View Full Version : [ubuntu] changing music format

December 8th, 2009, 07:16 AM
HI there. How can I change a song with a flac to an mp3?

ffmpeg and if you need a graphical version, WinFF.

Try using Soundconverter thats what I use to do this

I agree with the recommendation for Sound Converter. It's super easy to use and converts basically anything to anything.

be sure to get soundconverter and not soundkonverter. soundkonverter is unable to convert to mp3

Thank you sooo much! Sound converter works perfectly and it is extremely simple.

Excuse me if I`m wrong about this, but I take it you want to convert flac to mp3 so that you can put the song(s) on an mp3 player.

If you load your mp3player with banshee, it will convert it for you.

This saves you having 2 copies of your music library. Actually I mean 3 copies because you have a backup.

Is it me or ubuntuforums are having problem? It seems last new thread was created 8 hours ago in absolute beginner section and my user Control panel is not updating Subscriptions. Are you having the same problems mate? Thanks

Indeed, it seems only existing thread may be responded to.. and new posts aren't visible, even though they do exist, I guess.
Pretty strange.

And the quote button doesn't work either.

Yeh! it seems there is a problem with forums. But i can't find any announcement or notification of this?

December 10th, 2009, 02:25 PM
Maybe they created a new thread to announce it, and it isn't showing up.

December 10th, 2009, 02:27 PM
in that case, emails should work to all forum members I guess!

December 10th, 2009, 03:23 PM
i have threads in my User CP that ive veiwed but there still there as having new content??

December 10th, 2009, 03:40 PM
yeh same is happening to me. Forums gone bonkers...

I posted a new thread in Forums & help section, it is not visible either.

Only thing seems to be working is reply to already created threads.

You guys should not even be online, according to the frontpage there is only one active member and that member is me. :confused:

lol. It is like time freeze and i am the only loner left in the wilderness.

Another thread we've hijacked (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1350934).

Yeh! This was gnome screensaver deb package with malicous bash script.I have seen that script someowhere on forums - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1349678. Someone had screensaver installed with this invisible bash script running which deleted .gnome from user space and changed permissions to 777 for user shell and bashrc to ping own server and run bots to spread spams or some sort.

gnome-look has removed it now! Nothing is trusted outside repos

This has nothing to do with forums behaving abnormally though.

Forums were taken down for about 10 mins but problem seems to be still there!

Thats interesting, since I have converted flac-> mp3 with soundkonverter.
