they simply remove the codecs for potentially theoretical legal issues that no one else cares about at all.

i don't know, i don't use fedora... the first one to be subjected to this ordeal was xmms, and they would host an rpm on their xmms.org site.

as for wma... i'm happy to say i've never used them, but i typed in "wma xmms" in google and lo... loads of support.

You don't need to use fedora. Just tell me what are you using and I will try.
Please ignore any software that don't support playlist creation.

The answer is right here on LQ:

I recommend Mplayer but ironically don't see it in the above link...

The point is that i DO use the programs that you're using. However the versions i use on Gentoo have not been fiddled around with the remove the functionality.
