    convert ogg to mp3

    There is an oldish thread for building sox to include mp3:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=17272

    I want to convert ogg to mp3.

    I folowed the steps carefully.

    In the rules file I remove:

    --without-lame
    from
    DEB_CONFIGURE_EXTRA_FLAGS
    leaving
    --with-distro="Debian GNU/Linux" --with-dyn-default --without-amrwb --without-amrnb

    I always get something like:

    FAIL formats: can't open output file `/tmp/t.mp3': SoX was compiled without MP3 encoding support

    mp3 not working.

    Anyone know how to do this, or know of a different way of converting ogg to mp3?

    Thanks a bundle

    Easier to convert using soundconverter (gtk, gnome etc) or soundkonverter (qt, KDE)

    That works a treat - thanks a bundle.
    I also found I could ogg123 them to wav, then reencode with lame; I used a shell script.
    But soundconverter looks much niftier.
    Thanks again,
    Abe

    They are both great little programs, I use them to convert .flac to .mp3 for my media player. Which will actually play .flac, but there isnt quite enough space to fit the amount of music I want on there.

    Glad it helped
