    Angry Can't convert to mp3... avconv: libmp3lame not found!

    Hi!

    I'm experiencing troubles converting video to mp3.
    I just did a fresh install of ubuntu 12.04.
    These commands
    Code:
    avconv -i test.flv test.mp3
    Code:
    avconv -acodec libmp3lame -i test.flv test.mp3
    Code:
    avconv -acodec libmp3lame0 -i test.flv test.mp3
    give all an error. Either
    Code:
    Encoder (codec id 0) not found for output stream #0:0
    or
    Code:
    Unknown encoder 'libmp3lame(0)'
    On ubuntu 10.04 the second command used to work.

    Also, the package manager tells me I have the package "libmp3lame0" installed.

    Does anyone know what I can do?
    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you very much!!
    That immediately solved the problem. The 2nd command from the previous post works now.

    well i had never heard of avconv [usually would use ffmpeg or sox]


    but quite a choice here and installed by default

    Note, the names of encoders and decoders do not always match, so there are
    several cases where the above table shows encoder only or decoder only entries
    even though both encoding and decoding are supported. For example, the h263
    decoder corresponds to the h263 and h263p encoders, for file formats it is even
    worse.
    also a little trick

    avconv knows to use libmp3lame so no need for that; on the other hand --ab allows you to retain the original audio contained in your video and to pass it on as was

    check properties on the vid file
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i inputfile
    or
    mediainfo inputfile
    then

    avconv -i infile.flv -ab 192k outfile.mp3
    or whatever bitrate is

    Re: Can't convert to mp3... avconv: libmp3lame not found!

    I also used to use ffmpeg, but it appears that ffmpeg is only supported for compatibilty reasons nowadays. avconv is the recommended program to use. The syntax for avconv is similar to the syntax for ffmpeg.

    Type ffmpeg in the terminal, and you'll probably get:
    "This program is not developed anymore and is only provided for compatibility. Use avconv instead (see Changelog for the list of incompatible changes)."

    Re: Can't convert to mp3... avconv: libmp3lame not found!

    Some ffmpeg devs tried to perform a coup, but were unable to secure the ffmpeg name and the ffmpeg website, so they instead forked the project. Both avconv and ffmpeg are actively developed, and each project incorporates improvements from the other side regularly.

    For some reason Ubuntu went with the avconv fork but really it doesn't make a difference, as avconv and ffmpeg are essentially the same program.

    oh i see that would explain why --formats and --codecs yield the same in both or thereabouts

    Specifically libavcodec-extra-53 (or 52 or 51 depending on your Ubuntu version) if you don't want to download and install all the other ubuntu-restricted-extras stuff.

    A terribly worded statement as unfamiliar users may imply that the FFmpeg project is "not developed anymore" which is untrue of course. I (and mc4man among others) tried to get it changed in time for 12.04.

    Okay, thanks for letting know. I indeed assumed that this means that ffmpeg is not developed anymore. I fully agree that it would be a good idea to change this info in the ffmpeg help, as you said.

    The fork has been rather bitter......
    You think that's air you're breathing now?
