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