    PC shuts down when converting files to mp3

    When I use Sound Converter or Soundkorverter to convert .ogg files to mp3, during the process the pc shuts down. Is it a software or hardware problem? It seems to happen only when I do that.

    Perhaps Sound Converter has an option ticked to shut down once the conversion process is completed (look in Preferences or options)

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
    ffmpeg -i /input/file.ogg -acodec libmp3lame /output/file.mp3

    Hello!

    What sort of hardware are you running? How CPU intensive is the process? Have you monitored your CPU temperature?

    Thanks.

    Thank you, but it seems that there is no option like that.

    How can I check the temperature? What do you need to know about the hardware? The processor is Intel® Core™ i3 CPU M 380 @ 2.53GHz × 4, the pc is a Samsung R540. The operating system is Ubuntu 12.04.
