Ok, basically, I have tried to find out about this, but can't find an answer. Basically, in my music collection, I have everything in Flac, in folder Music > Flac > Artist > Album > title.flac

Basically, I want everything in the Flac folder to go to Mp3, and Ogg folder, and be converted.

Music > Mp3 > Artist > Album > title.mp3

and

Music > Ogg > Artist > Album > title.ogg

Is there an easy way to convert all of my Flacs like this straight away? or not? I thought using sound converter might do it, but I don't know whether it will keep my folder structure, and also I don't know how to do a batch convert.

Thanks

I think soundconverter will do it but perhaps worth trying with just a single file from each folder first.
EDIT:
Yes it works perfectly on my system. Just make sure in Preferences that you set for the converted file to be placed in the same folder as the source, and until you have checked the new files, don't ask to delete the old one.
