Question mp3 to ogg conversion


Hi all,

Is there a means to convert MP3 to OGG directly. I dont want to go through the MP3 --> WAV --> OGG path. I found two programs. One is a perl script called mp32ogg and the other is an application called mp3tovorbis.

The mp3tovorbis app compiled properly. But it does not install the binary, just the man page and I could not understand head or tail as to why that was happening. Then I tried mp32ogg. The damn thing is one little perl script that wants a million other things that it dependes on.

Is there an easier (repeat.... easier.. as in total noob easier program that I can use) I have Mandy 9.1 on my system.

Please Help.....

I would not recommend converting from mp3 to ogg. Both are lossy compression formats and you will lose even more quality in the transition.

mp32ogg is a perl script that will convert a file to ogg or an entire directory tree if you wish.
