Where can I find a WMA to Mp3 (or Ogg) converter?


I know someone here has to have dealt with this issue, but all my searches lead nowhere. I have a portion of my music colection in the dreaded WMA format and need to convert the music so I can play it on my Zaurus. Can someone point me to a Linux based conversion utility that can get my music out of the proprietary wma format?

MPlayer - for all your media needs!

You can effectively 'convert' any media file that MPlayer can play (and there are lots) into a .wav file, from which you can encode as you wish. You probably can convert straight to mp3/ogg with MPlayer, but I've never played with it.

mplayer file.wma -ao pcm

I thought Zaurus is LINUX based. You should be able to find any program (like mplayer) and compile the program for Zaurus. Oh well, that command will work too. Also you can use XMMS if you have the WMA and disk writer plugin installed.
