Description:

audiokonverter is a service menu (and also a commandline utility) to easily convert from MP3, OGG, AMR, AAC, M4A, FLAC, WMA, RealAudio, Musepack, Wavpack, WAV and movies to MP3, OGG, M4A, WAV and FLAC in Konqueror by right-clicking on them. It needs ffmpeg/avconv, oggenc, oggdec, faac, faad, flac, mplayer and lame to work. id3lib is optional for full functionality. Also optional are vorbis-tools and metaflac for handling other metadata. See README how/where to get that software.
Be sure about needed software when installing prebuilt packages!

Please vote for "good" if you like the program. There are many downloads with each release, but only a few votes.

Thanks, very good idea ;-)
simple using.

What's about mpc format, very useful, and the best in quality ?

The problem is that I don't want to bloat the servicemenu too much. I think the userbase for monkey, mpc, etc. files is too small to annoy a regular user with too many options.

I can think of extra projects like kwavencoder.mpc and kwavencoder.ape, but then only conversion from and to WAV, like with FLAC.

This is a real time saver for anyone who converts between audio formats (ogg > mp3 or mp3 > ogg). Perhaps you could add support for flac, mad, and monkey as well.

Please test kwavencoder.ape for monkey files.

Excellent work! All formats FLAC, APE, MPC, OGG, and MP3 convert to and from very nicely.

What are mad files? I only know the mp3 decoding library.
For monkey files I did not find a linux program.

Sorry to throw you off a little. You are right there are no such things as mad files as mad is simply a decoder and encoder. In so far as monkey is concerned I see that they have not produced a Linux version yet. Anyway thanks for adding support for flac. This will certainly make the program more versatile.

I found a monkey binary at http://www.personal.uni-jena.de/~pfk/mpp/index2.html#ape
But I doubt that many people have it installed since no Linux player can play those files.

Actually there is a plugin available for xmms to play .ape files.You can find it here http://web.mit.edu/ddopson/xmms-mac. Thanks for the link to the mac binary and both of these items work.

K3b project has made a Monkey's Audio Encoder and Decoder plugin.

Great idea, even greater since my k3b can't burn mp3:s ;-) One small thing though, when I select several file and want to convert them to wav it pops up one konsole for each file, wouldn't it be possible to send all files to one konsole?

You can burn Mp3 in K3b as data. They play in a standalone DVD player. So you know.

Replying to an almost three years old comment, nice;-)

The problem with k3b and mp3 had something to do with mixing debs from woody and broken backports, or something, so you know.

I know this is a backdraw, but until now I did not find a way to make this work for filenames with spaces. When piping all filenames at once, the separator is a space...
Any hint how to do this is welcome.

I have already too many service menues. Specially with images. Could it ask you for the resolution later?
For instance, in the service menue you only have Convert to Ogg and Convert to Mp3. Clicking it you have a litle window for choosing between several qualities.

Just an idea.

Another solution would be to put all of them in a folder in the service menue. This looks simpler, but I like the first one more.

I agree. Maybe just kdialog with list of bitrates?

(Just because i prefer 256, for example... and servicemenu will be more accurate and nice-looking :)

one newbie question:
Ogg workd, but not Mp3:

nice: lame: No such file or directory
why?

Otherwise it is a great tool, keep on with good work!

Report

That is because you do not have lame installed, the mp3 encoder. (Propably due to legal issues.) So you should get it for your distribution if you want to make mp3s.

Good job on this!

What about including the possibility to convert all wavs in a folder? Or multiple file selection..

Greetings,

Don't believe the README ;-)
Multiple file selection should work (with parallel encoding). With directories you have to do recursion, that bears too many problems at the moment.
