    webm to mp3 Conversion?

    Any ideas how I can convert .webm format to .mp3. ffmpeg is only an encoder for the format not a decoder.

    Many Thanks

    Latests version of VLC can decode and encode webm. Depending on what Ubuntu version are you using, you may already have a version that can do it.

    There is also an app called Arista Transcoder, that I know can code webm. It could be interesting to check if it can decode too.

    Just some thoughts,
    Regards.

    ffmpeg should be able to decode it and create a MP3.
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i input.webm -acodec libmp3lame -aq 4 output.mp3
    First you may have to enable libmp3lame in ffmpeg (see option B):
    HOWTO: Easily enable MP3, MPEG4, AAC, and other restricted encoders in FFmpeg
