    Re: Convert mp3 to AAC

    Hi Andrew
    I know that Winff v1.3 is available for Windows, but so far the Ubuntu version isn't available from the Winff PPA.

    The source code is available from the Winff website.
    Do you have instructions how to compile Winff to make a deb?

    Well, interestingly enough the source code contains nothing debian at all, I suspect that the debian package is made by Mr Gevers. I actually built WinFF on my other distro but it should be just as easy to do on Ubuntu, which is where I found the instructions . It is written in Pascal so you will need fpc, fpc-source and lazarus. Download the WinFF source and extract it. Then start lazarus and open the file winff.lpi and select 'build all' from the lazarus run menu. This will build the executable.

    On my own setup I only use this executable and a presets.xml file in $HOME/.winff/, placing the executable in $HOME/bin which is in my path. With no shame I discard the icons, desktop menu, man pages etc . It is a little bare bones but it works well enough for me. If you have any trouble I can install it on Ubuntu and help you troubleshoot?

    There seems to be a .deb for maverick/lucid, as far as karmic (ron), doing what Andrew suggests may be better

    (though you could try installing the lucid .deb and see what transpires - the dep.'s
    Depends: ffmpeg, xterm | x-terminal-emulator, libatk1.0-0 (>= 1.29.3), libc6 (>= 2.3.6-6~), libcairo2 (>= 1.2.4), libglib2.0-0 (>= 2.12.0), libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.8.0), libpango1.0-0 (>= 1.14.0), libx11-6

    OK
    That was easy enough to compile with Lazarus.
    Then replaced winff in /usr/bin folder with the new version.
    I keep my own modified presets file.

    Synaptic still shows v1.2 installed so when v1.3 is available through PPA I suppose it will update automatically.
    This new Winff has additional crop options.

    D'oh!! I wrestled with a very raw Lazarus / Free Pascal installation under Slackware for hours .

    But users of the svn FFmpeg will note that it uses -croptop etc rather than the very swish video filter system now available to the latest svn. But I guess the commandline svn FFmpeg and WinFF have different purposes.

    This is a Nautilus integratable solution. In short words:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install wavpack mppenc libmpcdec3 faac flac vorbis-tools faad lame nautilus-script-audio-convert
    I'm trying to do the same thing and found this old thread. I wonder if somebody who understands these things could update it. It tried the above and got:

    Unable to locate package libmpcdec3

    Cool. Although I had all the tools to convert the files from other discussions and sources, I coul dnot get them to work, and I was actually looking for something to put on my son's DSi XL. Although all my music is in MP3 format, his game console only plays those AAC-encoded files, and those never worked, until I found *YOUR* message about this file extension change. My son will be very happy !!!!!!

    This is a Nautilus integratable solution. In short words:

    Right-click the file to convert and choose: "Scripts -> ConvertAudioFile"

    With DSi you still have to rename the output file to either .3gp or .m4a. Othewise DSi will not recognise the files.
