Software :: Convert A Bunch Of .ogg Files To Mp3 To Play On IPod - Unable To Convert With Sound Converter?

May 3, 2009

I have Ubuntu 9.04 and just installed Sound Converter. I am trying to convert a bunch of .ogg files to mp3 to play on my iPod and it's not working so well. In the Sound Converter options I have is set to convert to high quality mp3. I choose the folder that the files are in and after a moment (slow laptop) Sound Converter populates, I hit 'convert' and it shows that the conversion completes in two seconds. All that it did was create the new folder structure of artist/album but there is nothing in there. Not sure what I am missing. I used Sound Converter before and it worked fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Convert Ogg Files To MP3 With Sound Converter?

Jan 23, 2011

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.

Software :: Batch-convert A Bunch Of Old Wma Files To Ogg Vorbis?

Jan 15, 2010

I'm not asking for help here, just documenting something I just discovered. Yesterday I wanted to batch-convert a bunch of old wma files to ogg vorbis. Not wanting to go through intermediate wav files, I tried to use ffmpeg to do it in one go. I first tried using the following command (in a loop, which I won't print here).

ffmpeg -i $file -f ogg -acodec vorbis -ab 192k outputdir/$file "vorbis" turns out to be the built-in libavc implementation of the codec. In the process I discovered that the -ab value is always ignored. No matter what value you put, the output is always the default 64k (average, but of course it's vbr). You can however use the poorly-documented -aq option to set the audio quality used. The values don't correspond to the oggenc values though, being a number ranging from 10-100 (or more, I don't know what the maximum is). It's not exactly clear what number corresponds to what average bitrate, so you have to experiment. ~30 seems to give you an average-rate file, while anything above 60 is probably overkill.

Switching to the external libvorbis gave me more flexibility, although at a cost of much longer encoding times (note that ffmpeg must have been compiled with libvorbis support first).

ffmpeg -i $file -f ogg -acodec libvorbis -ab 192k outputdir/$file
ffmpeg -i $file -f ogg -acodec libvorbis -aq 6 outputdir/$file

I could use both -ab and -aq (with the numbers corresponding to the oggenc values), with no problems. ffmpeg does display some wrong values in it's output text, however. In addition, there's one more difference. The vorbis (libavc) codec provides an entry in the header of the ogg container reporting the average bitrate, but it doesn't appear to provide a similar bitrate header in the vorbis stream itself. Some programs may not report the bitrate value because of this.

libvorbis provides both headers, avoiding that problem. So to summarize, libvorbis appears to be a better codec choice than vorbis.

Software :: FLAC Files To Convert Or Not To Convert To CD-DA?

Dec 24, 2010

I have a lot of .flac files downloaded from several sites. Most of them come with a .cue file, and the .jpg with the cover, etc. It seems it is the intention of the uploader that one rebuilds the original CDDA. However, if I had a stand-alone CD/DVD player with flac I would hardly see the point of converting the flac to cdda. Furthermore, I could even play the flacs with a software player although, in this case, the audio quality would not be so good due to the noise picked up by the signal from the PC digital circuits.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Use K9 Copy When Try To Convert A DVD To MPEG Files Using The Method Without Encoding

Jan 15, 2010

I have been having a problem with K9 Copy whenever I try to convert a DVD to MPEG files using the method without encoding, but for some reason lately it seems to be splitting each episode I am trying to rip into about 6 or 7 pieces instead of just one.

I never usually have a problem with this, but for some reason it seems to be doing this whenever I try to rip something. I am running on Obuntu 9.10 and have K9Copy version 2.3.0 installed. I have tried installing several other versions, but it does the same thing with each.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Convert To .avi To Play On Xbox 360?

Jun 11, 2011

I have some videos in .mkv that I need to convert to .avi to play on my Xbox 360. I started out trying ffmpeg, but ran into some errors. I tried some of the GUI options available, but they didn't work for me either and I prefer command line anyway. So I'm back to trying to get ffmpeg to work. I started off with:

ffmpeg -i movie.mkv movie.avi This gives me the Error while opening codec etc etc due to not specifying enough parameters. So if I try something like:
ffmpeg -i movie.mkv -vcodec copy -acodec copy movie.avi
I get "av_interleaved_writeframe(): Error while opening file" error


So at this point I have an idea how to make it work, but am lacking some info. I figure if I try to go from .mkv to .avi while giving it the correct codec options -vcodec and -acodec it will know what to do and give me a workable result. The problem is I don't know what those codecs are. Is there another way for me to work this?
