    need converter from .ogg or .wav to .amr

    Can anyone recommend a sound converter that can take a .ogg or a .wav file and convert it to .amr?

    We are programming for a Nokia phone and we need to record some .amr files. I've got my microphone working, but the recording software only saves in ogg and wav.

    cheers!

    It is a good viewpoint to see the world as a dream. When you have something like a nightmare, you will wake up and tell yourself that it was only a dream...

    This may do it: a GUI frontend to ffmpeg - http://winff.org/

    It's in the repos:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install winff

    Oh, I answered my own question. There is a good program called: Mobile Media Converter from Miksoft. They have a Ubuntu/DEB package.

    Hi Spearfish,

    If you wanted to use FFmpeg directly have a look at this guide:

    HOWTO: Install and use the latest FFmpeg and x264
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=786095

    and then you can easily convert your files with syntax similar to the following:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i input.wav -acodec libopencore_amrnb \
            -ac 1 -ar 8000 -r 25 -ab 12200 output.3gp
    I double checked this with a test file and it ran nicely:

    Code:
    andrew@skamandros~/Desktop$ ffmpeg -i input.wav -acodec libopencore_amrnb \
    >         -ac 1 -ar 8000 -r 25 -ab 12200 output.3gp

    From what I remember Audacity can perform the function you are looking for. It's available on Windows, and in Ubuntu's Software Center. Open the .ogg file and then choose to export it as a .wav. I know it worked for me on Windows, but I only recently tried out Ubuntu so I'm still learning,
