I've had no trouble with it until attempting to add new music to my banshee music library and ipod. I've copied the music into my music folder and tried to convert to MP3 with sound converter but it keeps popping up with the warning "Cannot overwrite source files". I tried to convert the files to MP3 directly from the cd but that didn't work either.
I am using Jessie. 64 bits. I have been using Sound Converter in other distros (LMDE, Ubuntu, etc) in the past.Jessie has Sound Converter 2.1.3. I think I have installed the needed codecs. When I try to convert from mp4 to mp3, the program gets stuck, and nothing happens. Other formats can be converted.
When I use SoundKonverter (also in Jessie, version 2.1.1) it works with no problem, converting from mp4 to mp3. Nevertheless I would prefer to use Sound Converter.
I've been testing with the SoundConverter software and I want to write a script for it.Most music files on my pc are *.flac. But I want to convert some albums to my mp3 player with a script. Everything works fine. I do this:Code:soundconverter -b -m audio/mpeg -s .mp3 *.flacBut the quality is 128kbps.Is there any way to change the bitrate (in the terminal ofcourse)?And if this is not possible, is there an alternative that copies the tags correct like SoundConverter?
I have a whole bunch of songs in WMA and I would really like them in MP3. I paid for the songs and my husband really doesn't like downloading so that's not a option. I would really be upset if there were no way to get these back. I've tried to read a couple of sites but I don't understand any of it. Some people said to get Audacity but that program doesn't even open WMA...not even to import.
Trying to convert a midi file I created in Rosegarden into a wav file using Sound Converter. Snd Cnvrtr wants to load some gstreamer "bad" plugins, but they end up conflicting with "good" plugins and "ugly' plugins that had been loaded in the kernel (I think). Thought I might remove gstreamer and load up the "bad" plugins, but that meant removing a huge chunk of programming including Snd Cnvrtr. Anyone got any idea how I might do the conversion apart from Snd Cnvrtr? Either that or how I might get hold of the appropriate plugins to allow the midi to wav conversion to take place?
I've been trying to get soundconverter to work on ubuntu 10.10, I've checked I've got all the restricted packages installed, gone into synaptic and installed a bunch of gstreamer stuff, downloaded and compiled the latest version of soundconverter but whatever I do, the following happens:
1. open soundconverter
2. open file (wav)
3. set to convert to mp3 (default)
4. Click convert and instantly get the ever so helpful "general stream error" message!
Firefox started acting funny.On most video sites, but not all, there wouldbe no sound.Along with this, some of these sites would also have the glitch that videos would play for about 3 seconds, then stop. If I moved the slider to a different point in the video, it would again work for a few seconds, then stop. If I close FF and try to reopen, I get an error message that it is already running, although if I don't leave it openet that message.I then go to the system monitor and shut down the sleeping FF process, and can then restart FF and the problem is fixed for a few hours.
I used to have Windows XP on my desktop computer which was changed to Linux 9.10 awhile back and just recently I downloaded Linux 10.04. I am having problems with my screen while viewing websites and games I play freezing up. I have also noticed that it is very slow at times downloading sites I wish to view. The sound on videos and games comes and goes. I thought by upgrading to Linux 10.04 would fix the problems, but it has not.
I've downloaded a few suggested converters, but they don't seem t ohave the right combination..I have some .avi's (from my camera) and want to put them on my website (using Joomla AllVideo component) so they have to be converted to .flv or maybe .mov.
I am trying to find a way to convert MS Mpeg4 files to a format that is playable on Totem or any of the media players for Ubuntu. I have tried many converters, even trying ones in Windows (I really didn't want to but thought I would give it a shot)
I have installed all the limited FFMPEG and x2.64 restricted and limited libraries. I have all the multiverse and universe repositories. I have tried WINFF, Avidemux, DeVeDe but to no avail and now I am tearing my hair out. Totem cannot find any plugins suitable.
I have a set of archival files from a previous machine that ran windows and one of Microsoft's proprietary photo packages. I have a set of files with the extension .mix and can find no program to convert them. I have tried the ABC program but it fails with floating point exceptions.
I have a training CD for my job,its an interactive disk with audio clips etc. I want to try extract the audio which is in the .AUD format. I have tried SoundConverter but it does not recognize the extension.Firstly am I correct in saying the audio is the .AUD extension,there is another file in the same folder with .DAT extension.
What are some good VGA to HDMI converters that work well with linux? Any suggestions? I don't know the resolution I'm working with just yet, but it appears to be a 42" hd lcd tv/monitor. I think there's a VGA port on the back, but I'd rather route the signal through HDMI for better resolution.
I am looking for some conversion software to convert mp3 files to a format that will play on a standard CD player .cda so that I can listen to audio files whilst in my car. Does anyone know of such a converter.
I was looking for a converter to use on common avi files and maybe some others and came across this thread. I followed it all the way to where it asks me to install ConvertIt by adding the repos and then running Synaptic. I found convertit and marked for install and clicked apply and got this error:
Code: convertit: Depends: gambas2-runtime (<2.1) but 2.13.1-1ubuntu1 is to be installed Depends: gambas2-gb-qt (<2.1) but 2.13.1-1ubuntu1 is to be installed
So i check synaptic for that and i had them installed already from the guide. So i marked them all for reinstall since i installed them in the terminal the first time. Reinstalled and i still get the same error.
Any idea whats wrong? Or is there a better movie converter thats easier? I just want to re encode the files so the will play on my 360.
I'm trying to convert some songs I have in the Format .WMA to .MP3 searching around I found the program soundconverter, then installed it, only when I try to convert some music gives me an error saying that lack the decoder Windows Media Audio 9 also researched how solve this problem but got no success, I installed a lot of codecs and solved nothing.
So I still have a windows partition for two reasons: 1) Steam I know you can run this on wine and I have tried that, but I can;t run valve games at max everything (including AA and Filtering) and I like my good graphics so there is not much I can do about that. The other reason is AVS Video Converter, I've fallen in love with it, it converts anything to anything quickly and flawlessly, but I want an alternative to it for Ubuntu, something that works flawlessly just like AVS, to refine my needs more, I use it to convert video for my PSP.
You may all know about Total Video Converter, Any Video Converter and such used in Windows, where you chose codecs, like i want to convert to mp4 for my phone.
But.. there's one specific thing I'm looking for that most don't seem to have. Cutting. I need for example, to cut from 24:00 to 30:00, that is the only part i want cut and converted to mp4 ready for my phone.
