Description:

This is a simple context menu for sound files to convert between one format and another. It prompts you for an extension (mp3, ogg, wav, etc) and then converts using ffmpeg. To install, extract the archive and then run the installer.sh script, or read the script and move files around accordingly.

Hi !

It seems to be the same app as "audioKonverter"
http://www.kde-apps.org/content/show.php/audiokonverter+(also+for+KDE4)?content=12608

But, you're using FFMPEG instead of all the dedicated decoders/encoders !? Right ?

My question is: what are the differences between your app and the "audioKonverter" ? Why develop a new one instead of improving the existing one ?

The big difference is that my ConvertAudio is a shell script and uses ffmpeg. I didn't find audiokonverter in my searches, otherwise I would have used that. I wrote ConvertAudio to see if I could write a working menu; when it became useful I decided to share it.

OK !!

One extra note, for ubuntu users (>= 8.10), if you want to have MP3 support with FFMPEG, you should install these extra packages:
libavcodec-unstripped-51
libavdevice-unstripped-52
libavformat-unstripped-52
libavutil-unstripped-49
libpostproc-unstripped-51
libswscale-unstripped-0
